When I am fortunate enough to collaborate with a great author, like I was this time, I occasionally will gift them with a piece of the original artwork. The book is their baby as well as mine, so I know it will be going to a good home!
Rick Recht was kind enough to send me this photo of the piece I sent him from our book, “Thank you for Me”.
See, I knew it would have a good home– Thanks, Rick!

Now on to the
**DOUBLE BOOK** GIVEAWAY!!!
There are two ways you can win a free signed, hard copy of Noah’s Swim-a-Thon!
**Plus, just for fun, I’ll also throw in a copy of my board book, “Thank you for Me”. So you will actually win TWO books. **
Just leave any comment about swimming below–how you learned to swim, taught your kid–whatever you like. You’ll get 1 entry into the hat.
The winner will be drawn in two weeks, and be mailed their signed copy just in time to start the camp season.
And by the way…if anyone out of the goodness of their hearts wants to go over to the amazon page for Noah’s Swim-a-Thon and express their thoughts on the book in the review section, authors such as myself usually enjoy that sort of thing…just sayin’.
Summer is coming into view! Kids can color in these sunglasss that reflect different things they might be doing this Summer: enjoying the water, sun, maybe going on a trip or just chilling in the backyard. They can finish the third pair themselves with their own Summer plans.
Just click on the image below, and print.

And..since we are on the subject of fun and funky glasses…must take a moment to give a shout out to my fellow PBAA‘ers book:
Looks too fun, no?
Ari Rockoff commisioned me to make this piece for his wife Deborah on the occasion of their annivesary a while back. (sweet, right?). Their kids names are in the chimney, and their names make up the path. A quote from the wedding ceremony forms the house.
Anyway, on a lark I entered it in an online illustration contest—and it won! Check it out over at “The Whole Megillah”.
Beautiful and colorful flowers for Shavuoth.
1-Drip water color paints onto coffee filters. They will bleed and blend beautifully!
2-Once it’s dry, pinch the filter in the center and form a cone like shape. Twist a pipe cleaner around the bottom to form the flower.
3-Add beads to the pipe cleaner
4- Turn the bottom of the pipe cleaner up, and twist in a loop to keep beads from falling off.
Slightly complicated just because you have to wait for the paint to dry. A quicker, easier variation would be to decorate the filters with markers…but not as pretty, I think.
And if you want a kit,I have never tried these but they look really fun:Alex Giant Tissue Paper Flowers In A Vase Craft Kit
I apologize! I totally dropped the ball and missed Yom Haa’ztmaut. But here is one for Yom Yerushalayim as a make-up. Enjoy.
