Books to Treasure 2017
Every year our library system brings in a children's book illustrator for a special program called Books to Treasure. Second graders can get a free book and a special library card designed by the illustrator.
This year's illustrator was Rafael Lopez.
Waiting for the presentation to begin!
He told about growing up in Mexico City.
When he was 11, he got to go live in England with a family friend for a few months.
His illustrations are painted on wood panels and then scanned.
He did a fun activity where he drew things the kids suggested.
It was a great presentation (as always) and we actually were in the car and ready to leave by 8:05, which was a miracle considering some of the lines we've waited in before!
