Today I was thinking of a favorite Maine Illustrator, Jamie Hogan. Jamie is a very talented artists as well as a gifted teacher. She is always sharing her knowledge with kids in one way or another. Today I want to give a shout out to Jamie and mention a book of poetry she illustrated - Nest, Nook & Cranny poems by Susan Blackaby.
Jamie spent with my class - Read Across America in 2012 - and the kids had a memorable day. They were able to put their Private Eye skills to work and learn new illustration techniques.
