Six illustrated ebooks for kids by a writer I know personally…
OK…I know it’s shameless self-promotion, but since I’m the writer, singer, illustrator, publisher, publicist, promotion team, and blogger for the TonyFunderburk.com empire I can’t delegate it to anyone else. Please forgive me and read on…
What’s the greatest source for a vivid imagination?
Kids of course.
Have you ever talked to a kid, asked him a question that doesnâ€™t make sense, and watched the imagination machine start to churn? Itâ€™s a fun thing to do, and I do it all the time. For instanceâ€¦I might ask a 5 year old boy or girl why the sky is so green today. Theyâ€™re old enough to know the sky is blue, but a grownup just asked why itâ€™s so green. So their imagination starts to spin and they try to make sense of it even though they also like to make nonsense out of it, too.
The looks kids can get in their eyes are priceless. I never get tired of seeing the consternationâ€¦and the wonder.
Thatâ€™s a big reason why I started writing and illustrating ebooks for kids.Â Their minds havenâ€™t had the dreams beat out of â€˜em yet. They donâ€™t think in terms of having their hands tied by a job or a family or a mortgage or whatever. They still think an elephant can fly or hatch a â€œwhoâ€. Itâ€™s a blast to write with my thought waves in their world.
If you have kids, I encourage you to spend time in their world. Rememberâ€¦once upon a timeâ€¦
…it was your world.
