So each story and poem was based on research, in order to challenge the kids intelectually, and was written through their eyes. I started drawing coloring pages for my young audience, based on my paintings. When I worked with gifted kids, I was asked to let kids write and draw freely, and renounce the coloring pages.

Plato

Rose Wilder Lane

Jean Piaget
