About our book
Our adventure with this book began in February 2020 when our homeschooling family visited The Frist Art Museum for a special exhibit on Eric Carle’s unique children’s book artwork. upon our return, we decided to try our hand at creating animal art in his style.
To learn more about our whole story watch the video below.
In April 2022, we hosted a book launch party to celebrate the milestone moment of publishing our book.
Friends and family who supported us on this adventure joined us for refreshments and a chance to hear Averee and Miles read the book for the first time.
