Hello, Fall
How's the Weather Up There?

Jan Brett's Advice

From the Elmira (NY) Star-Gazette:

[Jan Brett] says her message to the children she meets on book tours is plain: Take the time to create something yourself.

"I tell them to turn off the television and listen to the voice within them," she says. "Don't listen to any other voices than your own. Then get your art materials out and create something wonderful."

In the newspaper article Brett talks about her latest picture book, Hedgie Blasts Off. I think that her advice works for adults, too.
