A Very Special Skype (and lots of singing) With Illustrator Tim Palin & My 2nd Grade Friends At Van Meter

On Friday, my little 2nd grade friends in Tracy Ferguson's class at Van Meter met me on Skype for something very special.

We were going to meet one of our favorite new illustrators Tim Palin who illustrated....
Itsy Bitsy Spider...
and The Bear Went Over The Mountain from Cantata Learning.
Tim showed all of us how he created illustrations by drawing first on paper....
 transferring the drawing to his Microsoft Surface...
 and then coloring them in.  We all thought this looked like such a FUN job.
 We loved seeing his most recent project too.

After all of the amazing questions asked by the 2nd graders, Tim shared Itsy Bitsy Spider.  
Tracy pulled up the music from the Cantata Learning website.  You can listen to the music here too.

All of the books from Cantata Learning are made up of beautiful stories and songs, which are available on the website.  This makes it so easy for teachers, students, and families to enjoy all of the Cantata titles anywhere.

Thank you Tim for visiting Tracy's 2nd graders.....We loved your visit and as you know, we love your books.  

We can't wait to see the next!
