ROSEMARY WELLS

Max's Bedtime by Rosemary Wells

Max's Bedtime by Rosemary Wells

Rosemary Wells has written more than 130 books. I chose the board book MAX’S BEDTIME because the cover has one of the most endearing expressions ever, as does Max's bunny-sort-of-bear. Wells said: "Simple incidents from childhood are universal. The dynamics between older and younger siblings are common to all families.”

Her dogs, west highland terriers, Lucy and Snowy, worked their way into her drawings in expression and body position. I bet one of them was the inspiration for the expression on Max’s face. Can’t you just see it?

The second image is of Max unable to sleep. Again it is utterly perfect!

Among her many books are:
RUBY'S BEAUTY SHOP
MAX'S CHRISTMAS
BUNNY PART
MAX'S CHOCOLATE CHICKEN
BUNNY CAKES

After a fun-filled day at TelHi during their summer program, these preschool and 1st graders are coloring my line drawings. The story is based on my MY DOG HENRY Preschool Color Story. Like everyone else, I of course write stories about my dog, a charming yorkie named Henry. The children were terrific and inspired, although by this time they were ready for their pick me up snack!

These photos are from my first TelHi event with my Color and Write Stories. I was delighted that so many of the children opted to participate and then asked me to come back and do some more. The children went from K to 5th, so we needed projects of different ability. The older children got stories with speech bubbles. This boy is working on my FRITZY BANG BANG CREATES A STAR story.

FRITZY BANG BANG DOES CLEANUP is fed up with all the people throwing rubbish into the ocean. Find out all about it by going to my Color and Write page. Everything can be downloaded for free. My Color and Write Stories are fun for children who have begun to write, as there are speech bubbles to be filled in on each of the four pages, and a writing prompt page.

These Color and Write Stories are finding their way into classrooms, after school programs and home schooling. They are also fun for instilling teamwork as each story can be divided between four children working on the same project.
