Eric Carle Sketch and Tell Review and a {HUGE} Thank you to Canson for supporting Mami on a McMission!


I just wanted to give a {Huge} Thank You to the wonderful people at Canson!  We received a wonderful Sketch and Tell Book by Eric Carle.  The Eric Carle who has written some of the most wonderful children's books.  Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? is the first book the Savvy fell in love with...she could "recite" it to you when she was just a year old....needless to say we have a love for Eric Carle books in our home....and as a scrapbooker I have a love for Canson products so the combination is just delightful!


Savvy loved drawing in her Eric Carle Sketch and Tell book but since she doesn't know how to write yet this became a nice project for the both of us...she explained what her "Picasso" was and Mami wrote a description for her.  The books are small and super easy for travel...as a Mami who spent a lot of time in hospitals I think this is a great companion for children who are hospitalized.  It allows them to create through art and express their feelings and to narrate them as well...just think this is so critical for children who go through so much when they are sick and sometimes struggle with how to express their feelings.

You know what else?  This amazing company sent some wonderful goodies for Mami on a McMission (M.O.M.)!  Yes, I am beyond delighted to have received some beautiful scrapbooks and Eric Carle sketch books and other wonderful items to share with the children who will walk through the Ronald McDonald House in Fort Lauderdale through M.O.M. 






When Savvy didn't have the words to express herself she did have art...this gift means a great deal ... Thank You...Thank You for Caring!
