Discovering Jan Brett’s Kids’ Projects

Have you visited author Jan Brett’s web site?  Hers is one of the most enjoyable online places for finding projects for youngsters, in addition to information about her books and art.

Jan is a children’s author/illustrator whose art fascinates young and older.  Many of the primary grade teachers, in schools where I substitute teach, print off Jan’s coloring sheets, art hints, games and other activities.  There are even videos with drawing instruction.

Her mascot, Hedgie, the hedgehog, becomes involved in much of this and creates added fascination for the youngsters.

You also can subscribe to Hedgie’s free e-newsletter so that you receive updates and links to Hedgie and Jan’s projects.

Are any of you using Jan’s books and materials as a parent, home schooling parent or classroom teacher?
