"Stuff I Remember" is truly delightful. Blurbarian Stuart Scolnik describes it thus:
Our Dad sketched his childhood memories on a sketch pad. The images were sorted, printed and presented on his 80th birthday, with love from his family. The illustrations artistically tell the story of a simpler time and a boy's intimate relationship with a world around him called the Bronx. Dad's attention to detail helps us revisit the objects, experiences and emotions of his happy youth. We hope you enjoy his journey.I did! I enjoyed Willard's sense of humor too. You don't have to know Willard to enjoy this book, but by the time you finish it, you'll probably wish you did.
- Learn to sketch! I'll never be an artist, but art doesn't have to be fine to be fun.
- When there's no photo to illustrate a story you want to tell, creating a simple drawing could really personalize a page of text. Consider whether such a drawing would fit with the mood of your book--is your book formal/scholarly/research-oriented or informal/warm & fuzzy/personal?
