by S. L. Jackson My First Holiday Coloring Art Project Book focuses on six holidays we celebrate each year: Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It is different because its not just a coloring book. Its an art project book. Examples of the fun projects you can make while exploring this book are: Easter baskets out of shoe boxes, Halloween bags out of lunch bags, and Christmas ornaments using your childs photo. This book also helps toddlers recognize the different holidays, and it helps with their development of their eye and hand coordination. It has the kind of art projects toddlers make in daycare centers, using supplies such as crayons, scissors, and glue. My First Holiday Coloring Art Project Book includes two stories, three poems, and two craft projects. The art projects are a lot of fun to make and they are very easy to do, with very simple, sequential instructions. ABOUT THE AUTHOR I am a single mother of two daughters, one has special needs. I have two brothers, and four sisters who give names to the characters in my book. My family, and I were born at Mount Sinai Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. I am still a resident of my hometown. I graduated from J.F. Kennedy Sr. High School in 1983. I attended Cuyahoga Community College in 1987 and studies a course in Early Child Day Care, and became a Home Day Care Provider. My first creation of the Easter Sign was created in 1988 at Creative Playrooms. In 1992 I had my own home day care center called Childrens Land Activity Center. In 1992 I created the Shoe Box Easter Basket, Halloween Bag, Christmas Ornaments, and Santa Claus. In the year 2000 I decided to put my creations together to make a book to get published so that parents could spent time with their children at home. I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, I enjoy jazz music, writing poems, making latch hook rugs, playing with my dog Max, and watching the Cleveland Browns, and Indians on TV.
