It was nearly a year ago when I met illustrator Lisa Cinar at Got Craft? and fell in love with her Draw Me a Lion line of drawings for kids to colour. I bought Owen a poster of cats that we all coloured on and off for a week. We had so much fun, and fell in love with those cats, so we put the poster into an Ikea frame and it hangs in Owenâ€™s room.
For Hanukkah this year, Iâ€™d had it in mind to pick up Lisa’s other poster, of dogs. But then I learned that sheâ€™s just published a new colouring book of flags and pennants, and was having a launch party yesterday at the ever fabulous Collage Collage. I love that Owenâ€™s getting old enough to participate in events like these, so we drove across town to celebrate.
Obviously, I bought the colouring book. I have it in mind to put flags up all over our house.
Greg made the space-alien flag. I love it so much.
Seriously, Collage Collage is one of the best kids shops in all of Vancouver. Their expertly curated selection of books spans little-kid stories that are stunningly illustrated to gorgeous books for adults. Naturally, Owen wanted Greg to read him the book about diggers.
