Scott Casperson is an Air Force brat who was lucky enough to get to explore new & far away places. He was able to settle down long enough to graduate from the University of Florida. He put his degree in advertising to good use for a number of years in a few different cities before trying his hand at other things including hospitality, children’s education & comedy (sometimes all three at once!). Now, he’s taking that creativity & channeling it into the perfect medium for him, children’s books. How The Candy Cane Got Its Stripes is his first printed work. He’s honored to have you join him on this adventure & thanks you immensely for your interest & support. Thank you.
It's Sandcastle Building Day Children's Picture Book Launch Party with the Author Shirley Castro and the Illustrator Cathleen Abalos
Sunday Nov. 5th @ 1pm
In It’s Sandcastle Building Day you are immersed in a family’s journey to the beach, as you enjoy the gorgeous illustrations of artist Cathleen Abalos, and author Shirley Castro’s short, rhythmic, repeatable phrases, designed to help kids read along.
You’ll join right in with the family’s fun as they gather up the important things to take with them, and then head to the beach to build their sandy masterpiece. The warmth and caring of the family members for each other shine through in the beautifully designed illustrations. The description of the parts of the sandcastle will inspire you to try out your own version the next time you go to the beach. And the phrase, “Sand castle, land castle, pat it with my hand castle!” will stick in your mind and make you smile.
