There is something magical about reading to a child. My mom read to me often and I cherish those memories.
One of my favorite books was a manuscript my mom had written, â€œHerbie Hic-upâ€. Iâ€™ve always dreamed of getting momâ€™s book published. She had sketched illustrations, but wanted an illustrator to bring the visuals to life.
Fast forward 40+ years. I may have grown-up, but I still dreamed of asking my favorite British designer, Jon Hicks, if he would consider illustrating my momâ€™s book.
2010, I finally asked Jon. I was so thrilled when he said he would give it a goâ€¦that I squealed and bounced around like a little kid. I may have grown older, but I have the heart and soul of a 4 year old (and I wouldnâ€™t have it any other way).
