Passport to the Arts


Last Saturday ArtsObispo sponsored Passport to the Arts for families. Designed to have children and their parents become involved in the arts in San Luis Obispo, California, the program directed them to various events downtown.

I was at the local library showing children how to fold various book forms and encouraging them to write and illustrate their own stories. I was delighted that a number of enthusiastic children and parents attended. We folded several accordion books forms and talked about where story ideas come from. I encouraged parents to immortalize their children’s stories by copying, self-publishing and other means. I hope the City and art community has another such event next year, and I encourage other cities to do the same. Beryl


About berylreichenberg

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
