An Interview with

Miss Anna

Miss Anna wrote The Shape Story books for her four children, especially for her youngest. We asked her why, since there are already a great many children’s books on colors and shapes, thousands in fact, some being more well known than others. At this, she replied that she envisioned a different kind of story-telling. She wanted to write a story that is more than a bulletin board of facts. That is not to say that she does not like facts. She does. Her books are full of “nuggets of knowledge” as she calls it, but they are nuggets packaged naturally within the story. She imagined a book that will speak to the child directly as if the child is actually there with the characters and a story that will be loved by the whole family, even the older siblings.

 

Like adults, children do not judge a book by its cover. They too gauge the content and how the content is presented, and they are most difficult to please. In fact, they are the harshest critics, and Miss Anna has four of them at home. Searching her mind and heart, she says she wanted to write a story (about colors and shapes) that will be engaging, informative, and educational, and yet still be warm, friendly, welcoming, and full of childlike mirth (for they are still children). She says beautiful illustrations are important, but adds that if the content does not pique the interest or strike the fancy of an adult reader, you can half expect the child to toss that book aside, never to pick it up again. Hence, The Shape Story, which is four stories in all, is the beautiful outcome of her imaginative playing with her children.  

 

 

So, here there are, four new stories that will sweep your child (and you) into a world of shapes and colors!
