I remember walking into the house and seeing a stack of paper on the table, what used to be simple computer paper had been transformed into a world of characters with elaborate color and details including hats and accessories. To our nanny these were nothing more than just sketches, but this stack of drawings was what we came to love as an expression of time spent in imagination and exploration. A physical stack that would ultimately inform how my children see the world. When we draw with our children we don't only spend time with them, we teach them a way of communicating where sometimes words don't allow.
My main goal here at the press is to encourage kids to draw on everything we make! I believe as a parent that their toys are for them to develop and learn from. As we mourn the loss of our precious nanny, Justyna, we have more of her than just memories, we have a living memento that she was a part of our lives. This memento is an expression of love, laughter, and above all her amazing talents.
