Jan Brett's books. Even though I think Mom has moved on from that phase, a Jan Brett book will always remind me of her. So, when we heard that Mrs. Brett was stopping in Little Rock one her newest book tour, we lined up at Barnes and Noble to meet her. If you've never seen one of her books, you really should tack on down. They are beautifully illustrated with a Scandinavian flare. She did a drawing demonstration and then signed books. When it was our turn to have our book signed, she was so friendly and warm as she tried to persuade Lucy to become an author/illustrator. Lucy was in awe.
