You Will Know Water

One summer in my twenties I was the coordinator for all the Children’s summer programs at the Williams Lake Public Library and this summer I am stepping back into that realm by planning an activity for the Peachland Library’s summer reading program.

A few years ago I illustrated a children’s book by Rebecca Tyson titled “You Will Know Water”. We published it privately in 2 small editions. This summer Rebecca is going to join me in Peachland to read her book to the children and then I am going to do a fun painting activity with them.

It’s a free workshop but you have to sign up. If you have young children in the Okanagan, you can sign up by calling the Peachland Library at 250-767-9111. There are weekly reading programs at the library, but our activity is planned for Wednesday, July 13th, 2011 from 10am – 11am.

Here’s a peak at some of the artwork from the book:

    Hi Kendra,
    May I obtain a copy of this book? Or two? The illustrations are perfect. As if they would be anything less. You are terrific.

      At the moment I do not have any extra books, although you can sign it out as I donated a copy to the Public Library in Peachland, BC, Canada. If you would really like 2 copies of your own, I may be able to order them for you, but unfortunately they are quite expensive for such a little book. Let me know at kendra at kendrart dot com and I can order them for you or put your name on a waiting list for the next time we print some.

  3. Spot on with this write-up, I actually feel this site needs much more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the info!
