I had an original idea…
“A Salmon’s Sky View” began as the idea of using art to make reading fun and engaging. As a teacher and a parent of creative children, I imagined it would be great to finish reading a picture book and then to have the art directions to re-create the illustrations. I wanted kids to feel the joy of succeeding and expressing themselves.
I wrote the non-fiction story of the life cycle of a salmon. I love salmon. The world I want has an abundance of salmon in it. Not only is the salmon a part of our teaching curriculum but it is a vital part our natural heritage in British Columbia, Canada.
