The Easter Egg Artists

Two years ago, Hannah and I read and loved The Easter Egg Artists book.  And we continue to come back to it for inspiration.  A few days ago I said, "When I grow up, I want to be a doctor and go to other countries to help people through the Doctors Without Borders program."  Hannah, now age four, responded with this.  "When I grow up, I want to travel all over the world and go shopping and be an artist and paint buildings like Easter Abbott."  (His real name is Orson.)  I can imagine Hannah in another land painting stripes and polka dots and flowers upon a bridge or airplane or skyscraper.  She will most certainly enjoy painting the world with beautiful colors.  And all inspired by another awesome book we found at our local library.
