This better world project is for helping children understand their role as better world artists. Young artists will soon inherit the role of building a better world. The Quest We Share is a delightful children's book that inspires, uplifts and sets goals for a whole new generation of artists. It was created in a collaboration between Books Make Booms and Artists For a Better World. It is part of the Rhyme for Young Readers Series published by QuickTurtle Books®.
I have an idea
big and profound,
to build me a ship
to fly world around.
I'll strum my guitar
and patter* my drum,
put tap in their feet
and snap in their thumb.
*patter- make rapid taps
I'll take swatches* of red
and swatches* of sweet;
I'll paint big smiles
on the people I meet.
* swatches- sample of clothe or other material such as paint
I really love your illustration for "I'll strum my guitar..."!
It is all wonderful!
I love the simple glossary at the end and the link to Artists for a Better World. I'll tell Louis about the poetry contest...I even have one of my own.
Artists are civilization builders and visionaries. Without artists the world would be a drab and dismal place. Can you imagine a civilization without music, without poetry or without books? That would be no civilization at all. The strength of artists can be found in their ability to build and maintain a flourishing better world project.
The Quest We Share authors Mary and Richard Rensberry invite you and your artist friends to become members of Artists For A Better World.
