Dinosaur Coloring Pages for Kids
It's a new week which means, your kids get access to a new coloring page. This week I created a dinosaur coloring page based on a request from an instagram story poll.
I am creating some really fun and imaginative coloring pages that your kids might enjoy. There is nothing traditional about these coloring pages. These illustrations have the come from the mind of MimoArt and will hopefully have your kids smiling extra big as the color in these fun pages.
This week's coloring page is of a large dinosaur.
This adorable and kind of grumpy looking dinosaur is so huge; he is literally walking with his head above the clouds. The dinosaur have some cool back spikes that go all the way down his back. Additionally, this dinosaur has a unique speckled pattern around its body that can allow for some interesting contrast as your children color the page.

Because most people are staying safe at home and their kids are going crazy, I decided to make my coloring pages free while we are at home.

New Animal Art From Pink
New Animal Art From PinkEarly this year, I launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for my new children's book, Pink. Pink is a funny and imaginative children's book with tons of beautiful animal art for kids. Who doesn't love fun and funky animal characters colored in pink?
Build your own animal art gallery today.
The campaign fell short of reaching its goal. However, it was a great experience, and I learned a ton. The Kickstarter was also a great reminder of why everyone should set goals. Having the main focus of launching my children's book through a Kickstarter campaign allowed me to prioritize my time. Most of the time was dedicated to creating all the animal drawings for my book. Being organized, allowed me to make sure I was meeting my deadlines so that I was prepared to launch the campaign and full-fill all my goal promises.
So, I took my story and all my animal art, and I launched my book on Amazon. The book looks good, and I completed my higher goal of bringing my story and vision to life in a beautiful book for children and adults to enjoy. A byproduct of my accomplishments is that I now have all this beautiful animal artwork and the main character Zoe, which is why I have finally added my watercolor animal drawings to FineArtAmerica.com.
Below are a few of the animal paintings from Pink that you can now purchase online. FineArtAmerica will print, frame, and ship everything to your home, ready to hang! These framed animal prints make great Christmas gifts for animal lovers and excellent nursery art!
If you are looking for a specific animal and don't see them on my site, you can hire me to create custom animal drawings or other drawings that you might want.
In other news, I am working on my bringing my next story to life. It's going to include a monster, some more animals, and some insects.
It's sure to bring a lot of joy to the world. I will try to post an update of that story soon.
4.26.19 - Today is the day I have been working so diligently towards!
My 2nd kids book, Pink, is now LIVE, yes, I finally said it, Live on Kickstarter!!!! :)
Thank you for all your support over the past few months, weeks and days.

Children all across the world will love you forever! :)
Funny Kids Book That Teaches Color Theory
There has never been a time in the world better than now to look for and find funny kids books for children. There are so many talented writers and illustrators that are creating some very funny children's books. Some of my favorite kids books are by local (to me) authors living in New England author Josh Funk and Peter Reynolds. Another one of my all time favorite children's book authors and illustrators is Oliver Jeffers. Who doesn't enjoy his stories and artwork?
I have been working on a new children's book for a few years now that teaches kids about creating new colors. The story, which I will also create a coloring book for kids that enjoy a silly coloring book, is about a girl named Zoe that loves painting everything in the color PINK! Yes, Pink!
This funny picture book takes children on a journey and explores the wonderful magic of mixing colors together and is sure to make children and parents laugh while teaching them about color.
Additionally, along with one of the kickstarter tiers I am including a pink coloring book with coloring book pages for children that love coloring. And what kid doesn't love to color?
Here's a sneak peek of one of the pages from my children's book: Pink.

A Starfish Story
If you haven't heard of the starfish story, you may know it by the title: " The Star Thrower. " The person that wrote the starfish story is Loren Eiseley, the author of The Immense Journey. Loren's story has stood the test of time as people often look back and reference The Star Thrower when having a conversation regarding change and someone's ability to make a true difference in the world.
In 2014, inspired by Mr. Eiseley, I created my own starfish story for children, parents, teachers, and anyone that likes picture books and, of course, a fun story. The cover of my book "Addison's Starfish Adventure," is pictured below.
My Starfish Story for Kids
As I mentioned, I was inspired by Mr. Eiseley's starfish story, so I dedicated a page in my book in honor of his book. The starfish story's meaning helps inspire anyone that crosses path with it. The meaning of the story is one that can resonate with anyone because each and everyone one of us has the ability to make a difference in the world. The Starfish Thrower is an empowering story that enables people to be the change they want to see in the world.
Readers receive wonderful wisdom from a starfish story. The Starfish Story is a seemingly simple story that delivers a profound meaning that has transcended generations and appeals to new readers every year.
My starfish story takes children on an adventure to the ocean to find starfish. The main character, Addison, is fun, energetic, and loves the ocean. She also teaches kids how to summon or call the starfish. My starfish story is a silly picture book for kids that also includes a few fun and free activities and interactive elements that kids enjoy.
Starfish Story Gifts
This picture book makes a great gift for any boy or girl.

Art Jam in Manchester, New Hampshire
In August, I will be displaying my art at a local Art Show in Manchester, NH called Art Jam at Riverside.
It's a cool art festival where artists and musicians are coming together to raise money for local organizations to help fight the heroin/opioid crisis in our community.
Another unique feature about this festival is that all the artists that are displaying their craft at the show will also be creating art live in front of the crowd. There are a ton of talented artist working in many different mediums. This art show is sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the artists and everyone in attendance.
Once I have more information regarding my booth location I will post about it and share more information about the show!
Where Do I Find The Best Children's Book in Spanish?
It's not easy scouring the internet sifting through ten, twenty, maybe even hundreds of blogs, and Amazon reviews looking for a few recommendations for some of the best children's books that are translated in Spanish. I know because I went through this exhausting process myself! I spent way too many hours searching for some great books in Spanish.
That's why I decided to create this post of some of the best Spanish storybooks available. Some of my favorite and common children's books in Spanish for ages one to two years old were compiled by babycenter.com are: Los Colores and Harold y El Lapiz De Color. If you haven't read these books, I highly recommend them!
A few years ago, I created a children's book (my own starfish story) about a girl named Addison that goes on a wild adventure with the hopes of finding a starfish at the ocean. It's read all around the world by families kids looking to have fun exploring the beach for sea stars and learn more about these wonderful sea creatures.
Because of all the success, my kids' book had, I decided to have Addison's Starfish Adventure translated into Spanish and contribute to the increasing number of children's books in Spanish.
If you are looking for another website with more recommendations, I found another excellent resource with a great list of Spanish children's stories for children of all ages. There is a wide range of books for kids starting in pre-K to children in the fifth and sixth grades, and I am sure you will find the Spanish book you want.
I am currently working on two new children's books that I intend to have translated into Spanish for bilingual kids and hopefully, many other languages in the future.
