An annual event in every elementary-school classroom is the taking of the group portrait. Here, the “kids” are made up of buttons and bits of string, cardboard, feathers, grommets, and such, and are a pretty disheveled lot before Glue (late; “stuck in traffic”) arrives to sort everyone out and settle everything down. An imaginative invitation to seeing, to creative crafts, to story-hour performance.
Katherine Tillotson is the illustrator of several children's books. For the story of It's Picture Day Today", she cut paper that she created herself by drawing patterns on paper with paste, a centuries-old technique that crafters may be familiar with. Ms. Tillotson lives in San Francisco with her husband. Visit her at KatherineTillotson.com.
