Bedtime Stories ~ Harold and the Purple Crayon
“Harold and the Purple Crayon was one of my favorite books as a kid. I loved the idea of creating your own world. Something I think is really important today. Create the world you want to see and be the person you would want to be friends with.” Patty Sherin 10/24/17.
Artist and native New Yorker, Patty Sherin has had a passion for colors, patterns and the creativity that comes with using your hands to create beautiful, engaging pieces people of all ages can enjoy.
What began as a hobby when her grandmother taught her to crochet at just 10 years old, quickly grew into her life’s ambition as she grew older.
Setting out on her creative journey, she had the opportunity to learn how to cross-stitch pictures and plastic canvas patterns by her friend, Annie, and further expanded her many artistic experiences in college.
It was in college where she became the Vice President of Knitting-It-Together—a charity organization that allowed her to create hats and scarves for local homeless—and participated in the Linus Project which allowed her to use art to give back to charity.
And then, in 2012, she received a Volkswagen T1 Camper Van which reignited her love of the colorful stacking blocks we all know and love—LEGO®.
The perfect medium for her to combine her love of colors and patterns, Patty’s artistic pursuits have thrived in the San Francisco Bay area thanks to support from the Create! Art Collective and families all over the area.
Now, Patty is bringing her love of LEGO® to the residents of Coastside and the Bay Area with A Night of LEGO® and Libations, birthday parties for kids, and events for seniors. Please visit her website at http://mobrickz.com to learn more.

How to Use Bedtime Stories as an Independent Reading Tutor
Prepare your child for a relaxing audio podcast experience. Whether in the car, the store, or before bed, let your child immerse their ear in their imagination. School is largely auditory. So, prepare your kid to listen and visualize a story without TV or video. Just listen!
Then share the book to the audio. Listen and read. Allow your child to teach themselves to read. Using visual/audio anchor words your child will figure out the visual/sound connections by themselves. Eventually, they will be able to read the book to you all by themselves!
