Jan Brett on Tour - Billings, MT

Are you looking for books for the Christmas season?  Maybe stories to start a new tradition or to enhance an existing family tradition.  Check out two of Jan Brett's Christmas stories.
Her newest book is "Home for Christmas" about Rollo the troll.  "The Night Before Christmas" illustrated by Jan Brett is my favorite rendition of Samuel Clement's famous poem.  This book was first released in 1998.  This year it was re-released with a DVD featuring her fantastic artwork and music by the Boston Pops.  Jan is donating her profits to the Boston Pops as a fundraiser for them.
Jan Brett is a fabulous illustrator.  Her books for children are beautiful.  Thursday November 17, 2011 she did a presentation in Billings, Montana.  I loved her presentation as she showed us how to draw a moose.  She took the time to visit with each person who attended her book signing.  A very gracious lady.
She is also hosting a contest.  People are encouraged to take pictures of her tour bus when they see it.  If they down load a picture they are eligible to win 10 books for their school.  Please check out her facebook page and vote for your favorite picture.  The one I submitted is "Reading Takes You Places"
