I have a dream job as an executive editor for a book packager that makes beautiful books, including lots of cookbooks. However, I work on everything except cookbooks (although I had the honor of commissioning recipes from Lou Seibert Pappas for the Hallmark book Home for the Holidays).
Among my favorite are the books I’ve created for Gymboree.
I adore this series of board books. I worked with a linguist to provide Spanish, French, German, and Italian translations with phonetics for the Colors, Numbers, and Shapes books. An Alphabet book completes the set.
For activity ideas for parents and children to do together: Play and Learn: 1001 Fun Activities For Your Baby and Child.
For wrap-and-go birthday presents. I’m partial to Music Play (comes with maracas) because Carter modeled for it. Other options: Dance Play (comes with movement scarves), and Face Painting. On a Pirate Ship and In a Princess Castle are kits that come with giant color-in posters, stickers, and crayons.
