Cars! Cars! Cars!

Meet Rosario—she loves cars! She knows everything there is to know about cars. She can’t wait until she can drive a car. But which one does she want? A race car? A spy car? A purple, green, or blue car? Which would you choose? As Rosario considers her options, from a Ferrari F1 race car to a Volkswagen to a Smart Car, she realizes that her dream car might not be the one she expected.

Featuring ten cars from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, this whimsical children’s book invites young readers to imagine their own ideal vehicle, and to think about what’s best for the environment and the future (Source).

Let me introduce myself—I am Kimi Weart and I do many things. I am a writer, an illustrator, a designer, an artist, and an environmental activist. I am multiethnic, a nature lover, and an advocate for invisible disabilities. I have temporal lobe epilepsy and essential tremors (involuntary shaking). I now primarily use the Apple Pencil on the iPad instead of working with traditional artistic media—did you know that in ProCreate you can adjust settings to compensate for a shaky hand? Amazing! I love reading children’s books. I still have my childhood copy of Where the Wild Things Are. I write poems about helicopters and hummingbirds. I like drawing in front of the TV. I live in New York with my family and two cats and a pollinator garden that rabbits are currently using as a salad bar (Source).
