I’m sure that many of you with children know who Todd Parr is. For those who don’t, all I can say is that he’s a wonderful children’s book writer and illustrator (The Peace Book, The I Love You Book, and many more) who does AMAZING things with color. Diving into one of his books is like washing yourself in a bathtub full of primary colors and simple shapes that parents and children both love.
With the message of peace and love running throughout, who can resist?
He’s also an artist who has devoted much time and energy to charitable organizations such as the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, the ASPCA and many others. His works are collected by the likes of Rachel Ray, and more.
Now YOUR KIDS can WEAR the art of Todd Parr. Beginning on August 15, Parr’s bright and funky t-shirt, fleece and dresses will be found at Nordstrom.
For those lucky moms and kids who live in the Chicago area. Todd Parr will be making a PERSONAL APPEARANCE to read, draw and entertain his fans.
