Author and illustrator Rick Chrustowski drew a crowd of kids and their parents to a program at the St. Michael Public Library on Monday, June 23. The author of "Blue Sky Bluebird," and "Bright Beetle" described the process of writing and illustrating a book, answered questions, and got the kids involved by having them learn about collage art illustrating. The kids created their own collage art birds. Chrustowski also got their creativity going by having them draw a background for their bird and imagine a story for their picture. There will be at least one program a week at the St. Michael library through the end of the Summer Reading Program. It is not too late to sign up!
