  1. We attended a workshop for homeschoolers today and it was awesome!! My 5 year old loves to create his own storybooks and now he wants to make a book and give it to his new hero – James Foley!! Thanks for your inspiration!

  2. Also in addition to my comment above, my 5 year old has now told me instead of being Iron Man or Spiderman when he grows up, he now wants to “work at the library and make books – like James Foley.” How amazing is that!

    1. That’s so nice to hear! Maybe he doesn’t have to give up being Iron Man or Spider-man though (maybe he could be a writer/illustrator as well as a superhero??)

      Thanks for the feedback Hayley!

  3. I’ll be meeting you soon James! I’m one the Curating Kids from Perth Festival! Can’t wait to meet you! πŸ˜€

  4. Im a teacher educator as well as the director of a company that provides writing retreats and literacy support for writers of all ages and backgrounds. I loved finding out more about James’ work by attending the Kids Book Fest Illustrator Extravaganza! Looking forward to finding ways to inspire struggling students using James’ wonderful books as well as his amazing approach to being an author and illustrator. Thanks for the session. It was awesome!
