Tour the Denise Fleming Story Park!

Awhile back I interviewed author/illustrator Denise Fleming and shared that interview here.  I mentioned that her work is on display at the Sanger Branch Library in Toledo, OH.  That library was gracious enough to share photos from the Denise Fleming Story Park.  And now I’m sharing them with you 🙂

Welcome! You are in for a treat. Follow me on an e-tour of the famous Denise Fleming Story Park, which celebrates the artwork of this renowned picture book author and illustrator. You’ll feel like you’ve just stepped into one of Fleming’s books. Guaranteed!

It’s a dream of mine to have my work displayed in a library.  What are some of your dreams?  Please share!  In the meantime, enjoy the warm glow of these fiery fireflies.  According to Ted Andrew’s book, Animal-Wise, fireflies symbolize inspiration and the promise of accomplishment through hope and efforts.  May fireflies light the path to your own dreams so that you can make them come true.

    Your blog posts always make me smile! How cool is that story park at the library! Denise’s picture books were some of the favorites I shared with my daughter when she was younger. Thanks for the firefly symbolism!

    Thanks for sharing this Angie. It is one of my favorite children’s library areas. I never get tired of seeing it.

    What a beautiful display! Thank you for sharing this, Angie! One of my dreams is to have my artwork displayed on greeting cards (something I’ve been working on)

    I love the idea of what the fireflies represent. I hope and dream about an exhibition and book of my work.

    This is SO fabulous! I bet the kiddos (and their adults) must be thrilled to have such a beautiful and creative environment to spend time in.
