1. Jarrett Krosoczka’s TED Talk: How a boy became an artist

We met Jarrett Krosoczka during our six-day Rock Stars of Reading road trip. While visiting his studio one afternoon, Jarrett introduced us to his creative process, passion for creating and taught our daughters how to paint. It was inspiring.

His career has really taken off. At the 22nd annual Children’s Illustration Show in 2011, Jarrett told us about new books and movie versions of his books starring Amy Poehler. And, today, he showed up in Mark’s TED Talks subscription in iTunes.

Jarrett’s talk is loaded with passion. It highlights the importance of imagination and creativity in life and surrounding yourself with people who help you pursue your imagination your way.

2. Rebel Pigeon: Scott Fischer draws ‘The Pigeon’ his way

Last year we attended the 22nd Annual Children’s Illustration Exhibit party at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, Massachusetts. We had been to the 19th annual event three years earlier as part of our Rock Stars of Reading road trip.

Mark shot some video at the event and had planned to edit and release it shortly after our return. Unfortunately, that coincided with news that his uncle had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A lot of personal projects were shelved.

The 23rd Annual Children’s Illustration Exhibit reception is taking place today. Unfortunately, we are unable to be there this time. We’re disappointed we won’t be able to spend time with our author and illustrator friends. Besides being incredibly creative and talented, they’re amazingly nice people, too.

Instead of attending this year’s event, Mark is finally getting around to editing the video he shot. This clip features illustrator Scott Fischer playing with Don’t Let the Pigeon Run This App on Mark’s iPhone.

4. Our future depends on children’s books

Much of what we become is shaped by the ideas we’re exposed to and the relationships of which we are a part. The stronger those foundations are from childhood, the better equipped we are to understand the people with whom we interact and the world around us. Childrens books are the tools that help us open the door to a childs natural curiosity, creativity and desire to connect, and are one of our strongest hopes for a great future.

It’s not entirely surprising we never published this video, here, given we did have our mind on other things at the time. We prepared a talk Mark delivered at TEDxOttawa on December 6, 2009. Here it is.

5. Repairs nearly complete

We’ve received a lot of email over the last few months about our long neglected website and podcast. Among other things, the audio files would no longer play. It turns out that was one of many other bigger problems with the site. It’s taken some time and there’s still more work to be done, however, I’m happy to report the site, audio files and feed are back in working order.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll continue to repair the site, add comments that were trapped in moderation limbo and fix an array of bizarre characters that appear in the posts and comments.

I’d be grateful if you could alert us to any problems you find with the site — things such as broken links, missing photos, bizarre characters, etc… Please leave a comment on this post (since you’re already here) and I’ll add it to the list and keep you posted.

Thanks, again, for your continued enthusiasm for our site and amazing children’s books. Some new video content is on its way.

6. Selected chapter books we’ve read in the last year

After a 14-month hiatus, we dust off Just One More Book to participate in the Canadian National Day of Podcasting, a virtual event intended to bring stale shows out of retirement for one-day in a festival-like reunion of online content creators.

In this episode, we highlight some of the chapter books we’ve read since parking JOMB last year.

9. Back in the Saddle

If Briefly.

December 1, 2010 has been designated as Canadian National Day of Dusting Off Old Podcasts.

JustOneMoreBook.com has been sitting dormant for 14 months now.

I miss it. Mark misses it. Lucy and Bayla miss it.

So, although we were completely unprepared and the audio itself is nothing to be proud of, it was huge fun to dust off that audio equipment, drink some delicious coffee in our cozy Wild Oat home, and chirp some off-the-cuff praise for a few children’s books.

Stay tuned for audio, December 1, 2010.

12. Thank you, Eva Ibbotson

We were saddened to learn about the death of incredible author Eva Ibbotson. We are dedicated fans of her books. In fact, her name comes up in our home almost daily.

As a result of Just One More Book!!, we had the privilege of interviewing Ms. Ibboton on her 83rd birthday on January 21, 2008. It was an early morning affair (5amET) in order to account for the time change and turned out to be the kind of interview that refused to be edited. So, it was released as it was later that day.

We had the good fortune of corresponding with Ms. Ibbotson a few times since the interview, and she left a voice mail message for Andrea wishing her a quick return to good health following her breast cancer diagnosis last year.

In honour of Ms. Ibbotson, we have decided to republish her interview. We’ve also made a transcript of the interview available.

Thank you for a library of fantastic books. We will always enjoy them.

19. Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year … and many more to follow

surgery2As surreal as it continues to be, we are making our way through this unexpected Breast Cancer Journey thanks to the support, good wishes and strong positive vibes of our generous friends, family and online/offline community.

Chemo is now underway and I believe Andrea is on the upswing of the first round. It’s an odd Christmas but we’re working towards many happy Christmas seasons to come.

We miss JOMB, the stories, authors, illustrators, listeners, the conversations. If you’d like to keep in touch, we’ve set up a Flickr photo journal here where you can check in on our progress and even leave us your thoughts.

Wishing each of you a very happy holiday season and a happy, healthy 2010 full of love, warmth and great memories.

Be well and be happy,
Andrea, Mark, Lucy and Bayla

20. We Can Rebuild Her: A breast cancer journal

We’ve launched the website WeCanRebuildHer.com to document our journey to making Andrea a breast cancer survivor. The site will feature our views as the patient and supporter and carries the tagline Better than she was before… better, stronger, happier — A Breast Cancer Journal.

Besides being therapeutic for us, we hope the site proves to be a valuable resource for others who are affected by cancer.

Our first post is now live. It features audio from Andrea’s head shaving party which took place at our place on Sunday night. Twenty of our friends joined us for munchies, drinks, cake and to show support as we shaved Andrea’s head. We plan to post some video today or tomorrow.

Watch for us to blog and podcast our road-to-survivorship experiences and thoughts regularly at WeCanRebuildHer.com.

21. Contested Irrelevance (a JOLT! by Andrea)

Wow! The last nine months have been surreal. Andrea has been nothing short of inspiring as she braved three surgeries, six rounds of chemotherapy and six weeks of radiation therapy (30 treatments in all). Through it all, we’ve been blown away by the concern and generosity of our online communities, particularly the people that we came to know and whom we apparently touched through Just One More Book.

Andrea harnessed that energy and generosity and turned it into a stunning five-minute lightning talk (called a JOLT!) at the recent PAB2010 conference. Her powerful and sincere presentation commanded a standing ovation which turned into a line of people waiting to give her a hug. There was nary a dry eye in the room.

Thank you to everyone in the JOMB community. You had a huge impact on our family. But don’t take my word for it. Watch the video to find out.
