Children's Books Sneak Preview Coming Soon February 18, 2020 / 2 brothers living over the water in the jungle discover the life that lives all around them. They went up hills and down hills carrying the leaves, into the jungle so thick and green. They were the busiest ants they had ever seen. Sheryl Bearman I am an adventurous author/illustration who lives off the grid, on a Caribbean island, in the rain forest. Living in this remote location, which is only accessible by boat, offers me a unique perspective and provides an abundance of inspiration. I have an incredible opportunity to discover new and diverse people, customs and traditions. As well as intriguing local indigenous communities, and spectacular island and mountain vistas. This wonderful experience has truly changed my life and influences my writing and art every day. I have fond memories of reading time with my children. We curled up in bed or on the couch almost every night to read. Early on, we read numerous wonderful children’s picture books, and even years later, as young adults, they were quite advanced readers by then, I would catch a glimpse of my children rereading their old picture books. The power and pure joy of those early reading experiences and illustrations are quite remarkable. I hope my books stimulate children’s imagination and encourage a lifelong love for reading.
