Flagler Beach, FL - "A Grandmother's Wish" by Grandma Max is a collaboration between 75-year-old author Maxine Kronick of Flagler Beach and animator David Lawter of Asheville, North Carolina.
Illustrated by young artists from schools and art gallery workshops in the Central Florida area, the book comes to life in the accompanying DVD. Geared toward children ages three and over and their grandparents, the book elicits a positive, calming meaningful experience, while acknowledging that we live in a tumultuous world. It educates children about the many threats to our environment and encourages dialogue, while the animation entertains.
A portion of the proceeds from this project will enhance art programs for underprivileged children, participating schools and art galleries.
The book is available at Chez Jacqueline in Palm Coast and Down by the Sea in Flagler Beach.
"Miss Max" is a volunteer assistant in the theater department at Buddy Taylor Middle School.
