Oozing with Talent!

My husband always lovingly emails me 'Links' that he thinks would be of interest for my blog... well, he hit the jackpot on this one!
Illustrator Christoph Niemann's posts for the NY Times are brilliant. They're beautifully minimal, funny, and if your kids are really young he'll have you rolling with his post from September called, "Good Night and Tough Luck".
I was first drawn to his ingenious children's book, "The Pet Dragon", which teaches Chinese to young children, since my 11 year old is taking Chinese (1st time offered to 6th graders) in middle school.

His post about his personal history with 'Coffee' is so clever it made me want to write my own personal experience from my first taste of Schraft's coffee ice cream at my grandmothers summer house, to watching my kids scrunched up faces as they sip it in milk...
