QUINCY, Mass. Â- Geek may be the new chic but weird is the new wonderful.In her new childrenÂ’s book, Vanilla Gorilla: Animal Art & Poems, Judith Krimski celebrates the animal kingdomÂ’s most curious creations. Through the stories of these unique animals, Krimski hopes to spread the message of self-acceptance to discouraged youth.»I recall the first time I felt the passion for art and creativity,» Krimski says. «I was in kindergarten, and I distinctly remember the elation of creating something beautiful out of paste and construction paper.»It was one of the happiest moments of my life and I hope the book inspires that creativity in children.»The book covers a variety of the animal kingdomÂ’s most mysterious members, from the aye-aye and fanaloka to the mandrill. Each animal comes complete with vibrant illustrations and engaging poems that will inspire childrenÂ’s imaginations while also expanding their vocabulary.»The poems are meant inspire curiosity about the animal world and get kids excited about learning new words.» Krimski says. «I hope theyÂ’ll see that being different and unique is what makes every one of us special.»Praise for Vanilla Gorilla: «With the multitude of children’s books published every year, it is often difficult for a new book to stand out, especially one that doesn’t feature licensed characters from television or other media. Vanilla Gorilla: Animal Art & Poems does stand out because it’s that good.» Five star review from ForeWord Reviews more information, visit Gorilla: Animal Arts & Poems
