Be a Maker

By Katey Howes
Illustrated by Elizabet Vukovic

Appealing, rhyming story that celebrates making in many forms.

How many things can you make in a day? A tower, a friend, a change? Rhyme, repetition, and a few seemingly straightforward questions engage young readers in a discussion about the many things we makeā€”and the ways we can make a difference in the world.

  • Simple rhyming text is accessible and perfect for a young picture-book audience
  • Empowers young readers to enact change and work for good
  • Will appeal to fans of books like The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

About the author

Katey is the author of picture books Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe and Grandmother Thorn.

About the illustrator

Elizabet Vukovic grew up around makers in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Her mom introduced her to making with fabrics. She and her sister accompanied their dad on many trips to the hardware store for his constant home renovation projects, and her sister continues to use Elizabet as her guinea pig for many outrageous inventions. Elizabet graduated with a degree in optometry before deciding to go back to school for illustration in San Francisco, where she currently resides.
