Despite being only 8, Skylar Dharma Schmitt has already published a book and is pledging to donate 50% proceeds of the sale to her Maple Village Waldorf School. Her innovative book, "Imagination Land" is the result of the endless imagination of a child, and the skill of an artist, Nicole Ichtertz.
One of the readers, Michelle Wilde says, “The illustrations have so many special little magical details that your eyes delight in following around the page. I loved sitting with my 5 year old son and exploring each image with excitement about the truly imaginative, surprising, and sweet things we would find. The colors are so vibrant and beautiful---and perfectly soothing- there is a harmony that is transmitted, by the designs and masterful placement of colors in a way that I have never experienced by looking at a children's book before.”
She further adds, “It is a book for all ages though for sure. It is warm, gently humorous, and our new favorite treasure. We can't wait for Ms. Ichterz to create her next book!”
Skylar is a local of Long Beach, California. She is a 3rd grade student. After publishing this first book she set a goal to publish one book each year.
The book is available on Amazon.com and is open for bulk orders and individual orders. For bulk orders, please call at 562 884 0062.
