Beth - The imaginary friend who takes care of business :)

I was asked by an old blue sky bud (joseph lee) to join in on this great show taking place in April at 826LA, a non-profit that tutors kids and helps them write. It's going to be wonderful... I'll keep you posted on dates! These pieces will be on sale and proceeds will go to 826 and their kids. Below is part of the story written by one of the many talented kids there :)

My imaginary friend has light brown hair. She has brown eyes. 
Today she is wearing a yellow sweater. 
And she is wearing a black shirt and red shoes. 
And she is wearing lipstick.

 My imaginary friend always beats me at hide and go seek.

I met Beth at the park. It all started when I was playing in the swing. 
Until two bullies pushed me and got me hurt. Until an adult named Beth helped me. 
And she hit the two bullies. They got scared of her. 
And at the end Beth and I were best friends forever.

What a cute story! Many people assume that everyone can read, and awareness is the key. Fantastic work!
