FC: On The Day BeforeTomorrow, Shhh! It's Time To Take A Nap. D J Stevens
1: On The Day Before Tomorrow, Shhh! It's Time To Take A Nap. "In the middle of the day all of the animals in the jungle stop what they are doing and settle down to take a nap." Using illustrations from murals painted for children by artists, Carol Mecum, Caren Clisset and Bambi Park, D J Stevens creates a story of parental love and protection spun like a lullaby and sure to lull your toddler off to sleep. This family of artists has been painting children's murals for many years and the resulting photographs are what lead DJ to create several stories for children. The three sisters and Carol's daughter, Bambi all live in Florida, near Tampa, and have owned and operated their mural business, Art Inherited, since 1990. Much of their work can be seen in high end residential homes, but the painting of children's room murals has always been a favorite.
