I am so grateful for your love, dear readers.

It is very endearing when readers send me photos featuring the book Curly Orli, or when they would like to take a picture with me. My heart still skips a bit when someone asks me for an autograph. My specials thanks go to Chinese community for supporting my project. I am so grateful for your love, dear readers. I really appreciate it. Truly yours, Lagoonca, Curly Orli’s mom.

Happy Passover! Create Your Own Clay Camel

Happy Passover to all our Jewish readers!

* Special for Jewish Independent Newspaper Passover Issue, March 2015. Special Thanks to J.I. Editor Synthia Ramsay.

How fast time flies. Passover is almost here again, and it’s time to prepare a new tutorial, I said to my 7-year-old daughter while getting out a magic box with colorful modeling clay.

At school, we are reading a lot about Passover right now, she said to me. When the Jewish people crossed the dessert, they had camels with them, who carried people and their belongings. Mom, can you teach me how to model a baby camel? Please, mom, can you?
