Believing in play and pretend
Follestad believes play and pretend plays an important role in the mental, emotional and physical development of children. The activity helps them expand their imagination, enrich their skills, practice artistry, and pursue creativity. Most of all, play and pretend helps them to dream and envision the world they want to live or help build.
Art and storytelling
Catherine loves art and storytelling in many forms, and she wants to share her gifts in many ways. She desires to create stories, books and other media that will captivate children and adults alike for generations.
Being a dedicated children’s writer, Catherine is well-immersed in her craft and genre. She writes in a classic style, which she believes is never dated. She reflects on the beauty of life whenever she writes or paints, this allows her to bring the value of nature into her work through experinces in and appreciation of her sourroundings. For her, nature is full of inspiration for creation.
