“Through the eyes of a child”… the ability to view something in is purest form; experience wonder and excitement; curiosity and awe.

A “do-it-yourself-er,” Melchiori is the self-published author and illustrator of The Adventures of Mimi the Artist, a book series aimed at children ages 3 to 9 that follows the adventures of Mimi and her friends, whose paper cutouts lie scattered on the desk: Butters the cat, Flutters the butterfly, Clover the dog, Little Brown Bear the bear, Rollie the rabbit and Indie the magical paintbrush. Each book offers a lesson about art. The first story — which spans three books, each 32 pages long — introduces the group and talks about primary and secondary colors. The second story is about beekeeping, which it uses to teach children about shapes.
