This first one is "The Story of Keith Kurak", which happens to be my husband. I was playing around with picture book biographies a bit because I absolutely love them and they have absolutely captivated me many times. Anyone read Mo Willems "Because"? This is the type of book I am talking about here. Or has anyone read "Star Stuff" by Stephanie Roth Sisson, a biography about Carl Sagan. If you haven't read either of these, you probably should. And this is the light that I wrote this next bit.
The Story of Keith Kurak
by Kiera Kurak
There was a little boy named Keith.
Keith liked to play with cars and blocks. In it he could pretend he was in his own world.
As Keith grew he would enter in his own world in other ways.
With his friends, he built forts in the common woods behind his house.
He would often find himself lost inside video game.
He loved everything about the worlds that he would enter into in these places.
It always let his imagination soar.
Someday he knew he’d like to create something on a computer for someone.
As Keith got older he studied computer science.
He programmed computers for an industrial company for a while, but it wasn’t what he really enjoyed.
One day a friend asked him if he would like to make a mobile application with his company.
He said yes.
Now Keith makes a mobile apps to help people, and still enjoys a good round in the imaginary world of computer games.
Especially when he gets to play games with his kids, and help their imaginations soar too.
Perhaps I will upgrade this someday with little drawing photos, but here it is for now, keeping me honest.
