Chris Reads Picky Nicky the Nutrition Decision to Kids in 1st Grade.

Picky eaters are young children that, for one reason or another, refuse to eat the healthy meals that their parents prepare for them. Over the past year and a half, I have been researching and developing a children’s storybook to help kids become healthier eaters called Picky Nicky; You Are What You Eat: The Nutrition Decision. The Picky Nicky storybook embeds the lessons in the story so children can absorb them while being entertained. This guide presents the techniques that I researched and use with my four kids in a straight forward fashion for parents. Enjoy!

My name is Chris Silvestre I’m an Author, Animator and father of four. SilvestreArt.com is where I share my ideas about Family, Art, and Life! My story begins as the third of four children born to Portuguese immigrants way back in 1979. Since I can remember, I had a pencil and was drawing the things around me- usually making fun of them. I spent a lot of time in the back of classrooms drawing my classmates and teachers. I spent lot of nights and weekends drawing and studying Mad Magazine. I won a few art contests in elementary and middle school. In High School I went to Vocational School for Commercial Arts.
I graduated from Cartoon College (The Art Institute of Philadelphia Specializing in Animation) where I studied classic hand drawn animation as well as 3D animation. After graduation I began drawing caricatures at the local theme park. I moved on to draw and render graphics and animation for training software. During this time I animated personal projects sending them to anyone in the industry that I could. I landed my first full time job as an animator for iCaramba communications working on the first Latino Animated cartoon “La Familia” later renamed Lugar Heights.
To become a more well rounded artist, I always varied the industries I have worked in.
I have worked as Interactive Art Director in the Advertising Industry. I’ve also built and managed teams to develop training software for the medical device industry.
Now, I am working on my own apps, books and commission projects.
