I've been writing children's picture books for over seven years.I have ten titles either published by Oak Tree Press or self-published. I hold a MA degree from UCLA and taught high school English for a number of years in Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay area.
I am also a fiber artist. I do baskets, book arts and sculpture forms using mainly paper. I am also a photographer and use many of my photographs in my art pieces. My art website is www.berylreichebergart.com. My pieces are at the Gallery at the Network in San Luis Obispo and occasionally at the SLO Museum of Art.
Clowning Around is a children's picture book for kids 3 to 8. Published by Oak Tree Press, it is now available on their website, www.oaktreebooks.com. The book is about Charlie, a clownfish, who likes to do tricks for the kids who come to the aquarium. When the other fish become jealous, they devise a plan to keep him from getting all the attention which backfires. This book is about jealousy, cooperation and working together.
“Camouflage” is about how animals protect and hide themselves in the wild. It’s an interactive book, so the reader may see if they can spot the animal amid the forest or leaves. Gini Griffin, longtime artist in San Luis Obispo, collaborated with Beryl Reichenberg on this book, drawing the fun animals.
