Nate Hausmann
ABC Animals

Sunday, November 2, 2pm

Nate Hausmann, an autistic entrepreneur, began drawing during elementary school. In middle school, he began his tradition of illustrating one-of-a-kind personalized animal alphabet books as baby gifts for family and friends. After high school graduation in Baton Rouge, he illustrated this English/Hebrew animal alphabet book with its whimsically endearing color-pencil-drawn animals, set in charming watercolor habitats. From left to right, young book lovers discover their favorite animals from A to Z. And from right to left, they rediscover those animals from aleph to tav! Foreword by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.
