Here’s the most important question of the day: have you heard of Dallas Clayton? If so, bravo. If not, I am so honored to be the one to tell you about him.
Saying he’s a children’s book author just doesn’t sound like enough of an explanation of what he does. Yes, he writes. Yes, he draws. Yes, he rhymes. But he’s also able to influence your entire day/week/month/year with his positive and colorful outlooks on life.
His artwork may or may not be plastered around our office (okay, it may). And I’m not ashamed to admit that I am the one who periodically changes the Dallas Clayton poster in the girls bathroom (some days you just want inspiration everywhere.)
He has published three books:
And has traveled around the world sharing them with people of all ages:
As if all of that wasn’t enough, he is now helping the next generation of dreamers to invest in good nutrition. He’s teaming up with Future Fortified to explain the important link between creativity, education and nutrition. Oh he would. He’s just caring & awesome:
I’ll leave you with this thought: the world needs more people who infuse colorful perspective into daily life. More people who remind us what life looks like through the eyes of a child. More people like Dallas Clayton.
And yes, I should start a fan club.
