Laura D'Argo and Greg Leifel share a love of the natural world, quality literature, and beautiful art. Combining all three, Lovable Children's Books was founded. Our vision is to create books your child will cradle in their arms, print their name inside, and keep to treasure and pass on to their children for generations to come. The treasures Laura and I have found in visual art and in the written word have changed our lives. That inspiration is reflected in what we write about and how we illustrate our books. Lovable Children's Books will help your child claim their unique world.
About Laura D'Argo
It was there in my little desk chair in the second grade classroom with construction paper in one hand and a glue bottle in the other when I overheard them talking - my teacher and my Mother. The teacher was speaking of my talent, telling my Mom of people who painted greeting cards and illustrated for a living. I told my heart, "I can get paid to play, to create art!" So at the age of seven I found my true love, a passion for a career in art. That passion has grown and enriched every area of my life. Working with Greg on Lovable Children's Books has given that love a chance to share a childlike wonder of seeing things in a different light.
About Gregory Leifel
I grew up in a magical place called, Trout Valley. It was an area filled with deep woods, natural spring-fed trout ponds, and enough room for a young boy's imagination to run wild. Many days, I'd bring a book, lean up against a tree and travel to other worlds via literature or write my own stories. At age ten, I began to work for a neighbor, Mr. Hank Katz, doing yard work. He was an artist, an illustrator, a writer. He inspired me to continue writing, dreaming, and playing. When Laura drew a cover illustration for my story about a determined Ant, my imagination found a kindred muse, and my children's stories, a colorful home.
