Special guest at our school - Alexandra Boiger

Prospect Academy is happy to announce that on April 11 we will have a very special guest at our school- Alexandra Boiger, an amazing artist, illustrator and author of children's books. She will spend time with the children talking about their favorite subject: making a book!

Alexandra Boiger is an award- winning illustrator and children's book author. She was born in Germany and moved to the United States initially to work for DreamworksSKG. Her first illustrated picture book was While Mama had a Quick Little Chat by Amy Reichert. Alexandra began working on this book after she became a mom herself and took, what was supposed to be a temporary leave from DreamworksSKG to stay at home with her daughter Vanessa. She ended up becoming a full time illustrator instead. Vanessa is being raised trilingual (She speaks English, German and Italian to her parents). The family has also a special connection to Prospect Academy- Vanessa was attending Country Day Nursery, the predecessor of Prospect Academy. Alexandra and Vanessa are very excited to revisit the school again and meet our children.
