Rep. Jim Lilly of Park Township this week hosted a children’s book author and illustrator at the Michigan House – recognizing ‘March is Reading Month.’
Lilly introduced the special guest – Aaron Zenz of Spring Lake. Zenz has authored several books including The Hiccupotamus, Monsters Go Night-Night, and many more.
Lilly made the introduction along with Rep. Lori Stone.
“Aaron loves the art of storytelling, and he pairs it with his talent as an artist very well,” Lilly said. “Aaron’s books are brought to life with vivid, whimsical imagery. They are humorous and engaging, capturing the attention of young readers. Aaron works with other authors as well to bring their stories to life with illustrations. He also utilizes multimedia platforms to bring literature to life through animation and podcasts.
“Not only does Aaron create children’s literature, he is a fan who has collected over 3,500 children’s literature titles. It’s only fitting that we express our appreciation for him, and there is no better time to do so than during March is Reading Month.”
Rep. Jim Lilly this week supported a revised version of the Michigan Cannabis Safety Act, a plan that would continue to allow caregivers to serve up to five patients without a license from their primary residence.
The Michigan House today overwhelmingly gave final legislative approval to Rep. Jim Lilly’s bipartisan plan making personal protective equipment and disinfecting products more affordable during the COVID-19 pandemic.
