I’ve been hinting at a project I was working on and giving you sneak peeks, and I am now ready to share the big news. I’m participating in the 5th Annual ABC’s Children’s Picture Book Competition this year! I have been paired up with Sheila O. Lindsay to illustrate a picture for her delightful poem entitled Dandelion Snow. In this sweet tale, three little girls all dressed for Sunday School decide to have a little race before church. The three girls stir up dandelion snow as they race back and forth in their backyard, smudging their faces and dresses, before being discovered by Mama.
The stories will be put to an internet vote September 20th through October 4th, and everyone is allowed to vote once daily for the two week period. The book with the most votes will receive a publishing contract for their winning entry! So, mark your calendars, spread the word, tell your friends, family and people you meet on the street!
