Our Children Can Soar Highlights


What a looooonnnngggg week. Today was the book signing for OUR CHILDREN CAN SOAR. There were seven artists who were available to sign books. What an amazing time! I don’t think I’ve ever been in a room with that much picturebook royalty at once. Each artist has such a distinct voice and is so very talented. I am in awe of every one and honored to be a part of such a tremendous project. Thanks BloomsburyUSA!

    I just checked out this book at barnes and noble and it is fantastic! I am so excited for you that you got to be a part of such a beautiful book and contribute a great illustration. You might not remember me, but we met at bloomsburry in March. I was part of the byu-idaho group. I do cut paper children’s art. Thanks for your help.
