Book Winner – Kudos – Cover Reveal – Chance to Win – Industry Changes

BOOK WINNER: Susan Uhlig won Priscilla Burris new book HELLO SCHOOL. Susan please send your address.

Congratulations to Amalia Hofman for signing a new nonfiction picture book contract, THE BRAVE CYCLIST. It will be published by Capstone Publishing in 2019.

Here is a sneak peek at the cover reveal for Sherry Howard and Anika A. Wolf’s sublimely fun and meaningful book Rock and Roll Woods. Both the author and illustrator did great work together to make this book sing in terms of language (with great rhythm) and story, and art. Besides being a beautiful and fun book, it also has deeper levels of resonance for kids on the autism spectrum including insider jokes for parents and teachers of kids with this disorder. With 1 in 59 kids dealing with autism, we hope that all kids get to see, learn from, and enjoy this book, especially kids on the spectrum.

Want a chance to win Signed copy of THE LAST CHERRY BLOSSOM, TLCB Swag Package,Cherry Blossom origami paper (and if a teacher or librarian wins, Kathleen will also do a 50 minute Skype visit). Here is the Link:
