Very excited to share the fantastic trailer created by Capstone Kids for HERE I AM written by Patti Kim and illustrated by Sonia Sanchez. HERE I AM is Sonia’s illustration debut in the US.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Newly arrived from their faraway homeland, a boy and his family enter into the lights, noise, and traffic of a busy American city. Walk in the boy’s shoes as he takes the first tentative steps toward discovering joy in his new world in this emotional, wordless picture book. (Capstone, August 2013)
Today is also the last day to enter the WE BELONG TOGETHER give away. Visit our facebook page for information on how to enter and win a copy of this sweet board book written and illustrated by Joyce Wan.
Normally I keep this blog focused on industry/work posts. But I can’t help but break this rule and share a very personal video with you all. In my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many talented artists. But there is one artist who continues to surprise and inspire me everyday….MY NIECE AMELIA!!!!
Seven-year-old Amelia, a kidney transplant recipient, was selected as the cover artist for the American Kidney Fund 2013 calendar. WE could not be prouder of her!
Thank you to all who voted for Amelia! You can also read her story at northjersey.com
Calendars should be for sale on the AMERICAN KIDNEY FUND website later this month. Please buy one and support this wonderful organization.
I hope Amelia’s video will inspire you too. As Amelia so wisely said “Anything is possible if you believe.”
