Auction and blog tour coming

Last week I posted about the illustrated proverb I donated to the Small Grace's auction for the Foundation for Children's Books. This week it is officially for auction on ebay! 100% of the proceeds go to a great cause, bringing authors into under funded schools.

Read more about the project here.

On another note, next week is Earth Week and I plan to celebrate by doing a mini-blog tour to talk about What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? A Green Activity Book About Reuse. Join me on the following lovely kidlit blogs to find out more about the making of the book, read reviews, and win a prize too! Several of the blogs will be holding book giveaways, your chance to get a copy of the book to share with kiddos you know for free. What better way to celebrate Earth Day then to do some recycling art activities with kids? Well driving less and planting a tree are probably better, but not nearly as fun.

Here is the schedule:

Monday the 20th: *Miss Rumphius Effect
Tuesday the 21st: *Wild Rose Reader
Wednesday the 22nd: 7 Impossible Things Before Breakfast
Thursday the 23rd: *A Patchwork of Books
Friday the 24th: Katie's Literature Lounge

*These blogs are having book give aways!

Anna, I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am to have "won" the auction for your beautiful painting. I love reading about all you Blue Rose Girls, and met Grace many years ago so have liked following her career from afar -- well, western Mass.

When I first saw the painting I thought what a perfect gift for my best friend. But I think I have to keep it. At least for a while.

Thank you for the beauty you put in the world.

Hi Jeannine,

Thanks for writing, I'm so glad the painting is going to a happy home! And thank you for supporting the FCB!

All best,
