Note from Lynne Dempsey
“I wanted to mention “COLORS!” received a new award. “COLORS!” is an Award-Winner in the Children’s Educational category of the 2016 International Book Awards. http://www.internationalbookawards.com/2016pressrelease.html A book written by Pope Francis won an award in the Children’s Picture Book: Hardcover Non-Fiction category. (I’m really thrilled about this award. 🙂 )
I attached images from three of my picture books.
Grandma wrapped in toilet paper is the “Take the Dog Out!” image.
The chase scene is a “Numbers!” image.
“The Colors!” images are a purple flowers scene and a picnic scene.
I also included a photo from last year. “A Take the Dog Out” mural was hung in the Strasburg-Heisler Library. Mandy Newham-Cobb, the illustrator, is on my left. That was a big day for both of us. 🙂 Director Kristin Fernitz (far right) and Youth Librarian JJ Landis (second from the right) are in the photo. Kristin gave me valuable guidance for the first “Take the Dog Out” picture book. During the creation of “Colors!,” Kristin and JJ both gave me wonderful input.”
