What a wonderful idea! I'd love to enter your giveaway. If I was going to write a children's book, it would be a dog story.

OH MY GOSH!!! This is perfect. I was sitting in my college class one day and had the perfect idea for a childrens book! I don't want to give it away, but I'll give you a hint - the main character is an apple, and he's quite a suave fellow. ;) Lol! I might actually try out in this contest!!

If I were to write a children's book it would be about 2 yr. old Josh and his adventure in the back yard, his large yard that has a stream at the back that has lots of ducks and geese and frogs ,with lots of bugs and butterflies

Anonymous said...

I would write on whatever story my children had in mind. Knowing them, it would be an adventure into a weird and wonderful place.

Sheri said...

omg! what a great idea, i think i would give the kit to my 8 year old daughter and just see what she came up with and take it from there, she has a great art had, so this would be perfect for the fair entry also. thanks for the great giveaway, what a great idea!
