2014 Gold Winner in Children’s Picture Books
Early Bird gets the Worm
A new twist to Childrens’s Book Publishing – I was commissioned by Bruce Lansky of Meadowbrook Press to create a series of three wordless picture books – an unusual concept, but one that allows very young readers to create their own narrative while looking at the pictures – The images were constructed rather like a comic strip, each page moves the story on one step at the time in a simple logical way, so the young reader stays engaged with the simple plot.
Three titles were created: Early Bird Gets the Worm. Polar Brrr’s Big Adventure. Monkey See, Monkey Do. They are all available as ebooks and hardcover editions.
Early Birdy Gets the Worm has been named a 2014 GOLD winner in Children’s Picture Books from the Mom’s Choice Awards and a SILVER winner in the Education category of the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Parenting Resources competition.
