This is the second year of this awesome contest. I was on the committee that sponsored it last and part of this year and it is for a great cause: to give free good-quality children’s books to children ages 0-5 yrs, kids that may not have many books of their own. And every child deserves to have some books of their own. Southwest Human Development is a great resource for the community in regards to early childhood literacy, child development and child welfare. Last year’s winner was a local female author and former school librarian named Phoebe Fox and her book Up Up Up just recently got published. To buy a copy, please click here. I know it’s near the end of the contest, but please submit something and who knows, you might get published and win the contest! If you don’t want to write a children’s picture book but still want to help out with Children’s Literacy, become a Champion. See their website for more info!
