Picture Book Resource for 9-11 Commenoration
As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9-11 I'd like to share a resource that would be useful to teachers and schools. Immediately after 9-11 I wrote a song for children celebrating our country entitled, "Red, White and Blue." I have spent five years creating the illustrations to turn it into a traditional picture book format, using fabric and making quilts: 16 quilts turns into a 32 page book!
The good news? Just last week my book received a national INDIE Award of Excellence. The bad news?? In that the book is self-published, the only folks who are aware of it are teachers I have met in my travels.
I am currently hosting a 'contest' to give away 11 signed copies of the book, in an effort to raise some visibility to the project. The book comes with a CD recording inside the back cover with both sung and instrumental versions. There is also a chart for sign language to support the book's performance and music notation with chords.
