Calling All Kids!!!

With summer coming to a close, Shine Your Light Books is here with a project to inspire kids to get creative as they make the transition back to school. WE'RE LETTING KIDS ILLUSTRATE OUR NEXT BOOK!

Our latest project is a children's book written by 13 year-old Tommy Pugh. Tommy's book uses simple statements that illustrate how turning a negative thought into a positive one can be empowering. Tommy's vision is to have kids of all ages send in their artwork to accompany his affirming phrases.

We will email you all the details you need to take part in this amazing collaboration for kids, by kids. And be sure to share this opportunity with your fellow artists!
