Sneak Peek: Cool Stuff!

Heya Kiddos!

Miss Melanie has been a busy bee and she has been making some neat things to help promote my book!

Firstly, she has come up with something called Little Water Heroes, a water fan club of sorts that encourages kids to make the right choices to help conserve water! It's still a new thing, and it is a bit of a surprise for the author, Mr H., who may or may not have caught on by now... hee hee! He'll be sure to find out soon enough, when she visits the class in June! (Or if he's reading about it now? SURPRISE!!!!)

Melanie has also designed bookmarks and neat buttons to promote Little Water Heroes and ME, Little Raindrop! It's a great idea to get kids excited about preserving, protecting, and promoting clean water!

She sent me a few snapshots of her projects, and she's been sharing them on Twitter, too!

I wonder what else that clever artist has up her sleeve?! We'll just have to wait and see! Until then, take the Little Water Hero pledge, and become a Little Water Hero!

See ya 'round the water cycle!

Updated Cover Art!


You've seen a sample of the cover art before, but here's what it looks like now!

You might have heard that our book dummy has grown to be a whole TWO chapters now! I am getting advice from friends and family, artists and writers, parents and teachers, and even kids on what they think of the book so far. 

Mr. H brought the book dummy to his classroom of third graders (we call them The Pro's) today, and he is videotaping their reactions to the book! He will be sending me the DVD by the end of the week, and I can't WAIT to hear what everyone has to say about Little Raindrop's story so far! I'm super excited!!!

I also have some GOOD NEWS to share with you, and a SURPRISE, too! But I'm not quite ready to tell you just yet... well, I am, but I'm not about to ruin the surprise!

I'll be back to let you know how The Pro's like the book!

Don't let the the sprinkler run for too long!
