Fun children's picture books that kids enjoy, help parents, and are from a fresh, modern perspective
My daughter loves to color in and since spending more time at home, it is something I have encouraged (it also means less screen time). I did some research and yes, there seems to be
5 main benefits for kids when they participate in coloring.
Inspired my daughter and her love for all things unicorns, mermaids, and rainbows and the benefits of coloring, I decided to unleash my own creativity and create (with the help of a talented illustrator) a lovely coloring book containing 50 beautifully hand drawn images from easy to expert. Unicorns, Rainbows, Mermaids and More was made available on Amazon this week and I am thrilled to share this with you.
So if your child enjoys coloring then there are definitely some benefits in doing so and if you do end up checking out my new coloring book then I really hope you enjoy it.
If there are any other coloring topics/themes your child is interested in, please leave a comment below.
With Potty Time for Girls largely complete, it is time to turn my attention to Potty Time for Boys. The story, specifically for boys starting potty training, is written, reviewed and now it is time to illustrate. This is when the fun begins...
I found this blog post today about the best books for potty training for kids and to my surprise "Come Out Mr Poo!" was one of them. Thanks Hip2Poop
It's been a little while but my next book is almost complete. Given some feedback that "Come Out Mr Poo!" looks like it is only for boys, I have decided to dedicate a potty book to girls and one to boys. Potty Time for Girls is the perfect potty training companion for little girls getting ready to use the potty. Potty Time for Boys is currently being illustrated and will also be available soon. Stay Tuned.
Thank you to my Canadian readers for helping me receive my first #1 Best Seller in 3 different categories. I am so humbled and grateful. Something I never dreamed of.
A big thank you for all the support as Come Out Mr Poo! has made the top 10, actually No. 2, in the Amazon Best Sellers list for Children's Toilet Training books.
My name is Janelle and I'm a full-time working mum of 2 and an indie children's picture book author. I love writing picture books that are fun for kids, help parents and bring a modern perspective. Books that can be experienced by both boys and girls. I am also learning how to better write, self-publish and promote what I do. So if you've ever had an interest in writing children's picture books, join me on my journey.
