As a writer and artist, I'm very interested in submitting my newest picture book to the world communities who maintain a Christian life and support reading to their young children. I hope to reach this community by finding and submitting this publication to entities who will enjoy the rewards of partnerships and publication. I wish to allow parents of young children in many countries to read, discuss and question the very first document in the Bible, Genesis. Through my book, children will have better retention using my adapted words with auditory and visual integration for better comprehension of the first seven days of Earth.
