IF - welcome


For Illustration Friday this week, from my upcoming picture book, Theodore the Tree which is now available for pre-orders on Amazon and will be in stores Oct.1.

I thought this was a good page for the theme of welcome - Welcome to the new baby and Welcome to the new star ornament. The family gets a new ornament for their tree every year. It's a sweet story with a message, perfect for the holidays.
