I started this project about 12 years ago and had a lot of little helpers. I want to thank the parents for the stories of their children that they let me publish and the children that so willingly made these beautiful drawings.
We all, the children, the parents, and I, had a truly great time together doing this project.
The first drawing was done by Brenner Stewart. (He was at that time 10 years old). “Brenner is the third of four boys. He is very athletic and social. He loves to play baseball. He is also a very good helper and he loves little children a lot. Brenner has a wonderful big contagious smile.”
