If Animals Went to School by Ann Whitford Paul
New Release!

If Animals Gave Thanks

This bestselling story imagines how animals might show their gratitude!

If animals gave thanks, Crow would caw-caw for the great bowl of sky. Raccoon would chir-chirrrr thanks for her cub. Skunk would hiss-hiss for her stinky spray. And Bear would thank his friends with a bountiful feast. This delightful rhymed book will inspire you to think of what makes you thankful.

Nothing pleases me more than sharing my love of reading. The special times I spent reading with my children—cuddled close, delighting in the poetic prose, and discovering secrets in the illustrations—inspired me to write children’s books for other families and children to enjoy.

Writing is rarely easy. Even though I’m published I still struggle to get the plot right, to create endearing characters and find the perfect words. If you, too struggle, perhaps it’s time to take a break and learn something new.

Here are some resources to help you on your writing adventures. Don’t forget to check out Writing Picture Books: A Hands-On Guide From Story Creation to Publication!
