The Natasha’s Wood Foundation is looking for Canadian children and youth to submit illustrations to four children’s books. These picture books are written by Fay Maddison, founder of the Natasha’s Wood Foundation, especially with early readers and military families in mind. These inventive stories feature a magical forest, fairies, unicorns and dragons – a whole imaginative world just waiting for children and youth to bring it to life.
“Created, designed and written for those that love bedtime stories, magical lands and the joy of discovering new friends, these picture books will bring a message of hope, love and friendship to all,” says Fay. “We are inviting youth to influence the look, feel, and sound of learning from the world of Natasha's Wood.”
Canadian children up to the age of 18 will be invited to read the text for the children’s books at www.natashaswoodfoundation.com
and submit a copy of their illustrations online or by mail. Submissions will be accepted until September 1, 2019.
The Natasha’s Wood Foundation will donate all proceeds from sale of the picture books to arts, sports and education programs for the children of first responders, including the Support Our Troops Funds. These funds support children in military families in a variety of ways, including recreation programs that focus on bolstering children’s mental health and resiliency, and inclusive recreation programs for special needs families.
