Nancy wanted her Guess What books to have more than just stock photography. Drawing the pictures herself was not her first choice either. Using a professional illustrator was missing something too.
Finally, she asked herself, "Who better to illustrate a children's book than children?" That was exactly the perfect fit she was looking for. Not only would each book have something special but it would give children an opportunity to explore possibilities in their own lives.
Each book features artwork from kids around the world. The selection process is done through an art contest. Unfortunately, only thirteen illustrations are necessary for each book but every child who enters deserves special recognition. The image to the right is a collage of just a few of the illustrations from the first three books. As you can see, creativity and talent comes in all forms. Each young illustrator has their own uniqueness.
