M is for Manure!
Our family was at the South Dakota State Fair last summer when my phone rang.
It was Michelle Weber Studio who was busy painting illustrations for our new children's book with Zoetis.
"Hey, Amanda! Any chance you could get a quick picture of your kids throwing some manure with a pitch fork?" she asked.
"Sure thing! I'll text you in five minutes," I said.
I handed Thorne the fork, and he happily obliged, tossing these wood chips in my direction to give us the perfect shot!
M is for Manure is one of my FAVORITE illustrations in the entire story, and I just love how Michelle uses color, movement, and fun to bring these children's books to life!
