I’ve known for several months, but didn’t want to make an announcement until I could actually hold the magazine in my hands. Well, guess what arrived in the mail?
The February 2021 issue of BABYBUG magazine … with a four page spread of my poem! AND it is illustrated by the talented Jaimie MacGibbon (jaimiemacgibbon.com & @jaimieillustrates). I can’t tell you how amazing it is to have MY words paired with such beautiful pictures. A dream come true for sure.
BABYBUG is one of Cricket Media’s award winning magazines and is comprised of read aloud stories for babies and toddlers.
I don’t want to give away the finished product, but here’s a little sneak peak from the top of the first page:
Don’t you LOVE that dog illustration? I can’t stop smiling.
This week I popped into a local public library that has a subscription to BABYBUG in their children’s magazine section. Pretty cool to see the February issue on display with so many other awesome children’s magazines!
Excellent post. We love your story. Your parents are proud!
