PJ Library

I got a nice surprise over the weekend. I found out that a book I illustrated, Picnic at Camp Shalom, which was published last year by Kar-Ben Publishing, has been selected by The PJ Library as one of their 2012 selections! They have done a special publishing of the book and it will be mailed to all their 6 year-old participants this summer.

The PJ Library is an award-winning program, funded by local philanthropists and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. The PJ Library sends out high-quality Jewish children's books and music to families across North America on a monthly basis....for free! You can find out more about The PJ Library here.

Below is one of my favorite spreads from the book with Sara and Carly finding out how much they have in common on their first night at summer camp. The PBJunkies did an interview last year with the author, Jacqueline Jules, which you can read here.

Happy camping!

Add you should also be proud that PJ Library in Palm Beach, implemented by the Commission for Jewish Education, has worked with our local JCC Camp Shalom to use the book as part of its programming with campers :)
