Twiga the giraffe: two printable coloring pages for young children


Twiga activity

A grandma bought “A Whistle in the Wind” for her grandchildren. Their mom sent this picture and gave me permission to share it with you.. Isn’t it great?

A note to Shelby (age 7) and Tori (age 5): Nice work, girls! I don’t know you, but thank your mom for sending this picture of your coloring (and your grandma for giving you the book.). Your pictures brought much joy to me today. I like how you got creative with all those stickers, and that Tori gifted her artwork to your cousin Caleb.

Parents of young children: Click on the link below for two printable coloring pages prepared by artist Ann. If you have the book, your children can trace the other animals and make their own coloring pages.

Excited about our children’s picture book

August came and went before I realized I had not written anything for my blog. Being an author is not just about writing a book, it also involves publishing and marketing of them which is not my forte.

That being said, before September gets away from me, I am posting one of Ann’s beautiful illustrations from our soon-to-be published children’s picture book. We have enjoyed working together on this project.

Next month’s blog post is cover reveal and a story description.
