Hello! I am Betsy Wallin, author and illustrator of My First Farm Friends (Storey Publishing, 2011). I am honored that the black and white drawings for the books are going to be used for the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR coloring contest. It will be so fun to see my farm scenes come alive with new color combinations!
My First Farm Friends is a celebration of farm life. When drawing for the book set, many things went through my mind. Sometimes I imagined myself as one of the chickens, pigs, cows and goats! At other times I was reminded of the little child I once was on my grandfather’s farm. More than anything, my drawings reflect my love of animals and the joys of caring for them. I hope children will have a wonderful time coloring and exploring every detail!
Have a great time, and good luck with the coloring!
