This swap is for our young artists and authors. Tell them to bring their imagination to life. Each child will draw, paint, color (or any other medium they want) a collection of pictures that they would send to their swap partner. Then their partner will write a story to go with the pictures they received and make a book out of them. When they are done with the book they will send it back to the partner who made the pictures.

It would be great if each child also sent a picture and a "about the artist" page to their partner and the child who is writing the story also do an "about the author" page with a picture and include them in the back of the book.

I am giving a few weeks so the kids have plenty of time to decide on their pictures and get them done. It would be nice if the authors have their parts of the books done and mailed back no later then November 30th.

Shipping should not be too much for these so I will leave this open for international participation. Also you should have no 3's or 1's lately. This swap is for children and we do not want their feelings hurt because something does not get sent to them as it was promised.

Feel free to PM me with any questions or suggestions.
