First book!

It is hard to describe the feeling of holding your book for the first time, after all the many weeks, months, and years spent bringing it into being. When a little package arrived on my doorstep last week, I was excited to open it, but also nervous that it might not live up to my expectations. Would all the pieces that we had labored over for so long come together and create a solid little vessel for the story inside? When I opened up Sprout Street and flipped through the pages my heart leapt up. All the details blended seamlessly together to form one little book, five little stories, one hundred and four little pages. 

My favorite details, both surprises, are the sweet little embossed sprouts on the cover and the marvelous full color printed endpapers.

I am so excited to share this book with the world!

YAY! Huge congrats, friend! Can't wait to get our autographed copy and start reading to Soleil (and for her to start reading it, herself, too, in a few years!) Sending love on your big achievement! Love Tobin and Family
