I am excited to share the artwork that will accompany BRUCE COVILLE's poem, RIPPLE!

Pubbing Fall 2012 from Kane Miller Books, Dare to Dream … Change the World pairs biographical and inspirational poems focusing on people who invented something, stood for something, said something, who defied the naysayers and not only changed their own lives, but the lives of people all over the world.

The poets included were chosen not only for their talent, but because they too have informed, inspired and engaged young people throughout their careers with both their actions and their words.

I was thrilled to work with 30 top American children’s poets including:
