Natural Resources: Intro & Chapter One

Explore Natural Resources! 
Title Page

This new book is turning out to be a lot of fun. My main character, a little holstein calf, has really blossomed while working on the first few chapters. 

Chapter One: Amazing Air

His friends have also come out of the woodwork and everything is really coming together. 

Introduction to Natural Resources

I do have to put out a special shout-out to Grandma and Grandpa Lovercheck (my husband's parents) for coming through with lots of babysitting time. Emmy also has a new babysitter who has been coming over once a week so mommy can have a few hours of uninterrupted work time. Without this extra help I'm not sure how I would ever make a deadline... or keep my sanity!

So enjoy this little sneak peak of The Introduction and Chapter One of Explore Natural Resources! There will be much more to follow...!

Life with and without an atmosphere! 

Comparing the amount of Natural Resources used millions of years ago to a more recent time. 

Deforestation

Learning the importance of recycling! 

Non-renewable vs. renewable resources

Though I do have help with little Emmy there is plenty of time when it's just us girls in the studio. She loves being in her fancy play yard working on her own "personal project."

Not sure if I'll be able to contain this girl for much longer... 


Wish me luck...!

adorable artwork. soon you can give Emmy her own art desk and materials, assuming she is done with the putting stuff in mouth phase. :-)

Haha! Thanks Darshana... very true! Currently she enjoys shoving the play yard to the side and chewing on the mat. Must be an acquired taste ;-)
