Coloring Contest!

Starting today and ending June 22nd, I am having a coloring contest for my picture book, Lemur Troops & Critter Groups. The contest is open to children 10 and under. All you have to do is download and print the PDF below. The first page has the directions and the second page is the one for your child to color. Nikki Shoemaker, the illustrator, was so kind to give me a black & white copy of one of the illustrations from the book. I believe she'll be having a contest too, so hopefully between us, we can get lots of kids to participate. Kids can use crayons, markers, paint -- whatever they like!

For my contest, I will choose one winner for a special prize. I would also like to include some of the artwork on my blog, either as stills or a slideshow. As an incentive, every child who enters will be put into another drawing for a chance to win a copy of the second book in the Critter Series -- Stork Musters & Critter Clusters. All you have to do is scan your child's picture and email it back to me. If for some reason you can't scan it, please contact me for a way to mail it in. Complete contest details are on the file below. Thanks in advance and I hope your children enter and have fun!


  1. I've printed a few out for my kiddies!! Great idea for a contest, Rena!

  2. What a cool idea! I'm pretty sure my daughter will want to enter :)

  3. I can't believe I don't have any eligible contestants. What a cute idea, though. I like anything to do with coloring!
