Do you want to be in DDW’s next book?


As you all know by now, my first children’s picture book, I WONDER hit shelves in May 2016 and it focused on fatherhood (shocking, I know). But now, I’m looking for photo submissions to I WONDER’s sequel coming out in Fall 2017. For this book, I’m looking for photos of kids of different races/ethnicities playing and engaging in different activities. If you have photos that fit the bill, send them my way by completing this form. Here’s what I’m looking for specifically:

  • Kids of different races eating ice cream together
  • Kids of different races doing good together (like charity work)
  • Kids of different races getting in trouble together
  • Kids of different races creating art together
  • Girls of different races wearing funky hats together
  • Anything else that is cute or creative

Please be sure to read the standard disclosure below before you do. Happy submitting!
