Kevin Kremer was frustrated when there were no Valentine’s Day books that he could read aloud to his fifth and sixth graders. Now, the longtime Mandan resident and Bismarck teacher, currently living in Florida, wants K-12 students, teachers, and retired teachers to illustrate and edit his new valentine story.
Valentine Shmellentine will make you laugh and touch your heart. In the story, a magic valentine flies down from the sky to fifth grader Jana Banana on the way to school. The kids at Ron Erhardt Elementary School in Mandan are about to experience the most incredible Valentine’s Day EVER!
It’s easy for students and teachers to get involved in editing and illustrating the story! Kremer has provided the third draft of the manuscript and complete directions on KevinKremerBooks.com. Students and teachers can read the story and then follow the directions for drawing a color illustration for the book or for offering revisions to the story.
Illustrations from all grade levels and teacher categories will be chosen for the published book, if possible. The deadline to submit the color illustrations is April 2, 2017. The final book and e-book will be published by September 1, 2017.
Those who have illustrations selected for the book will receive $20 plus a free paperback book plus special recognition in both the e-book and the paperback book. Students and teachers whose editing suggestions are used in revising the story will also be given recognition in the published book.
