I hope this morning finds you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and excited about living in the now :)
So, something unprecedented has happened today.
The pitcher who was up is a no show!
She was scheduled but never sent her pitch and info... and I've been distracted and didn't notice until I went to write the post...
So you guys all get a restful day with nothing but Something Chocolate and the June Pitch Pick!
That's what I thought :)
And what could be better for a hot day in July than a chocolate ice cream float?
|Recipe HERE (along with 19 other ice cream floats!)|
Now that we're all properly fortified with the kind of brain food that will allow us to make hard decisions, let's have a look at our new and improved June pitches. Once you've read and pondered, please choose the pitch you feel most deserves a read by editor Erin Molta and vote for it below by Sunday July 19 at 5PM EDT.
#1 Lavanya - The Sun, The Moon, And Eve (PB ages 4-8)
In the dawn of the world, a child called Eve sings out her love for her siblings, the Sun and the Moon. But when Eve's songs reveal her favorite, the Sun and the Moon unleash their fury. Eve must dispel the terrible shadow that follows, and restore their harmony.
#2 Michelle - The Sunflower Traveler (Chapter Book ages 6-9)
Rhea’s interest in growing sunflowers for Petal Path’s Magazine Contest turned into a quest to help her family when her dad lost his job. Her final requirement for the contest is to describe something new about her sunflowers. But time traveling through a sunflower, talking with birds, and instructing a new gardener from the past may be more than she’s bargained for. Will Rhea solve her sunflower problem and still make it back in time to enter the contest?
#3 Darshana - The Boys Of Koh Panyee (PB ages 4-8)
The boys of Koh Panyee, Thailand dream of becoming football champions, but they live on a floating village. Unable to find open space anywhere, the boys find another way to make their dream come true, even in the face of village naysayers.
#4 Johnell How Much Farther (PB ages 4-8)
Buddy wants Dad to carry him. Dad wants Buddy to try out his big kid legs. Both have creative ways to get what they want.
