"Thank you both so much for this webinar. The worksheets were wonderful. These worksheets gave me new insight into an old story that I had put aside!
I learned so much through this webinar. There are some webinars that feel like commercials through the whole webinar, but the Children Book Academy webinars feel genuinely devoted to helping people learn about creating children's books
I like that Mira and Andrea were able to answer so many questions and cover so much information in such a short period of time! Not only do I feel like I learned something, but I also had a ton of fun. It's great seeing old friends and meeting new people.
I had signed up for the The Craft and Business of Illustrating Children's Books before this workinar and I feel like it just confirms that I made the right decision. I can't wait to get started in this course. I hope lots of people join me for this adventure in learning!!"
