Last fall I worked with World Vision to illustrate a couple of storybook greeting cards designed to encourage their sponsored children around the world. This first one tells a story of kindness among children in rural India. Theresa generously blesses others by sharing her favorite possession—her bicycle. As she does she discovers the biggest blessing of all—the joy that comes from being kind to others.
The storybook cards are part of World Vision’s “bounceback” initiative. Cards are first sent to each child’s sponsor, who can sign it and add a personal message, before sending it back to World Vision, who sends it onward to the child. At the end of the story, a keepsake item is attached which children can enjoy as an additional reminder and gift from their sponsor.
