Children’s Books – New Christmas Classics

XMas Story - Cover

I know it’s nowhere near Christmas just yet, but I wanted to start sharing some of the children’s books that I have illustrated over these last few years. All of the books that I share should be available for purchase from Amazon for the Kindle. You can use an actual Kindle or you can download the Kindle app on your iOS or Android device. Some of the stories are even available for print. So be sure to check out all of your options before purchasing.

Illustrating Christmas books is always a fun time. Santa is such an easy and recognizable character to illustrate you just can’t go wrong with using him as a character in a story. This book was one of the first that I illustrated and it is definitely worth a look. The story is written in the perspective of Timothy Elf and has some odd twists on some new Christmas classics!

Amazon’s Description:
Brand new collection of 21 illustrated short children’s Christmas stories that are destined to become classics. Your kids will love hearing these brand new stories, as much as you’ll enjoy reading them yourself. Your kids will want to hear them over and over. Learn how Santa decided to use reindeer to pull his sleigh! Discover how Santa’s elves began building toys for all boys and girls! Find out how Comet became one of Santa’s reindeer! You’ll laugh out loud when you see what happens when Rudolph’s nose stopped shining.

A New Children’s Book Category!

IMG_4718If you didn’t know, aside from writing at St. Louis Dad I have another side venture. That is illustrating children’s books. So far I have illustrated a lot of them. Some of the stories I have illustrated are focused on a specific subject. Others are filled with nonsense or with a life lesson. I haven’t posted about the illustration work before because I wasn’t exactly sure how to showcase it. Now I have a good idea of what I want to do. So be on the look out for some new posts in this new category starting very soon!

I have worked with authors all over the world on these books. Check the map below. It shows many of the areas I have worked with authors on projects. Many of them are available on Amazon in the Kindle store. Some of them are even available in print format. I will be sure to indicate in each post what options are currently available. Some of the books may be available for free from time to time. If they are I will be sure to let you know.


If you are ever interested in working with me on a children’s book just let me know. I am open to just about any sort of project, but there is a process. Just let me know what you are thinking and we can work out all of the details.
