Eco-Kids: Level 1

This may not be what people usually post query letters for, but this coloring book has a theme, a story, and characters that learn and develop. It just happens that you can color their adventures and learn from the activity pages. That said, here's my first try at writing a query letter! Thank you t...

I didn't explain this in my email but I hope to make this in...
