As many of you know, this has been over a year long journey getting to this point on this personal project. I am so happy to be able to do this for my mom, Marilyn Van Wagoner, who has given me so much and supported me through thick and thin, and while climbing my own mountains. Thank you, Mom!

This is the back cover for Itsy Bitsy Teddy Bear’s Adventure! This declaration from my mom (which was brought to my attention by my sister) was my inspiration to do this project -- my mom, Marilyn Van Wagoner's storytelling desire made real for generations to read and enjoy in the form of a book.

A huge thanks also goes to my husband, Kurt Keller, for his awesome support in completing this project and for this beautiful cover design! He really pulled this together to make a cover that I hope will draw in readers.

Thanks also to my patrons and helpful supporters who provided input to the cover design. We had a few options from which they helped us choose. I was originally going to put the Storytelling image on the inside, but it felt right to put it on the back. I hope you agree. I hope my mom approves.

We also decided after much discussion between us and many supporters on social media to eliminate the commas in the title.

And a big thanks goes out to all of you. Thank you for sharing this adventure with me. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my process from sketch to final book. Soon, very soon, we’ll have a link for purchasing the book!

We’ve almost made it to the top of the mountain. Thank you for staying tuned during this process. Stick around for the culmination of all this hard work, a real book!
