Call for Submissions: Green Bamboo Publishing is looking for real pets to feature in an upcoming children’s book.
The book follows the journey of a foster puppy named Super Sebastian, who encounters various pets who help him as he moves from home to home.
Green Bamboo Publishing is seeking submissions for the children’s picture book High Paw, Super Sebastian! People are invited to submit their pet for a chance to be included in the book. All chosen submissions will have a character based on their pet, will receive a free copy of the book and a thank you in the dedications.
This is a chance for people to participate in raising awareness about the foster care system. High Paw, Super Sebastian! is designed to teach children how to process their emotions while providing education on a relatable level on what it is like to experience foster care. The book also has the secondary purpose of raising awareness about rescue animals.
Raising Awareness About Foster Care
Children in foster care often move several times a year, with nothing more than a garbage bag for their belongings. With each move, children experience emotions that become increasingly difficult to process. By telling their story through the narrative of a foster puppy, High Paw, Super Sebastian! provides a safe and gentle way for children to learn about an otherwise difficult topic. The story is heartwarming and fun, with colorful characters introduced along the way.
25% of the proceeds from High Paw, Super Sebastian! will be donated to Braid Mission, an organization that provides team-based mentorship to children in foster care.
How To Submit
People can submit their pets by sending an email with a photo and information about their pet to firstname.lastname@example.org OR they can submit by making a post about their pet on social media and tagging @greenbamboopublishing.
All submissions must include a photo of the pet, the pet’s name and age, and information about the pet’s personality or any unique traits.
Deadline for submissions is May 15, 2020.
