Guess What books are written in clever, four-line rhyming clues that describe people, places, and things within a specific theme for each book. In the fourth book, Guess What is in Grandma's Garden?, young children listen to or read clues about garden fruits and vegetables and even a few other surprises that show up in Grandma's Garden. After hearing the clues, turning the page reveals a colorful illustration which lets them know if they guessed correctly. Each Guess What book features illustrations done by Kids Around the World whose artwork is selected through a contest that the author holds.
O'Neill is happy to be able to give kids this creative opportunity and is excited that her fourth book features young artists (ages 10-17) from Poland, India, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, and Ohio. The level of talent is amazing.
Many of the young artists included in the series hope to pursue a career in art. Some have received other awards or have been featured in the media and a few have already started on their careers by illustrating for other authors. The possibilities are endless.
O'Neill also helps kids in another way. Part of the proceeds are used for donations to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, California.
Watch for the next Kids Art Contest for the fifth book in the series, Guess What is in the Ocean? For more information about the books, the illustrators, or the contest, visit www.guesswhatbooks.com.
