Here at Pages of Life Publishing, we’re excited about our newest publication. It’s a first for us and we couldn’t be more proud of the newest author and first illustrator to join our team.
The Treasure in the Barn, book one in the Tiny Treasure Series, came into existence after ten-year-old cousins Renisa Simpson and Joshua Hodge decided to collaborate on a book for kids. The story, one about trust, friendship, and forgiveness, has become a great way for parents, teachers, and others alike to introduce important social concepts to children. We know there are many ways to do this, but are certain one of this best is through the wise words and creative artistic efforts of children’s peers. Hopefully, those who read The Treasure in the Barn will agree.
Genre: Juvenille Fiction
