Picture Books

These children’s picture books are on

disks for your children to ‘read’ on computer screens!


Tell your story--with a little help from Carolyn:

   Through the years, I’ve written many stories and illustrated them for my children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren, and I can help you do the same. They will cherish those stories like no others, because they will be written specifically for them.

   Here’s how we can do it, together: You tell me your story (via e-mail or regular mail) and I will edit and publish it. The illustrations will be taken from photos you send or original drawings I create. Then, the story and illustrations are put together in a picture book, spiral bound, with a laminated cover, hard enough to withstand years of use.

   It  costs less than you think to produce such a unique and personalized gift. Reach me via e-mail: carolyn@keyartworks.com or regular mail: Carolyn Liedtke, N7244 Manske Road, Lake Mills, WI 53551, telephone 920-648-7816.

Below are six books that I have written and illustrated. ALL are available on an individual disk, OR you can receive a disk with ALL SIX books included for $49, including shipping.

Eric’s Magic Hat

Synopsis: Eric had a magic hat. When he wore it, he could talk about anything, but when he took it off, he couldn’t think of anything to say.

So he decided to put the hat away until he was old enough to go to Kindergarten..
