>Win Jan Brett

>I have it on good authority that when Jan Brett was asked how she paints the incredibly intricate borders of her popular picture books she replied, “an inch an hour.”  But you can ask her yourself by entering (and, duh, winning) her contest for a free school or library visit. Just be the school or library who gets the most people to “like” Jan on Facebook. I love the tip on winning: “The teachers and parents from the school went to all the nearby assisted living housing and asked the residents to help out by sending in entries. They won!” Now that‘s ruthless.
