The White Spot

3 days left
Very Popular job

Hello! I am a 3rd grade teacher, and I am looking for help writing a children’s-style book. Though I will likely read it in my classroom, this book is really a present for my mom.
I am not entirely finished with the book, but the following is a quick summary:
A little girl and her mom live in a cozy home and live a happy life, but something is missing. One day, the little girl’s mom brings home a puppy. The puppy is completely black except for a white spot on her chest. The little girl and the dog become best of friends. The dog has so much love for the little girl and the mom that she just doesn’t know where to store it…so she decides to hold all of that love in the white spot on her chest.
Years go by, and the dog gets older. The little girl isn’t so little anymore. She just graduated from college and decides that the elderly dog needs a little friend. The girl brings home a puppy…an all black puppy with a white spot on her chest. Before the elderly dog crosses the rainbow bridge, she teaches the new puppy a lesson…store all of your love in your white spot.

Obviously, I am not a certified author or even merely someone who can come up with a great story line, but this is a story that I believe will mean a lot to my mom, as it is one that is based on our dogs. I need an illustrator to help me design the book and bring this story to life! I am wanting the first dog to be a cocker spaniel and the second dog to be a wirey-looking dog. I have photos for reference.
