Xiaolei, mom of contest winners Leila & Angela
I love the word "empowered".... That's exactly how my girls feel coming out of this experience. They feel more confident in their art than ever. One of the things I love about this contest is that I know there are really people on the other end... who will actually kindly take an interest in our story.
Nate Bodi, youth artist limited edition art series
I can't even describe the feeling I got after seeing something I created professionally printed. I never thought in a million years my art would actually be for sale. I can't thank Kim & Erin enough at Youth Inspired Publishing for believing in me. This makes me want to do so much more now!
Jenny & Stacey, Founders Kids Learning for Life
We really loved reading The Secret of Annabelle with our kids. As owners of a homeschooling consultation business, we are always looking for books that keep our kids engaged while still being wholesome and age appropriate. I completely trust that I'll get that from the books we get at YIP.

Author James R. Lewis
- James has been telling stories to his kids and now grandkids his whole life. His dream has always been to have his books published. Pictured is James holding his copyright certificate for the youth illustration contest version of his first book in the Hidden Hollow Five Series: The Secret of Annabelle. The contest just finished and he had a challenging time picking illustrations from so many talented young artists. Support James and his youth illustrators by purchasing his book!
Rhymimals by Sarah Wedel
- A spunky modern alphabet book that features a new animal and adventure for each letter! As a mom of two, the author Sarah, got tired of reading the same children's books over and over again... which were not created with the adult reader in mind! Rhymimals was created so both adult and children readers can have fun and be entertained! She also wanted to write a book that teaches kids new words, inspiring them to grow their vocabulary! Right now she is collaborating with our youth artists to have each animal's story uniquely illustrated. Youth 18 years or younger are encouraged to join one the free illustration contests!
