Author Zelma Lisa Loseke and illustrator Bert Dodson will be on hand to autograph their new book for children.
Zelma's Farm tells the story of a little girl whose happy life is turned upside down by the tragic loss of her father and farm. She vows to build a farm of her own and soon people bring her their unwanted animals to take in. Zelma creates a place where children find safety and beauty while they learn the value of gardening, sugaring, beekeeping, animal care and apple picking. Zelma's Farm shares how God calls the broken and unqualified to do his work in this world.
Zelma Lisa Loseke comes from three generations of farmers. She has been taking in rescue animals on her own farm for 30 years. She is an artist and has worked in television, music, and advertising. A painter, teacher and illustrator, Bert Dodson is the author of the best-selling book, Keys to Drawing. He's illustrated more than 70 children's books. The closeness of this husband and wife team shines through the watercolor illustrations of this personal story.
“Zelma’s Farm reflects the life story of a woman who, through the lessons derived from both her personal mountains and valleys, has painted a picture of hope, love and grace to all that she is blessed to serve.” -Joseph A DeAngeles
