We started Ripple Grove Press to bring some really wonderful children's stories to life. Every new author and illustrator that we sign becomes part of a collaborative environment and part of the RGP family.

Ripple Grove Press author MaryAnn Sundby recently did an interview with HomeschoolLiterature.com about her 2016 debut picture book Monday is Wash Day.
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
What is the approximate reader age range for your book? While on that topic, if you could tell us a little about your book, that would be great!
The target audience for Monday Is Wash Day is children, ages 4 to 8 years old, and their parents. The story is about two girls helping their mother tend to “the wash”. They understand that they can play after completing the household task. They know that helping others is rewarding and fun. Most importantly, working together establishes a bond between the sisters and respect from the mother.
You can read the interview in full here.
Monday is Wash Day, written by MaryAnn Sundby, illustrated by Tessa Blackham, will be out in late 2016. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all news and sneak peeks for our 2016 books.
