Great Reviews for my Children's Book App!

I am so happy to see the great reviews that the 12 Days of Christmas, children's book app, I illustrated for Polk Street Press got! 
★★★★ from Common Sense Media and SmartAppsForKids.com

“Polk Street Press has taken its turn with the old chestnut, providing cute animated vignettes to go along with the lyrics. Withrow’s colorful and charming illustrations are animated just enough to keep little eyes engaged.” – Kirkus Reviews
“The video recording that kids can create of themselves singing along with the song is a fun, holiday-spirit option to share with grandparents or friends” – Common Sense Media

Christmas Box Cards

Recently, I had the pleasure of working on two sets of Christmas boxed cards for Gartner Greetings. They were so much fun to design and paint. I cannot wait to see them printed!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and best wishes from my house to yours!

12 Days of Christmas children's book app published by Polk Street Press -aka- My first children's book app!

I am excited to announce that I have illustrated my first children's book app called Sing along with 12 Days of Christmas, published by Polk Street Press. Polk Street Press is a new publisher that is focusing on creating innovative digital experiences for kids. I enjoyed working with them on this project and am thrilled to see my art come to life!

My app in the apple iTunes store!

Here's some my art that you can see in this children's book app. It's fun to watch the characters move!

Lastly, here's some information about this app.

This innovative take on the Christmas classic is sure to get you into the holiday spirit! Create your own Christmas videos as you sing along to this original arrangement. Play along to practice counting down from 12 as you discover each gift from your true love. Gorgeously illustrated and fun, 12 Days of Christmas will delight children ages 4 to 104!


  • Create your own holiday recordings to share with friends and family
    iPad2 users can create videos of their singalongs to easily share via facebook or email. All users can record their own audio versions to personalize the singalong. Share the excitement of the season with everyone you know!
  • Gorgeous animated illustrations by award-winning artist Lesley Breen Withrow
    Sing along as turtle doves snuggle, ladies dance and pipers play. There’s always more to enjoy in every scene.
  • Play along while reinforcing counting skills
    Practice counting down from twelve as you tap along with each verse. Can you get it right every time?

    What a great way to get into the holiday mood!
