A Letter From Kate

Dear Readers,

I enjoyed reading all the letters we received about camping for this issue. On a housekeeping note, I'd like to issue a request for submissions for Space Place. I've had a shortage of usable artwork over the last few months, and I'd like to ask for your help. I suspect that many of you will have grandchildren visiting over the summer months, and it's a perfect time to let them flex their creative muscles by drawing, painting, writing poetry, or expressing themselves in whatever form of art they enjoy.

Here are a few tips that will help your children's artwork appear in Space Place:

• Drawings done in crayon, marker or colored pencils reproduce best. Those done in watercolor paints, pencil or ballpoint pen don't look as good on our newsprint.

• White, unlined paper is also best for reproduction purposes.

• Seasonal drawings are always welcome! The holidays are still several months away, but children can be thinking about their favorite things about fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
