The Plans I Have for You, written by bestselling author Amy Parker and illustrated by award-winning artist Vanessa Brantley-Newton, is a playful picture book that inspires kids to dream about their future and to trust that God has great plans for each and every one of us.
Amy Parker's children's books have sold more than 1 million copies, including two Christian Retailing's Best award-winning books and the bestselling A Night Night Prayer. She lives outside Nashville with her husband and two children. Vanessa Brantley-Newton is a self-taught illustrator, doll maker, and crafter. Her passion for children's books began when she came across The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats as a child in the 1960s. Growing up in a musical family who loved to sing, Vanessa's illustrations are as fun and whimsical as a beautiful melody. Vanessa currently makes her nest in Charlotte, NC with her husband of 20 years, their daughter, and a very rambunctious cat named Stripes.
