Kirsti Call's debut picture book, The Raindrop Who Couldn't Fall, came out December 2013 with Character Publishing. Her family band, Calling Out, plays songs written by her children. She co-coordinates Reading for Research Month, a challenge for picture book writers who use mentor texts to improve their writing skills.
