Fun to get nice notes from friends who are sharing my children’s books.
“I lent all your children’s books to my sister for her 4 year old grandson and he loves them! He is reading and teaching himself so he is really having a good time reading the books and looking for the characters.Another success!”
One of the advantages of working with my awesome illustrator, Kalpart Illustrations, is that I have been able to use characters repeatedly in each of the different stories, resulting in a “classroom of kids” throughout the books.
It makes me smile when reading to a group of children when a student randomly exclaims “Look! There’s Gimme-Jimmy!” when that character appears in one of the illustrations.
Each book has a subliminal message of thinking of others, and children learn to treat others with respect and friendship and inclusion. Each book includes characters of color and ethnicity as well, so that every child can find himself/herself in the book.
What a wonderful world this could be!!!
