David’s ADHD has Arrived… Another Kalpart Cover Reveal!

David’s ADHD!!!

David’s ADHD has arrived… Such a cute cover by Kalpart Illustrations!

Stay tuned for availability…

There is a lovely quote on the back of the book…

David’s ADHD is a timely topic for parents and children. A story in rhyme that demystifies ADHD. It explains a youngster’s behavior in terms of his inattentiveness and impulsivity and how it impacts those around him. A sensitive way of creating understanding for children with ADHD and their families.”  ….Dr. Valerie Allen – Licensed School Psychologist

I hope this book will help kids with ADHD learn ways to cope, and that classmates will understand and learn to be patient and understanding.

This book includes my “classroom of kids”, with many characters from my previous children’s books, and I hope that some of my readers discover that David has been in the classroom for a long time!

Forgotten 3rd Grade Christmas Poem, at age 7…

I love the way my illustrator, Kalpart, kept the star as the source of light for all the lovely illustrations in Santa’s Birthday Gift. 

I recently discovered this poem that my mother had saved…

Many have asked when I started writing poetry and I always have responded that it was at about age 4, but that I had lost the collection of those earliest poems.

I recently discovered this 3rd Grade Christmas poem, written at age 7.  Yes, I skipped a year.)

Happy December 1st… the first day of Advent…!


Star in the sky,

Twinkling your eye…

Are you big?

Are you small?

Are you fat?

Are you tall?


I am small,

And I am tall…

I’m the star in the sky

That shone in baby Jesus’s eye.

Christmas Gifts of Love

Give your loved ones some poetry of loveLove was born at Christmas!

The Spirit of Christmas

Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,

The longing to give in your heart,

The wanting to make others happy,

As God gave us love at the start.


For God’s love was born at Christmas,

All wrapped in a small holy Boy.

So we want to give on His birthday,

To share all our love and our joy.


You’re never too old to love Santa,

Just open your heart and believe…

That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,

And it’s better to give than receive.
