Mahi Mishal asked me if I would share a copy of Santa’s Birthday Gift with her Sunday School in Pakistan, so I mailed a copy on Dec. 11th! They have finally received the package, I have received these wonderful photos of the children…

In this time of divisiveness and occasional loss of hope, when we seem to be reevaluating our values, I urge everyone to try to remember the Golden Rule:
Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
This morning I mentioned on FB that some now miss the feeling of hope, now that it seems to be gone…how we know we had it because of how we are feeling now… I feel worse when people tell me not to worry because I’m old enough (76) that Social Security & Medicare changes probably won’t affect me. But what about my children & grandchildren? What about my friends and those I care about? What about all those I haven’t met yet – or those less fortunate? Since I’m white & Christian I have less “threat” – but my whole message in all of my children’s books is to be kind & have consideration for others… What is happening to hope?
The mother of one of my kid-fans wrote to me:
“Sherrill, don’t change because of what is happening.. I love your books for just the reasons you mentioned, you are what our children need right now. We can’t change how adults feel, but with your stories, you help us to teach children how to grow up having kindness for others.. Your words are powerful, they give me hope!”
So that gives me hope!!! And that hope includes hoping that everyone will try to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”…
Please treat others the way you would like to be treated…
My granddaughter helped me share my books at the annual “Lunch With Santa” event at Buckingham Springs… As always, we had a great time!!!
Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! is not what it seems… Little Rosemary is afraid to go back to school after her teacher has warned the class that they would soon have mice and spiders and webs in the classroom. Imagining all the worst that could happen – like having smelly mice on her desk, and the kids teasing her because of her fear of spiders – not to mention the idea that only the girls would be subjected to this horrible situation – she discovers that her listening skills need improvement! Rosemary finds that her class is getting some computers – involving a mouse to control computer input, a joint class “web” project on the internet, and the class is not just for girls…
Here are the closing lines:
“There’s only one question that’s left to explain:
Why just for girls? Why only female?’
Ms. Eddy just smiled and replied, “I said e-mail!”
Winner of 5 Awards, Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My! illustrates the importance of being a good listener. It also is a cute introduction to basic computer terms. It has won a Global eBook Gold Medal, a Bronze Medal in the FAPA Awards, a Readers’ Favorite H.M. Award, a Reader Views Reviewers Choice H.M, and also a Pinnacle Achievement Award.
