Thank you, Heavens to Betsy!

Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated

I enjoy getting news of children appreciating my books, so I am sharing this comment from Betsy Shawl, a former classmate to whom I had sent a copy of The Golden Rule.  She let me know that her long-time best friend and matron-of-honor had visited and…

“She has a grandchild (finally!!!) and she and her husband have moved to be near that daughter and child so I gave her my Golden Rule that you had so nicely given me.  This grandson is over two years old now and is off to nursery school this fall.  My friend Mary has read your book to him over and over (she reports) and he simply loves it and asks for it.  He loves the expression Heavens to Betsy so I wrote in the front that this was given to him by a friend of his grandmother, “Heavens to” Betsy Shawl.  I gather he was tickled with that.  So your book has a good home and is most appreciated (as it was here too!).”

Sharing with the children is what it’s all about!!!

Thanks, Heavens to Betsy!!

Fun Time at the Library Author Expo

It’s fun to meet new people and share books.

I love young readers!

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys – “Gonna have to read it again…”

Heeding the advice of an amazon top reviewer, who suggested always “liking” a review that someone has taken time to write for me, I decided to go back and look at and “like” some of the reviews.

I was delighted to find this one for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, which I am now sharing:

“I received this book last week and I had wanted to get a review up before now but life gets in the way so here it is now. I thought this was a really cute book. I had my 9 yr old read it which he saw it was from the same author as Manner Man and he grabbed it immediately. He read it and when he was done I asked him if he had liked it. He said, “Not as much as Manner Man. But I’m gonna have to read it again to make sure.” Now that should be a review for you. He has to read it again to make sure he doesn’t like it as much as another book. I would say that’s a definite like. Now if only Ms. Cannon had one about tattle-telling.”

This was a verified review from an “amazon customer”, so I thank you if you are reading this!!!

And thank you to Gisela Hausmann for the suggestion!!
