The Magic Word is a Giveaway on Goodreads

I have placed another favorite book, The Magic Word, on Goodreads again as a giveaway.  It is a favorite of many children!

What is the Magic Word?

Winner of 6 awards: Winner of the 2011 Readers Favorite Gold Medal, 2011 Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner, 2011 Global Finalist Award, 2012 Reader Views Second Place, 2012 International Book Awards Finalist, and 2012 Next Generation Indie Finalist.

Elisabeth needs to learn The Magic Word  “Please”, and to use it every day. Please and Thank you are words that everyone needs to use!

At the back of the book, there is this extra verse, which I hope you will share with your children:

There is a Magic Word

To use when you’re in need,

So give a smile and shout it out:

The magic word is Please!

 

There are some other words

That bring a magic touch:

When someone does nice things for you,

Say, “Thank you, very much!”

Thank you to all my friends, fans and family for helping me share my books!

A Way to Share Books…

Thank you to Charli Riggle and her shelf of books…I hope the children will enjoy The Magic Word!

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
But children in poor families need books just as much as children from well-to-do families. And you can help make it possible for them to have books! There are many places that you can donate books for children who need them.
I’ve adopted a bookshelf at the Sumner Bonney Lake Family Center. The Center provides services and referrals to local families in need. Homeless families, in particular, can connect with support through the Center. And all of the families served by the Center can get books for their children from the bookshelf in the waiting room. They don’t have to pay for them. They don’t have to return them…

Box of Books to Share

Box of Books to Share  A box of books ready to go to the children’s bookshelf at the Sumner Bonney Lake Family Center.

I restock the bookshelf once a month. Some of the books, I buy at used bookstores. Some, my friends give me when they clear out their children’s bookshelves. A Good Book, a local bookstore, donates many books. And some have been donated by Multicultural Children’s Book Day and participating author Sherrill Cannon…”

Thanks again, Charli!!!

Reading to the Pacific Sage PreSchool

PreSchoolSis BlogI love reading to children, but usually start at the Kindergarten level.  I had the pleasure of reading both The Magic Word and Manner-Man to the adorable youngsters at the Pacific Sage PreSchool (ages 3-4) and found it a delightful experience.  I truly think the rhyming – the music of the words – is the key.

It was also fun to share the reading with my sister of the heart, Judy Shaffer, who kindly held the books to show the illustrations to the children.  (Photograph credit to my husband!)

 

Nice Thank You Note from Laura Bush

I received the following Thank-You Note from Laura Bush, after sending her copies of Santa’s Birthday Gift and The Magic Word for her to share with her granddaughters.  Since she is a former teacher as well as a librarian (not to mention First Lady!) I thought she might like them!
