Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated
What wonderful news to receive!! It was especially fun since we are now traveling and when the results were announced by email, I had forgotten that I had entered The Golden Rule instead of My Little Angel, since I hadn’t entered these awards before & Angel will be eligible next year… I went back to see if I recognized any authors & found myself again!
So for the first hour, while sightseeing, I was exuberant about A Penny for Your Thoughts winning its fourth Gold Medal… and an hour later I discovered that The Golden Rule was also a Gold Medal winner!!!
I had a lovely morning reading to combined kindergarten classes at my granddaughter’s school. She was so happy to be my “illustration holder” – and thanks to my awesome illustrator, she is the little girl on the My Little Angel cover!
They also loved The Magic Word, Manner-Man and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys! Amazingly attentive children!!!
“A Must for every childrens’ book basket February 28, 2018
Once in a while my friend’s 4 yr old son will spend a few hours with me at my house while my friend takes care of a lengthy To Do list in a fraction of the time it takes with a 4 yr old in tow. Not having kids myself, I have always been a bit awkward with children. I wasn’t sure if ‘Mon Vieux’ would screech his heart out for the entire afternoon or not, the first time his Mom bade him to stay and didn’t take him with her. He did settle, eventually. When ‘eventually’ was no longer in the future, but in the present, it was cause for quiet celebration. Mon Vieux took an inventory of the basket I had put things I remembered liking when I was 4. Reading books was one of my most favorite things, and it still is. I instantly saw a kindred spirit as he gathered up My Little Angel and Manner-Man and installed himself under my desk next to my feet. THANK YOU Sherrill!”
