I enjoyed last weekend’s Library’s 3rd Annual Author Expo.
It’s fun to meet new people and share books.
Here’s the SBPRA Team! Fellow authors Karen Scheuer and Gary Spack share space:
Fun to see this from Kalpart, my awesome illustrator, since many of my characters are included… Kalpart has illustrated all nine of my award-winning children’s books!
How many characters can you find?
I found Manner-Man, Elisabeth from The Magic Word, Gimme-Jimmy, Santa’s Birthday Gift, and little Addie, who is my CureJM Jr. Reviewer and is one of my classroom kids in several books!!
I’m happy to report that the CureJM Fundraiser website, http://sbpra.com/curejm has been updated and my newest, My Little Angel, is now available as well.
As posted often: Please remember that everyone can help by getting great books for kids and grandkids (and their friends) and support CureJM – Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease – at the same time! Please visit the on-going CureJM Fundraiser at http://sbpra.com/curejm where 50% of the cost of my award-winning children’s books goes to the CureJM Foundation. The names of many JM kids are included in my newly released 2017 book, “My Little Angel“. Please help us find a cure for kids like Addie, Alyssa, Brookelyn, Cassie, Daisy, Dmitri, Eldon, Emma, Jaden, Kinser,Tristan, Zayden and all the other JM kids – and the many adults who also have this horrible disease!!!
Let’s help children learn to bring about a world where people treat others the way they themselves would like to be treated…
So pleased to discover this lovely review by Nancy Lorraine, Senior Reviewer, for My Little Angel in the the July 2017 Midwest Book Review!

“My Little Angel” is a lovely narrative verse story about a little girl’s miniature guardian angel, named Angela, who guides her safely through all the activities of her day.
Angela reminds the girl to buckle her seat belt, to be courteous and kind to others, and to do good deeds that help strengthen the spirit as well as the mind. Angela helps keep the girl safe and sound all day and all night too. She helps her to be careful and follow rules when crossing the street, and to remember to share when she plays with others.
Angela lets the child know that she is always loved, and although she may feel lonely sometimes, she is never alone. After a day of pleasant activities with Angela’s guidance and continued presence, the girl goes to bed feeling safe and loved, whispering prayers for loved pets and family: “She’s my little angel, sent from above /To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love. / When I close my eyes after prayers have been said/ Angela sleeps on the top of my head.”
Cheery colored illustrations and special notes from Sherrill help young readers connect to the story’s message.
A beautiful successor to the eight previous children’s books in this series, “My Little Angel” is a treasure for young readers age 5 and up.
Thanks so much to the Midwest Book Review for reviewing all of my children’s books and sharing them with libraries everywhere!
I am happy to report that over 500 of my eBooks have been donated to underprivileged school children around the world and are being used in classroom settings. They are part of a program to provide culturally relevant eBooks to children globally. Teachers get copies for the kids and Amazon donates Kindles for those kids. It is so gratifying to know that the teachers find my books to be written well enough to use in the classroom, and that so many of my children’s books are being shared! Manner-Man is a definite favorite! (Thank you to SBPRA for making this possible.)
What a nice message this morning! My Little Angel has won it’s first award! (My 47th Award…)
Your book has been chosen one of the NABE Pinnacle Book Achievement
Award Winners for Winter 2017.”
