Happy birthday to the best children’s author, in my opinion, the modem day Dr. Seuss. Love your books, please keep them coming, Ashlyn still goes around with the Manner-Man salute. We Love your books, that is what got her interested in reading. Thank you.
I am thrilled to announce that my newest children’s book, Manner-Man, has just been released to marketing and should be available very soon. Manner-Man is a very special book, about a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others, and incorporates messages and characters found within some of my previous books.
It will be included in the books available on my CureJM Fundraiser website, CureJM Fundraiser where 50% of the cost of the books goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease. Addie’s Angels Fans should find this book especially fun, since we have put Addie’s character on the cover with all the other children! See if you can find her!!
Manner-Man should be available on amazon and barnesandnoble.com soon!!
Today I discovered that Peter and the Whimper-Whineys has also been reviewed by Midwest Book Review, with the following review: “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a versed, color illustrated children’s story about a very unpopular small rabbit named Peter who only knows how to whine. Because Peter’s mother tires of his whining, she warns him about going to live with the Whimper-Whineys, a rude group of unpleasant beings. So Peter dreams of going deep into the dark woods to find these Whimper-Whineys and see just what is so disagreeable about them. His ensuing adventures reflect back to him just how unpleasant and sour the effect of whimpering and whining can be on all who are around it. Eventually, Peter finds his way back to his own little bed, awakening to a golden, sunshine-filled day. Do you think Peter has learned his lesson? “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a wonderful fable for harassed parents of fretful toddlers who only need a tweak and a joke to turn their frowns upside down.”
I thought it was time to share with my fans a sneak peak of the main character of my pending new rhymed children’s book, The Magic Word. Elisabeth is a little girl who has to learn the magic word “Please”. I hope that most of you have children who already know this word, but perhaps do not know how magic it is. Consideration for others is so important, and “Please” and “Thank You” can never be overused! I hope that this book will become as popular as Santa’s Birthday Gift and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and that it will help children everywhere learn the importance of good manners and thinking of others. What a wonderful world this would be!
Last weekend I had a wonderful reading/signing fundraising event at a Preschool in CT, where 40 adorable “good listeners” had their own book to read. After the event, the children left the room chanting “No more whining! No more crying!” I certainly hope it lasts!!
I just returned from signing 275 copies of Santa’s Birthday Gift for 3 schools and a store in the Philadelphia PA area. I also did lots of readings and decided that the most fun of being an author is reading books to the kids!
Authors of Children’s Books Strategic Book Group has added a new Fan Page for Authors of Children’s Books! Please check it out!! You can find me there, with lots of my author friends. Don’t forget that Christmas is coming, and books make great gifts!!!
