Introducing a New Children's Picture book, Wish

Dear Book Lovers,
It's been awhile since I've posted and I apologize.  Several books were brewing, each with its own interesting set of questions and issues. Unfortunately, a massive log jam developed.  While I was afraid that all was lost, low and behold a book that I'd dreamt about for years suddenly became a possibility and it leapfrogged over all the other books to burst into life.

I am excited to share that my first children's picture book is being published on November 17th, 2015. It is called Wish and it's about the journey of a dandelion seed. It's for ages 0 -3 and I know that babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers are going to just love it.

The illustrations are bright and colorful and drawn by Tanja Tadic. Right now pre-orders are available for Kindle and hopefully soon for the print version.  Otherwise both versions will be available starting on the 17th.

Here it is:  Isn't it cute?

Please let me know what you think!  I'd love to hear from you.  I am hopeful that some of my other "log jams" will now behave themselves and I'll be sharing more about them soon. In fact, if any of you like time travel, I may have the story for you!

Happy Reading,

Dick's Sporting Good's Sports Matter Program

I've been busy working on upcoming fiction and manners books (and working on publicity for So you think you babysit monsters?, but haven't had much interesting progress to share just yet.

But I did want to share information about the Dick's Sporting Good's Sports Matter project.  I actually heard it on the radio when I was driving last week. Because of my book The Kids' (and parents', too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship  (written because of our family's interest in sports), I logged onto my laptop to check it out once I was home.

Sports programs are being affected by school budget cuts and this project is helping raise money for schools.  Schools are encouraged to do their own fundraising and Dick's will match it dollar for dollar.  You can choose to support a specific school or donate to a general fund.

Donations of any amount are accepted. Just wanted to share this fundraiser in case you are interested in children's sports.

Have a great weekend!
