Watching and Learning

I stood in the grocery store today watching a little girl ask her mom questions about a book she was holding. I could not read the title but when she didn’t get her attention she began to tear it up a bit.  Mom then spoke scolding to her about the respect of books and how you should take care of them and she took the book away.  I stood there thinking along time about that.  It is amazing how you get so caught up in life and daily chores that paying attention is difficult and sometimes to the wrong things.  To me for the second to answer a question and look at the book smile and go on would of took less time than what did happen.  Sometimes I wish I could go back and do my child raising differently but we don’t see things till we have slow’d down and and learn to watch, maybe that is the granny stage, did I really say that.  But I wanted to go and read to her and let mom shop, it would of been wonderful. I am not saying she was wrong in anyway I was a mom too, but I did see how kids when they cannot get you on the upside they take you to the down side, hope I said that correctly.  My story about the bird and the duck, in The Duck That Didn’t Know, I really wanted to say, we do our very best as parents and try to see ahead, but as children we are also learning to be parents, really the manual is living it.  Maybe someday she will read one of my books, but I will teach her to fold the page she wants to come back to instead of tearing it out and handing it to me in pieces to look at.  hahahahaha  Have a wonderful night all.  ❤

Welcoming Readers

It is so hard to get people to your website and then on top of it buy a book.  They do not know me from a hole in the wall, but then Suess was a hole in the wall at one time too.  I hope someday someone takes a chance and buys a book from me and finds it fabulous for there little ones.  I have been working for 2o years and still working hard to get out there.  My stories are moral stories that teach simple ways to help them grow to be a better person. Like The Duck that Didn’t Know,  all moms and dads can do is direct them in the ways they have learned in there lifetime and then it comes a times where kids grow and have to learn what is out there for them and learn who they really are.  As the duck in the story learns who he is and what he is good at his mother the bird also knows she taught him the best she could and that in life is all we can really do.  Give our children the best part of us, hope they listen and learn and then let them fly away with the feeling we did all we could do.  LIfe goes on even when we are gone and what we leave behind is a gift all in itself, my stories will live forever for they are complex and simple to grasp for small kids and most of all, fun to read.  These stories give a lot of run to be theatrical and to give self expression. That is all I ever want for kids, to ask the dumb question people don’t have time for and then write a story because I am always listening to those little voices of the future.  xoxoxo
