When a child loves my books…

A friend of mine who I know through playing soccer in town recently took my first book, Big and Small God Made Them All, with her as she was going to visit extended family. Now, to be honest, that in itself is exciting enough BUT there’s more!

A few days into her trip she sent me a photo of one of the children in her family sitting in her lap, reading the book, and pointing to the illustrations.

I can’t really come up with the words to adequately describe how awesome it makes me feel to know even just one child loves the book! There are other stories like that, too, and it amazes me every time. I love, love, love when a young reader connects with the book whether it’s through the illustrations, the rhymes, the story, any part of the book.

If I were a puppy, I’d be wagging my tail all day!!! A big thanks to my friend, and to all of you who have picked up either one of my books. It means so much to me!
