#166 Books for the Christmas Stockings

Books for Christmas

     Books are very healthy for children, and they fit nicely into their Christmas stockings!

     They allow their young reader to travel in time, to other places, and to become someone else entirely.

     I am the author and illustrator of all seven of the paperbacks pictured above.  They are also available as eBooks for Kindle and Nook. For more information, please visit

     (One of my books entitled In the Mind of a Cat is currently available only as an eBook.  It is about Topper, my writing muse.)

     Thank you for sharing my interest in children's literacy.

     And keep reading...
