Nothing compares to the joy I feel whenever I see photos of children reading my book.
This was taken while watching over Cloe the whole afternoon. She loved reading The Magic Paintbrush so she was so excited when I showed another book that I had written.
I sent a copy of Mud Spots and Candy Sprinkles to my illustrator in the Philippines. She said her two kids were so thrilled to find out that their mom illustrated this book.
Here are the grandkids of my poet friend, Carole. They have just discovered two new favorite bedtime stories.
I couldn't visit Ayla while she was about to go through her first chemo treatment so I sent her a copy of Mud Spot and Candy Sprinkles. I wished I could give her even just a few minutes of happiness through my book.
