I wanted to share some exciting news!
Both of my children's books are Mom’s Choice Award Silver Recipients. The Mom’s Choice Awards is an annual competition that recognizes family friendly media and products. My first book, published in 2007, Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing won the 2009 silver for values and life lessons. My second book in this series, I DOUBLE Dare You! won the 2009 silver for developing social skills. I am proud to have my books included with all of the Mom’s Choice Awards honorees.
Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing is a story about Sammy, a squirrel who is teased because he has eyes like a raccoon. Sammy knows that name-calling is not nice, but his friends have a valuable lesson to learn. The name-caller soon becomes the one being teased. Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing is a story about friends that learn to treat others the way they would like to be treated.
The second book in this series is titled I Double Dare You! In this story, Sammy’s cousins Silly and Sassy, come to Walnut Grove for a visit. Silly and Sassy are always getting into trouble. They play hide-n-seek, have frog races, and play dare or double dare. How does this lead to jumping off a bridge? Read I DOUBLE Dare You! to find out how everyone learns to take responsibility for his or her own actions. They will also discover that it’s not always wise to follow your friends.
Both books have questions in the back for reading comprehension. I also have lesson plans available for both books on my website. They are listed under downloads.
