It’s Christmas time in 1896 Cripple Creek, Colorado, and Ruby May Oliver and her donkey, Maude, roam the streets in search of Maude’s missing foal. Along the way, Ruby comes upon four people in need of gifts—gifts she discovers she can give. This gentle tale, with water color illustrations by Nate Jensen, is a great read-aloud or independent read for grades 2 thru 4. Readers who have enjoyed the antics of Ruby, her donkey, Maude, and cat named Trouble in the award winning Ruby and Maude Adventures will enjoy the addition of Maude’s foal, Willy in this heartwarming Christmas story.

A Completely Wild Christmas Tale!

 

Children’s Picture Book, Holiday Picture Book

Published: November 2020

Publisher: Shake the Moon Books

 

While Katy and her family spend a snowy Christmas away at Grandma’s house, a cold and clever little frog jumps at the chance to move into their warm, empty home. Unfortunately, so does every other four-legged forest dweller in the area. With the perfect holiday vacation house overrun with guests, chaos quickly erupts until the group finds a peaceful solution in this holiday tale of tails. What begins as a break from the wintry woolly land transforms into an annual holiday tradition of kindness and generosity. The Frog at the Window is a Christmas tale with a message for every season!

Excerpt

Tonight was the very first storm of the year,

and surprising how much it had snowed.

The Randalls were packed and all ready for bed,

with plans to wake early and then hit the road.

 

“Now Christmas was only a few days away”,

thought Katy, relaxed by the tree.

How will we ever reach Grandmother’s house,

when it’s snowing so hard I can’t see?”

And then as she sat staring into the night,

through the blustery, snowy white fog-

there stood, in the cold window’s lower right edge,

a tiny, green, shivering frog.

Cleo Can Tie a Bow Blitz

A Rabbit And Fox Story 

Children’s Picture Book

Date Published: September 2020

Publisher: Sybrina Publishing

 

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Cleo loves bows. She wears her hair in a bow and decorates her room with bows. Cleo is bow crazy.

Learning to tie a bow is very difficult for some people but Cleo remembers how to do it from a cute story she once heard. It is about a little rabbit with very long ears and a very helpful fox who shows her what to do to keep them clean.

This is the story of how Cleo learns to tie a “bunny ear” bow. You can follow along with the rabbit and the fox to learn to tie a sash or even shoe laces.

Exercises in manual dexterity build self-esteem in children. Knowing how to tie shoe-strings, scarves and more into a bow is a useful and rewarding skill.

“Teach a child a useful skill. Build confidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime.”
