Overview

This illustrated book for beginning readers is only six chapters long. Its subjects include losing teeth, digging tunnels, observing the work habits of ants, and swinging on vines; all high interests for the children in its target audience.

Mee-key is bored and sad. Mama-mo is having a busy day, and his older brother can go everywhere and do anything. Why does it take so long for a small monkey to grow bigger?

However, Mee-key decides that being little has some advantages when his older brother can no longer fit on their mother's lap during a thunderstorm.

"Sometimes I like to be little, and sometimes I want to be big," he concludes. "Little and big are both good. But when it storms, I'm happy to be little."

The author is a mother of two grown daughters and a retired teacher with two degrees in elementary education.

Meet the Author

As a child growing up in cozy little town on the Missouri River of South Dakota, I explored my early passion for writing and art by creating stories and poems. I even attempted one novel on theme paper and kept it carefully hidden on a high dusty shelf in my bedroom. I sometimes wonder where it is today--probably lost forever.

My husband and I have lived in Arizona for many years now. We have two grown-up daughters with homes and families of their own, but Topper, our cat lives with us.

I hold two degrees in Elementary Ed. Teaching for twenty-one years in grades 1,2,3,4, and 5 was a cherished joy, and even after retirement I continued to work with students in a reading intervention program.

...And throughout my adult life I wrote, painted, and revised my stories for children and their families. I finally realized that I had shelves and drawers filled with ideas, problems, and children who lived only in my imagination and my stories---in short, books without readers. Such a waste!

Publication offers me an audience and completes the communication cycle that sometimes began with a germ of an idea many years ago.
