My books were born out of my love of children and my hope to guide them through important learning experiences. I was looking for a new and creative way to show the children how they could use their imaginations and express their feelings. I showed them how with a few pictures of their beloved pets they could create a fun adventure. A book made easy through places like Shutterfly can be read to the new baby, grandparents, or family and friends. I found that the children loved to read my story, and they then started to create some stories of their own. My goals are to encourage creativity, enhance a passion for learning, and increase our understanding of the importance of other beings. Being a preschool teacher for twenty-seven years, I discovered that you can never have too many stories to read with the children. So if my story can help the next generation to express them self, enjoy reading, and be creative, I would be truly blessed.
