I haven't been able to attend many chats of Connie's so when I made this one I was so excited.Â Connie hosted an author chat with Mary Russel, she writes children books. Reading Mary's website and looking at her books there was things that really caught my eye.Â I am sure many of you will as well you should take a look.
When I was picked as receiving a free book I was so excited.Â I picked out "Flickertail & Paint,Barnyard Sleuths" for James. He loves books, and animals so thought this would be perfect for him.Â This is from Mary's site about Flickertail & Paint, Barnyard Sleuths....
Flickertail the llama & Paint the horse are peace keepers and peace lovers. They understand the value of teamwork, love, and friendship. They believe in helping others. Join them in the fun and antics as they solve various barnyard mysteries and help their friends find solutions to a variety of problems in this anthology of heartwarming and sometimes funny tales.
This will be another Christmas gift for James. I can't thank Mary and Connie for this opportunity to win this I know James as well as Eric and I will enjoy our reading time.
Another book I am getting for James is "Rudolph, a Child's Love Story".Â This book I feel will be very helpful for James.Â Any other individuals who are part of the advocacy or Baby James Foundation's family that is raising a child from abuse,Â or even adopted I really think you would want to check this book out. Mary don't have this book in stock but you can get it from her publisher here, right now its on sale so you will want to hurry.Â I am hoping I can catch it while its still on sale.Â This is from Mary's website regarding Rudolph, a Child's Love Story....
We are all the sum of our past experiences. Although fictionalized, Rudolph, a Child's Love Story was written as therapy and as an effort to make sense of an unhappy childhood. I needed to put my past behind me and to move on.
As I wrote it, some wonderful things happened. I realized that children who felt unwanted, unloved, and unaccepted might benefit from it. Perhaps, through my words, they too would discover the power of knowing they are worthy of love and happiness.
Perhaps, I could help to heal the hurt and stop the pain. Perhaps, like me, they would also begin to understand and forgive.
Thank You Connie and Mary!!!!!
