Writing for Children and Exploring their world
TEACHERS AND PARENTS......Peppers Special Secret is available. It can be purchased at Penitpublishcations.com or from Amazon.com. We are having a great time sharing this cute story with young children and helping them to discover Peppers Secret. Pepper runs away from loud noises and moving objects. What do you think her secret is?
This book is an excellent addition to your school library or home book collection. It helps open the conversation with young children about what it feels like to be different and how young children can deal with their feelings about other physical challenges. The illustrations by Savannah Horton are so cute and really bring out the text of the short story. You won't be disappointed.
Here is Peppers... isn't she cute. What can you tell is different about Peppers from her picture? Is that the secret?
Coming soon.... Pepper's Special Secret..... a soon to be released Picture Book that tells an endearing story about Pepper and her secret that makes her different yet oh so special. This cute story is a great one for the independent reader but also will be enjoyed as a read aloud by an adult. Pepper is a kitten that deals with something ( I can't reveal the secret ) that makes her stand out from other kittens. And just like sometimes children feel differen, kittens need a friend. There are discussion questions included for the adults to help open the conversation about being different and making others feel included. I will post as soon as I have a release date from Pen It publishing but it will be soooooooooon!
I am taking the same advice as I share with you and it will be in the form of reporting my adventures here as I research topics for a new nonfiction series of childrens books. What topics interest you? Creatures in the ocean? Not so famous women in history? Haunted houses? Snakes? Disease, cure, medicine, science, astronomy. space, insects, ........Let's explore 2017 together and have the adventure of a lifetime just by reading and writing .....First stop will be.............You tell me.
Those of you who have visited my page,
I write all kinds of fun and interesting stories for children and I write some pretty cool stuff for adults too. My favorite stories are about children who have a problem and find a good way to solve it. My next best thing to write about are different animals. I love kittens, puppies, ponies, and alpacas. Adults will like my prayerbook, and I am working on Christian fiction, a quilting book, and health and wellness ideas for mom and dad.
This website will feature stories, recipes, crafts, and interesting facts for children and their parents. Maybe we can share ideas about what you like to read. There will also be a chance for you to submit a story to share. I have all kinds of fun stuff planned for us. And I want mom and dad to enjoy what they find here too. No matter what kind of family you have, hopefully you will find interesting things to read, activities to try, and ways to stay healthy.
The very first item on my list is to find the ideas that interest you. I need your help. Leave a comment and give me some suggestions for what you think a good topic would be? I can't wait to read your ideas.
School is in session. Here are the topics I can bring to your school:
Writing Picture Books
Pepper's Special Secret and what it means to have special needs or challenges... activities to help children how it feels to have physical challenges.
First Aide for First Grade- simple tasks first graders can do in an emergency. Goes along with soon to be published easy reader on the subject.
First Aide for Second Grade- making a first aid kit for home... hands on activities for small groups. Goes along with a soon to be published easy reader on the subject.
Sharing Your State- brainstorming ideas for each classroom to help them write and illustrate their own book on their state.
As the author of a prayer book for adults and picture books for children, I have a passion for helping children learn to love reading and writing. As a nurse I can also offer children basic skills to help others in need and to recognize how satisfying it can be to develop these skills.
Watch for upcoming dates available for school visits and specific outlines for content to be posted here soon.
Available for school visits or library visits to bring this adorable picture book to your classroom. Email me with questions or availability.

I have a blog where I review books for children. Carla's Cloud Catastrophe is a funny and imaginative book for children ages 4-8. Carla is missing her birthday party because the clouds are falling from the sky into the town where she lives. Can you imagine if that reallly happened on your birthday? What would you do? It seems silly but oh what fun stomping through the clouds might be.
If mom or dad wants to read more about this fun book by children's author Beth Bence Reinke one click on the link will take them right to it.
My Favorite Part of a New School Year
My favorite part of starting a new school year or a new writing project is gathering my supplies. I love notepads, sticky notes, fun pens, and goofy paper to write my stories. What is your favorite part of starting a new school year? Is it the new teacher, making new friends, being in a new grade, or learning new things? If you really don't like school, is there one thing you can try this year to make it better? Write and let me know how your new school year is going? I would love to hear about it.
