It is my joy to announce the release of my newest children's book, Mokey's New Friends, from Guardian Angel Publishing! This book, illustrated by Marina Movshina is intended for preschool, kindergarten and early elementary school children. It tells the story of a playful and friendly monkey named Mokey, the friends he makes and what he learns about others' different appearances and abilities not making a difference in their being friends.
Visiting schools is a wonderful way to share books with children, give them enjoyment, teach them important life lessons, interact in a positive way and have fun while doing it! They teach us things as well while we are sharing.
My husband, Tom, and I have been doing quite a few visits recently and are so blessed by the little ones, their excitement and enthusiasm.
Here is an excerpt from each book that the children really like:
From Olive and the Great Flood:"Olive trilled soft peaceful songs to help them sleep at night. When the ark tossed back and forth, her coos relieved their fright."
From Count 1,2,3 With Me: "Eight legs help a spider to climb, which leaves a web behind each time. Mama Spider traps eight flies to eat. Spiders find bugs a tasty treat."
From Animal Sound Mix-up: "What if in a pond on a log a quack was heard from a small frog? Or in a forest you could hear a honking sound come from a deer?" (Of course Tom's animal sounds make these mixed-up sounds even more delightful for the children!)
Looking at those sweet, smiling faces reminds me why I do what I do, and I am extremely thankful!
