Picture Book Month
In honor of November being Picture Book Month, I thought I would post a selection from each of my picture books. As a grandmother, I have the great pleasure of sharing books with my grandchildren, and encourage all who have young ones to help develop the love of reading early. Enjoy!

What if a lion said meow . . .
or if a donkey said bow-wow?
Wouldn't it seem quite funny now
if they became mixed up somehow?
from Animal Sound Mix-up by Connie Arnold
illustrated by Kit Grady

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 Count 1,2,3 With Me by Connie Arnold

It is my pleasure to let you know that my next picture book, Olive and the Great Flood, will be released by Guardian Angel Publishing. I will let you know when I find out the date!

Connie Arnold said...

Hi Hilary, yes it brings lots of laughs to many children, and the counting book is a fun way to help children learn to count. I'm thankful to have opportunities to share them at preschools, and my husband provides the animal sounds and produces even more giggles! Thanks for your support!
