Five Reasons Why You Wanted to Write Children’s Books.


First and foremost I am an Aunt who loved reading to my young nieces and nephews and created stories that I hoped would amuse them! When they grew up, I had the memories of the fun I had reading the stories to them.

The second reason is that I now have a new little niece Jillian, actually she is just turning five this May and I had a chance to re-write and re-awaken the stories that had lain dormant for so long. Bringing the book back to life for her, made me want to share the stories with everyone! That is when "The Bedtime Of The Sky and Other Sleepy-Bye Stories" was created.

The third reason is that I am a Substitute teacher and have enjoyed reading books that focused on happy, light stories that had a message in them but were not heavy handed about it. I wanted to write stories like that.

The fourth reason is that I loved to read stories in verse as a child and love poetry as an adult. I would like to introduce poetry and verse to children in the hope that they will enjoy it as much as I did!

The fifth reason is that I love reading about fantasy and magical adventures myself and wanted to share the magic with children. Children are so receptive and imaginative and it is a beautiful thing to see them absorbed in a good bookFive Reasons Why You Wanted You Wanted to Write Children’s Books

I got in too late to review this book, however, I'll be doing a guest article with Carolyn on my blog Sept. 15th. I really was disappointed that I missed the review part. This looks like a fun to read. I love to cover. I love children's books. It's the teacher/mom in me I guess.

Please include me in this giveaway. I have directed everyone in my blog post to come to this site for the giveaway.

I'm a subscriber and follower too. thanks
