I still pinch myself that I have a published book out!
For those of you on Instagram, I am hosting a giveaway to celebrate 6 months of publication by giving away 6 signed copies of my book. Head over to my Instagram account to check it out and enter the giveaway which ends on 2/28. Good luck!
When the box arrived from the shop, Books and Books @ The Studios of Key West, I couldn’t wait to open it!
Yes, it had books in it. But, not just any books.
I opened the box carefully. I’m pretty sure that I eeped or yelped a bit.
I took the books out. Three books looked back up at me. I ordered two books for my daughter and one for me.
I slowly opened the book for me first.
The little girl in me glowed after seeing this page! Growing up, I loved reading Judy Blume books! Her writing and topics created a movement. The characters stay with you over time. She has also inspired me as a writer.
I can’t wait to share that inspiration and these two books below with my daughter.
A great way to end 2020!
Thank you to Judy Blume and to Books and Books @ The Studios of Key West!
As the summer approaches for children, you can find a few resources to keep your children reading in addition to your local libraries.
First, Barnes and Noble offers a summer reading program every year where the children track at least 8 books on a form. Then, in August, they can come into the store and pick a book off of their list for free! Click here for the form.
Also, Scholastic is having a “Read-A-Palooza” Summer Reading Challenge. Over the summer, kids log their minutes that they have read online. They unlock digital rewards, book excerpts, and other summer content. In addition, once participating kids reach 25, then 50 and then 100 million minutes collectively read in the Summer Reading Challenge, Scholastic will donate a minimum of 200,000 books to kids in need across the United States! Click here for information on this program.
Make sure your littles read over the summer to continue their education from the previous school avoiding that summer slump. And let your kids explore, grow, travel, and have fun reading some cool books over the warm summer!
