Well, I’m a day late in announcing the release of my latest book, JACK AND JILL AND T-BALL BILL (Random House Step-Into-Reading). It’s not that I’m not thrilled with this adorable easy reader (illustrated by Sue DiCicco). The problem is that for the past few months I’ve been pulled away from my writing because of a family medical emergency (hence, the lack of blog posts, too). So much so that I’ve cleared my schedule through summer’s end. So, lately I’m a bit behind on everything!
BUT…I do want to share here the great news about “T-Ball Bill” as I affectionately call my new book. In case you’re wondering, it’s a rhyming Step 1 (K-1) reader about Bill, a fun-loving dog, who interrupts a t-ball game by stealing the ball for his own game of Keep-Away. It’s only after Jill comes up with a clever solution to outsmart Bill that they get the ball back and the game resumes!
My hope is that dog-loving, t-ball-loving, book-loving young readers will snatch this one up and want to read it again and again, helping them on the road to becoming lifelong readers.
