Review: Mother Earth’s Lullaby
…and what better gift to give than a book. Books shape minds, give people an escape, give us something to talk about and who doesn’t have a book in their heart that has stayed with them long after childhood?
This is why I’m so excited to see Mother Earth’s Lullaby listed on Word Spelunking’s Holiday Gift Guide. The list is populated with some outstanding children’s books and authors (J. Patrick Lewis, Jane Yolen, Robert Sabuda, to name a few). Check it out for some great gift ideas!
MOTHER EARTH’S LULLABY: A SONG FOR ENDANGERED ANIMALS is now available at bookstores and online! It only took ten years for this manuscript to become a published book (but that’s for another post, when I don’t have a deadline approaching!).
Additionally, my publisher Tilbury House, offers a 20% discount to educators! But even if you’re not a teacher, I highly recommend checking out this gorgeous book. Carol Heyer‘s illustrations are stunning and something to spend some time with. Here are a couple of samples but the book has so much more–condors, pandas, wallabies, toucans, vaquitas, wolves, deer, toucans, rhinos, nēnē, and owls. Enjoy!
The year 2018 has been a challenging one for me. I’ve had not one, not two, but three family members face serious medical/health issues. Life has tested me, for sure, and I cannot wait for 2019 and the hope for less stressful, happier, healthier times.
That said, my life is settling back to normal now, except for one thing–I had to have hand surgery earlier this month! When I’m all healed, I’ll have a brand new “bionic” thumb! But for now, I’m in a hand splint and typing one-handed (non-dominant hand). It’s a bit frustrating at times (and yes, I’m aware of dictation software–just haven’t found one I like) but despite my temporary disability (“temporary” meaning 6 months), I wanted to share some news.
Simon & Schuster is releasing a Spanish edition of MAMA LOVES YOU SO! The new edition, CUÁNTO MAMÁ TE QUIERE will be released NEXT WEEK, on August 28! Same gorgeous artwork by Simone Shin but translated into Spanish!
