My new children's picture book, Ebenezer Dragon Built the Prince a Wagon, is now available at amazon.com!
Ebenezer Dragon is happily headed to the palace, pulling the wagon that he made as a birthday gift for the prince. Along the way he meets several animal friends and offers them a ride to the palace so that no one will be late to the party. But the wagon becomes so full of animals that it is hard to pull, and poor, exhausted Ebenezer has to stop to take a nap! Oh no! How is everyone going to get to the party on time?
With sing-song text that you and your child can chant together, this colorful picture book is sure to tickle your child's funny bone.
I am currently looking for reviewers that would be interested in receiving a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review posted to amazon and/or Goodreads. If you are interested in reviewing this book, please contact me at email@example.com.
In 2009, Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin came up with the perfect way to honor his mother, a school teacher and book lover. He built a book box, designed after a one-room schoolhouse, and mounted it on a pole in his front yard. He filled it with books and invited people who pass by to take a book or leave a book to be shared with others.
The idea of the Little Free Library caught on and became a nonprofit organization. There are now 50,000 registered Little Free Libraries worldwide. They can be found in the UK, India, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and many more countries.
You can purchase a book box or get instructions on making your own at littlefreelibrary.org. The site contains all kinds of information about how to get involved. What a great way to share books!
This month we celebrate the talented children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. His best-known work, Where the Wild Things Are, was written in 1963, but Sendak had been illustrating books for children since 1947. Some of his other popular books are Chicken Soup With Rice, Pierre, Alligators All Around, and One Was Johnny. He also illustrated the charming Little Bear series by Else Holmelund Minarik.
Sendak was born in New York City on June 10, 1928. He lost many relatives during the Holocaust, which greatly influenced his life. Sendak's partner of 50 years, Eugene Glynn was a psychoanalyst. Sendak donated one million dollars to the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services when Glynn died in 2007. Sendak died May 8, 2012, at age 83, from complications of a stroke.
