I am working on an illustrated book series for children (my progress is chronicled here from time to time in this blog.) Hubby has already published two books, one of which is for children. He's currently working on a novel, but he loves children's stories as much as I do. Last year he finished a second children's book for our grandson, Owen, who has a speech impediment. It is a common impediment, that he will eventually grow out of, they say, by the time he is about 8 or 10. He has trouble saying his R's. So grandpa wrote him a little book replete with R words!! It was Owen's fifth birthday present!
Anyway, a couple of our other grandchildren were visiting this weekend, and grandpa read Owen's little book to them at bed time! I just had to snap this sweet picture. Vivi is intently listening, while LaRaya is looking at his first book, while she listens.
I really need to finish my book project. It the first in a series, which I call my Grandma Books. There is a tab at the top of my homepage if you are interested. Books will be available on this site, eventually . . . :)
I love children's books, too. I loved to read them to my kids and grandkids. But I can't imagine writing or illustrating one!
Love the grandpa photo. Best of luck with the Grandma Books series. I'm anxious to hear more.
There is so much magic in children's books... and that's such a cute photo too! ;)
I think it's so sweet that you both write books for your grandkids :) What a great photo :)
I love reading time with Noli -- even though she reads everything now, we still enjoy that closeness of sitting together and reading aloud!
I love the idea of Grandma books!! I will be checking back for the finished product. You are very ambitious with that and having three blogs! Following you via GFC!
Great article. There's nothing like having a grandparent read to you.
