CHECKIN’ IN

 

disabled kid reading

Hi Guys,

Well, I had to check in with you and with your parents right now. For many of you, school has been in since September 5, 2017; so that’s about 2-1/2 to 3 weeks. How’s it going? Are you getting your study habits back? Do you have all of your school supplies? Are you practicing your favorite sport? Are you still reading? Is your library card current?

Remember, reading opens the world to you. I have so much to share with you and your parents this semester. I want to hear from you and your parents some good tips that I can share on this blog and I want to hear of all your accomplishments in school. Maybe you can share a picture with me so that I can feature it on my blog. 

What you do can inspire some other students to do their best. So, here’s to a great school year!

JUNIOR RABBIT IS ON THE MOVE!

Hi Guys,

Well, you already know that Junior Rabbit is my friend, and that I have written a couple of stories with him in it. Guess what? He is on the move in his next adventure. The book will be out in a little while. It’s called Junior Rabbit Travels to Pennsylvania. When you read this one, you’ll find out what happened in the last book. So, please look for it on Amazon.com in a few weeks.   Here’s the book cover below.  I am so excited.

Remember, too, that reading opens the world up to you.  Talk to you later.

QUILTING!

Hello guys,

Well, it’s me again. I have a little time and I wanted to let you all know that while I am finishing up my new book on Junior Rabbit, I also had some time to complete a project that is near and dear to me—QUILTING. I love doing projects, especially ones  where I get to use my hands. I love quilting. I just wanted to share with you all that I completed a couple of quilts this summer. You can see one of them below.  

In the first picture, you see a picture of my grandson. In the other picture you can see photos of different people. See, I told you that if you want to there are so many other things that you can discover by reading. I bet if you went to the library right now, you can find a book on quilting and get all kinds of ideas for quilts. So, get to the library this weekend if you can. The world is waiting to be discovered there at the library. Until next time….

Hi Guys,

Easter bunny lookingBoy, oh boy! It has been a while since I was able to talk to you guys. But I want you to know that I’ve had a time, keeping up with my friend Junior Rabbit.  He’s on the go right now. I have to find out where he is because he’s been traveling. You’ll find out, too, in a couple of months where his first adventure will be. 

 

 

Now remember guys, it’s Summer and there’s so much fun to be had. You’ll be visiting friends in different states, going to the park and amusements parks, having barbeques, swimming, bike riding, scooter riding and so much more.

Just don’t forget that while you’re having all of that fun, there’s a world of fun to be had at the Library. At the Library you can get a book about origami and how to make figures, you can even become the hero in a far away country. You can help others who don’t have what you have. You know that your little brothers and sisters and you little cousins and nieces and nephews will love to have you read Junior Rabbit to them and even Loony the Loon to them. baby reading a bookThey will laugh at the funny sounds you make while they imagine the story you are reading to them. So, let’s be sure that reading a book a day is on our list of fun things to do this Summer.

MEMORIAL DAY

Happy Memorial Day

Guys,

While we were having fun barbecuing, eating watermelon, and hotdogs, and hamburger grilled outside, and drinking our favorite drinks and playing yesterday, it was such fun. But do you know that it was because of the meaning of this day, Memorial Day, that we could have such fun. So let’s see what makes it so special:

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

So, remember to thank God for all those men and women who served in this great country’s military so that we can have fun on Memorial Day.

SPECIAL FRIENDS ARE THE BEST!

Hello Guys,

I love this picture because it shows a little kid, laughing and very happy. She’s excited about her life, even though she is in a wheelchair. That’s great isn’t it. Just like you and me she likes reading, video games, her own cell phone, ice cream, the movies, sports and more. I am sure she likes to have a couple of really good friends to sit at lunch with her in the lunch room and call her and just to have fun with. 

In fact we all like those things. So, the next time while you’re in school or at the mall or outside playing or even at the community swimming pool and you see a special child, whether in a wheel chair or walking with braces on his or her legs or maybe even unable to communicate regular, like we know it, think to yourself: “Hey, there’s someone who might be a really good friend to me and I can be a really good friend to him or her.” 

Let me tell you, special friends are the best.  Talk to you later.

JENNY WHITE AT BOOK SIGNING EVENT MARCH, 2017

Hello Guys,

I have to share with you all about my latest book signing that I did in March. It was so much fun. There were a lot of children and their parents there at the book signing and I sold some of my book to some very excited kids. You may not think that in March someone would buy a book about Christmas, but they did.  I was so very happy. too.

Boy! I just had a thought? If you continue doing wonderfully in school, reading and learning all you can, I am sure that I will see your names on some books that you’ve written, too. That’s exciting. In fact I know that you all will write books and that you’ll share them with others. Your books don’t have to be like mine, but they have to come from your heart, remember that. One day, I’ll be able to come to your book signing and buy a specially autographed copy of your book. I am looking forward to that. Until next time remember: READING OPENS UP THE WORLD TO YOU!
