Well guys, it has been such a whirlwind of events and activities for me. But we are almost four whole weeks into the new year and I am so glad!
Got a few questions:
Have you continued to read and visit the library?
Have you become a true friend to a special needs student at your school?
Is your GPA – grade point average a “B” or better?
Are you reading to your little brother, sister, cousin, niece or nephew?
You gotta keep reading if you want to open up the world for yourself.
Special needs kids are just people like you and me. They love friends and laughing just like you do. Please sit with them in class and even at lunch.
It doesn’t make any sense to go to school, do class work, have homework, projects, presentations and do speeches to get any grade below a “B”. You were made by God, and a “C” is just average. Blah! You are so much more than average!
If you read to the little kids in your life, you’ll help them to learn to read better and you’ll see that they, too, will be lovers of books.
So guys, remember that I am rooting for you. I want to hear from you, too. Besides my own books, here are a couple of book to read to kids. Talk to you later.
I am so excited! So, if you are local, I would love to see you there. I would make sure you get a personal autographed copy of the book, when you purchase it. We could even take pictures together.
Here’s the information about my book signings. Oh yes, before I forget, make sure you are reading every day between 15 and 20 minutes. Remember, too, that reading opens up the world to you. Gotta go guys!

Reading does indeed open up the world to you. So don’t stop reading now. If you go to the library to read, take time and read in your bedroom, or in the living room in the big chair, keep on reading. Don’t stop reading now, keep it up. Look at some of my friends reading and participating in school. They know the importance of reading.
Well, it’s been a few weeks since school has started and I am sure that there has been some homework and projects given to you already. I just have a question. Has it been hard to get back into the study mode since the summer is over? I can understand that. Here’s a couple of tips to get you back into the good habits you had in school that got you those high test scores and good grades at card markings:
When you get home from school, if you have any homework or reading do it immediately, because you’ve been in school and study mode already for the day. Keep it up and soon, you’ll be finished with your work and can relax and do other things.
Keep a list of your school work on a white board or a cork board in your room or even on the refrigerator at home. That way you won’t forget important work that has to be turned in.
Make going to the library part of your week or weekend. It keeps your mind working well and you will be at the right place to get the answers you need.
You’re not too young for this next tip: Keep a list of all of your daily activities and check them off as you complete them. (get ready for school the night before, make your lunch and put in the fridge, get your instrument and backpack ready and put them where you won’t forget them in the morning; get your gym clothing and shoes cleaned and ready for physical ed.) All of these things will get you back into the right mode of studying and organization. And you can’t help but be a winner! Talk to you later.
Here are two of my books that I wrote. Mom and Dad can get them on Amazon.com
Boy, oh boy! The Library is a fun place to spend a day. Why they have hundreds of books for toddlers, and elementary school students, teens and adults. I went there a couple of days myself and I got a book and went into the reading room. There were so many kids and adults just sitting around reading. They have a computer room, where you can get on the computer and do lots of things, like check your email and write letters and you can print them out.
They even have some authors who wrote children’s books come and sit with the kids on certain days and read the books they written and have a good fun talk with the kids. I had the chance to go and read my book to some librarians one day. I was so excited! If you are looking for answers to some questions you need answered, go to the library and ask the librarians to help you out. They are the best at helping anyone find what they need.
Ask Mom and Dad to make it part of your summer vacation to take a trip to the library so you can enjoy all the music, books, movies and other fun activities they have. See you there. Remember, reading opens the world up to you. Talk to you later.
Have you been having fun so far this summer. I am sure that many of you have already been to the park, on picnics, on vacation visiting family and friends, in the house on rainy days playing board games, and just outside romping and playing. That’s great! I have been doing those things, too.
Just remember that all year around the library is open and full of fun books, cds and dvds that you can take home and enjoy. So, remember that if you want to increase your learning, keep it simple and read a book.
This is my friend Jean. She loves to read. Just look at her go. Hey, make going to the Library and reading 20 minutes a day part of your summer vacation.
Hi guys, I’m Junior Rabbit, Jenny friend. I do a lot of things with my friends. We play soccer, tag, tell each other stories and other things. We do all of our activities outside. But there is one thing that I really want to share with you that you can do outside or inside: YOU CAN READ!
Now just before you say that reading isn’t fun, think about this. When you read you can enter right into the story that you are reading. You can be on the sidelines looking at the story as it unfolds, or you can be the one telling the story as you read, you can even become a participant in the story! What I am saying is that you can see yourself riding on the stagecoach as it crosses the country to take you west to cattle country. Why you can even hide out on a ship as it crosses the ocean to go to a distant land. You can imagine yourself helping to rescue someone from danger in the pages of a book. You can be the king or the princess or the brave soldier who slays a dragon and saves a village! Boy, oh boy, when you read the world opens up to you. So, make sure to visit the world this summer in the pages of a book at your local library.
The book that I’m reading now is about my friend Loony. He’s having a time helping our other friends out because people have put so much garbage in the lake where they all live. Oh, gotta go guys, Loony needs my help.
