My friend Book man is here to talk to you.
Hi there fellow readers. If there is one really good habit that we should have, it the habit of reading. The Library is the best place to be. If you go to the library, you’ll see people sitting reading the newspapers and even magazines. You’ll see people buying older books and even videos to take home and watch.
Now you might say, but I have an iPad or a tablet or a cell phone. THAT’S GREAT! You can read on your tablet and phone, too. I know one thing for sure. Whatever you do, and even if you are at home, take your phone and pull up a story, download it and read it. Guys, remember reading opens up the world to you. So, LET’S ROCK!
I have been so very busy so far this Summer. I’ve been to career days a various schools before they let out for the summer vacation, I’ve published my 4th book. You can see the cover right here. And, I am working on book number 5.
It’s good to get a little time to connect with you again. I want to hear how you’ve been doing so far this summer. So, let me hear from you about all the wonderful things you’ve been doing. Just in case you can’t think of fun things to do they summer, take a look:
Click on the book cover above, and you can purchase my newest book. You’ll love it, too.
Wow, it’s time for me go. But remember, take time to keep it simple and read a book. Bye Now
Enjoy your Halloween. But here’s a reminder of having a safe Halloween, too.
A few days before Halloween, sit down with your kids and help them map out the route for trick-or-treating. Choose an area that:
- Is safe
- Has sidewalks
- Is a self-contained neighborhood
- Is well-lit
- Is highly populated, and
- Is familiar to them
Let them know, too, that you’ll be expecting them to stay in the area where they said they’d be.
- Never to enter the home of someone they don’t know—even when they’re with a friend.
- Not to take rides from anyone without your permission.
- What to do if they’re approached by someone in a car or by a group of older kids looking to stir up trouble.
- No to eat their loot until after they get home and you have a chance to inspect it. (This is a tough one, but it’s still the safest route.)
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….
Boy, 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. They 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.
Talk to you later! I’m on my way to a family reunion!
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.
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.
