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!
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!
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 will be doing a book signing for my book Junior Rabbit Learns About Christmas, which is out right now. You can purchase it on Amazon.com.
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!

- Wilder Library, 7140 E. Seven Mile Road, Detroit, MI 48234. I’ll be there beginning at 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
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.
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.
Well, it won’t be long until the Summer vacation is here. How many of you did great in school? What I mean is how many of you got A’s and B’s in your classes. I hope all of you did. But I want to tell you something, please, please, please take time and get to the Library where you can check out at least one book on let’s say, social studies and read it, so that you’ll be able to keep up when you get back in school. Here’s a little quiz for you all. If you need to, ask Mom and Dad or big brother or big sister to help you with it. Send the answers back to me in the comment section below and I’ll check it for you.
- What city do you live in?
- How old is the city that you live in? (you can find out this answer at the Library)
- What state do you live in?
- What county do you live in?
- Do you like the Library?
Well guys, I’ll be waiting to hear from you all. Until next time, remember, “keep it simple and read a book”.
