Tomfoolery 13 Yule Lads Of Iceland and what do you get? A lot of Tomfoolery and Fun I’ll bet! The Thirteen Yule Lads of Iceland are much different than the Santa Clause we know. They are mischievous, troublesome, funny, and full of curiosity. Much like James, so when James visits them in their home with Syvok, almost gets eaten by their mother and is taunted by the Christmas Cat, they know right where they are going to come when they visit town the 13 days of Christmas. James finds out that the Yule Lads make the noisiest house guests ever when they come to stay. They clang pots, slam doors, and even bring their own lamb. However amidst all the ruckus what they create most of all is joy and fun for the holidays.

 This is  a book you and your kids will want to read all the time and at Christmas Time. It was my favorite story when we lived in Iceland. I add a different spin to the old legend.

Born to be Wild Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,

I was looking at music and came across Steppenwolfs’s song Born to be wild. Listen to it. We are Born to be wild.

Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way”

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

I was recently adopted for Adopt a Author Event on FB. Brittany The-BookNerd Carrigan, She has set up a 3 month event on Facebook. She is a blast to work with and helps us authors. Here is the event page if you would like to join. Wendy and Rachel’s Promotion- Palooza

I have an event February 13th for our local Festival of the Arts at the Library. It is an interesting event, for an entire month we get to explore different types of art.

I am a guest speaker to discuss children’s literature.  As I was writing my presentation I realized children need to be wild. They were born for adventure.

When I wrote my first book James Saves the Moon. We were in the middle of a wonderful fun adventure. We were living in Iceland. My son was 7 learning in Icelandic. I was keeping him up on his English. He is a gifted child especially when it came to being a gifted speaker and adventure. He was a early talker and storyteller. He was speaking in full sentences by the time he was two. Today at 15 he is still gifted in speech. His command of language is unbelievable to me. While I was continuing  his education at home to read in English. We discovered many books were boring no adventure. We did discover Tintin. My son loved those books. All about adventure and he could read them both in English and Icelandic. On my last trip to Holland, I picked up a couple  that were in Dutch. Now he is exploring music. My twin daughters are more the hands on explorers. They want activity, risk takers. I find them on roofs, up trees, swing set poles. They have little fear of the unknown. They were climbing mountains, cliffs, soccer nets at two. I could not have blinds or drapes in their windows when they were toddlers. I could not have open windows either.

I think this why a little place in my brain was unlocked with adventures, when my son one day said . “Look Mom the moon is on the mountain. I am going to touch it tonight. We all ran to the window in his bedroom to look.

“Let me tell you it was on the mountain, huge and it seemed we could feel the moon beams shooting through us.  I had a dream that night. The next day I wrote the first draft. Since then  I have had many dreams and written many things. The hard part is focusing long enough to finish a story. I love having this part of the brain free to explore , dream, share the adventures that were locked up for so many years.

The most important thing for a child is being able to go on an adventure. Children’s books should have an adventure no matter what. They want to explore touch, feel, take apart, figure things out as if always on a adventure. I think the most gifted educators are the ones to take a child on an adventure every day in class no matter what the subject is. Let’s, allow children be born to be wild it is there gift to us and our future. Exploration and Adventure is a good thing.

My children’s books are all about adventure my reviews and private messages have brought me pure joy when mothers tell me, my goodness my kids could not put it down. My son wants to ride the dragon. My child with ADHD or Autism was captivated with your story.  Kids need to let their imaginations fly. The illustrations have a dragon on every picture. I am lucky I have worked with two wonderful illustrators. Jim Weidman and Kelly Murray. I came to Anchor Group Publishing with my own illustrators and my poor grammar skills. They embraced my adventures. Working with Anchor Group and the authors of Anchor Group has been a wonderful adventure. All the authors are so talented and take you on adventures. The lil anchors (kids authors) have  fun adventures. We help each other, encourage each other to be our best.  Adventure and Exploring is in my opinion the trail to happiness.

ENJOY YOUR ADVENTURE,  WB

AG Book Club Adventure~ Golden and Ethan’s My Life with Autism

Standard

Good Day Folks,

I am having a grand adventure at Anchor Group Publishing book club. This month  we had two books to read, enjoy and report on.

Ethan's Story My Life with Autism Just click on the cover to take you to the amazon link.

The first book is a Children’s book called Ethan’s Story: My Life with Autism

This book is written from an child’s point of view and Ethan did a fabulous job  relating his story.  The book is colorful and fun. While at the same time teaches us the struggles and misunderstanding of children with autism. My girls read the book and thought it was quite interesting. They have an autism program at their school. And at times would come home and ask why did a AI child to this or that. After reading the book and being exposed properly at school they now have a better understanding and realize these children have the same struggles as they do in school. They  just have a different way it is portrayed in the public.  I found this read insightful, fun and interesting. And Yes Ethan we are the way we are and its a good thing we all have special gifts and struggle. I am purchasing this book for our schools Autistic program at the school. I hope the school will incorporate the book at the school and use it as a learning tool.You can keep up with Ethan’s adventures on Facebook  at http://www.facebook.com/EthansStoryMyLifeWithAutism

 

Golden - Monika Pardon The Second book we were given to read was Golden by Monika Pardon

Just click on the cover for link to amazon.

 I loved this book. The story begins with a young gal attending her Grandmother’s funeral. Everyone is against her for some reason, she cannot trust anyone. Then while in the woods she has an encounter with three bears. Yes three bears. She has been changed into something and finds out how important she is to the world or worlds. A lot for this young lady to take on she does not really know who to turn to or trust. There is a handsome young man of course but is he on her side or her enemies. Not to give away anymore of the story.  I recommend this good read. It was fun and a clever way to find out what happens after an encounter with three bears in the woods. Down load today you will enjoy the adventure. You can keep up with the author Monika Pardon on facebook at

Wonderous Wednesday Children Adventures! Petal the Owl by Joy Findlay

Standard

51R%2BBIXMXkL__BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-59,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Good Day Folks,

Today our Wondrous Wednesday Adventure is Petal the Owl by Joy Findlay. It is a delightful nature adventure. Your preschooler will adore Petal the Owl, as she investigates her surroundings and discovers how wonderful nature is. All five of these books are a fun.  You and your child will learn with Petal about summer, winter, nature, colors and counting. The illustrations are vibrant and full of color, patterns and shapes. It will engage you and child in conversation of things they see in the illustrations. I think preschoolers would have you read these books over and over. Early readers would enjoy reading these books too. I highly recommend this compilation of Petal the Owl books. You also can buy them individually on amazon.com. Take a look at other Findlay books as well. Just click on Cover and it will take you to the link on amazon.

A little about the author Joy Findlay ~

“As a fulltime mother of two gorgeous pre-schoolers, a career in Television and Video Production was no longer an option. Having taught the basics of the Moving Image, it was just a matter of transitioning those same skills over to a static medium that was creative and flexible enough to work from home.
Kiki (3) and Zoozoo (4) provide the inspiration and direction for most of the children’s eBooks created under Findlay Books. Their thirst for learning and adventure never ceases to amaze me.
So now, I write and illustrate a line of children’s eBooks especially for my two squidlettes. In the hopes that others actually like them too and would like to let me know, we have set up a website http://www.findlaybooks.com and a facebook page http://www.facebook.com/findlaybooks

Joy Findlay lives in beautiful New Zealand with her husband, her two children and their rescue cat ‘Buddy’.
