Fengiggly

I'm very excited about my new book, Fengiggly.
It was so much fun to write!
The illustrator did a marvelous job on the pictures.

Summary:
Kevin just moved in across the street from Max. He's not your typical boy. He knows how to talk like a space alien.

Max wants to find out more about Kevin and his secret language.

Can space alien talk create a friendship between new neighbors?
And who is Fengiggly?
Can they all become friends?

(Sneak preview below.)





The book will be released sometime in August 2017. Plus, I will be making FREE Comprehension Question and Answer Sticks to go along with the book. It will be available on Amazon and also on Teachers Pay Teachers. I'll keep you posted.

Have a Fengiggly day!

FREE - Playful Prompts For Writing & Sharing

I've been busy, busy writing, finishing up my next children's book that will be released this fall. I also like encouraging children to write. So I have written, Playful Prompts For Writing & Sharing, because children love to tell their stories.

Writing and sharing their writing is a perfect way to encourage children to communicate their thoughts with each other and with the adults in their lives.
