 I have a blog where I review books for children. Carla's Cloud Catastrophe is a funny and imaginative book for children ages 4-8. Carla is missing her birthday party because the clouds are falling from the sky into the town where she lives. Can you imagine if that reallly happened on your birthday? What would you do? It seems silly but oh what fun stomping through the clouds might be.

If mom or dad wants to read more about this fun book by children's author Beth Bence Reinke one click on the link will take them right to it.

It is with renewed interest and passion that I am pursueing writing even more books for children. Please check back often for the progress I am making and maybe even some book signings you may want to attend. My first signing will be at Riley's Childrens Hospital here in Indianapolis....
I have changed the template for the website to fit our new home and where I now find inspiration for my writing...in  the  hills of Brown County Indiana. The beauty here is spectacular in a woodsy way, giving visitors the feel of  coming home. Log cabins, small town hospitality, and...

Welcome Friends.

My Favorite Part of a New School Year

My favorite part of starting a new school year or a new writing project is gathering my supplies. I love notepads, sticky notes, fun pens, and goofy paper to write my stories. What is your favorite part of starting a new school year? Is it the new teacher, making new friends, being in a new grade, or learning new things? If you really don't like school, is there one thing you can try this year to make it better? Write and let me know how your new school year is going? I would love to hear about it.

Puppy Update: We found good loving homes for 7 of the puppies so we only have 5 puppies left. Here is the math problem to represent the puppy count as of today.


We started out with 12 puppies       OR        We found homes for 7 puppies

We gave away 7 puppies                            Plus the 5 puppies we have left

How many puppies do we have left?            How many puppies did we start with?


 12                                                                                      7

- 7                                                                                     + 5

___                                                                                   _____

= 5                                                                                    =  12

 There is math in many activities of everyday living. And there is more than one way to solve a math problem.  Shopping, measuring for recipes, counting baseball cards, adding the days until school starts, and looking at the clock to see how long it is before dinner are all ways to use math and numbers. Where else do you use math, numbers, or counting in your daily routine?
