What Will It Take to Get You To Bed?

One of the biggest challenges at the Bouncing Baby Farm is getting the animals to bed, especially on lovely summer evenings. Goats, ducks, and chickens simply do not cooperate. It takes so much time to say “goodnight” that an owl informs the owner that it will soon be dawning a new day. Regardless of critter shenanigans, all is well at the Bouncing Baby Farm. This delightful, fun poem will entertain kids and parents alike as a go-to bedtime story before they say, “Goodnight!”

Get to Bed! is a children’s picture book for ages 0-7 and their parents.

Best Friends Bring Out Our Best

Wrens are born to sing! So, what do you do when you are a wren who can only squeak? Poor little Wren Three had this very problem. Though Mamma Wren and her other siblings, Wren One and Wren Two, loved her very much, Wren Three could not sing like they could. One day, Wren Three makes a new friend: Picco, the piccolo, and they soon share their talents with each other. Will Wren Three ever be able to sing? What could possibly turn Wren Three’s squeak into a song? Perhaps true friendship holds the key to success.

Picco and Wren Three is a children’s picture book for ages 0-7 and their parents.

May Book Signing at Lyons Library was a Fun Success

The book signing of both, The Pond of Reflection and The Hyrax Song, held at the Lyons Library, Saturday, May 21st, was a fun gathering. Not only were books sold at 15%-20% off, an additional 15% was donated to our partnership, the Lyons Vet Clinic, to their charity fund for fire-victim families for vet care of their pets.

It was a win-win for everyone, and a wonderful time. In addition to all this gift-giving from the event, 10% of the book signing income will go to support famine relief efforts around the world.

Not a bad way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon!

Thanks again to the Lyons Regional Library who provided the space for the signing, as well as the Lyons Vet Clinic, the Basketful Relief Project’s partnership for the event.
