The following was posted on Micki Peluso’s blog.  I found it so interesting and informative I had to post it for all of you that are following me.

Micki has written a book about her daughter being killed by a drunk driver and I strongly urge you to buy it or read it on Kindle, and then kindly leave her a good review.  She is a great writer and FRIEND.

Thank you Micki.

Let’s get this going properly – A Freebooter’s Fantasy Almanac is now being proof-read by my long-suffering sister and I’m hoping to have it hitting the cyber shelves by the 1st of June with good luck and a following wind!
So high time for me to get started with populating the book blog before launch date and to release those tasty little snippets to tantalise and tease the ‘marketplace’. Nice baby steps for now, but I will be putting up a Jano and Silen gallery on here – now that elleth has been unleashed upon an unsuspecting world there’ll be no stopping her, so this is the place where she can strut her stuff…

I love picture books, and I often write about them.  In my post, Top 10 Reasons Picture Books Rock, I touch upon the importance of continuing to read aloud to your child even AFTER he/she is able to read independently. Please note that although children may be ready for early readers and chapter books, I implore parents to continue reading picture books with/to your children. There is no better way to connect at the end of a hectic day than to get lost in a picture book together. This ritual is one you can continue well into their teen years (yes, really, I promise).
