About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Our new favorite children's book and meeting Kevin Hawke

I have an addiction to children's books.  I would go broke if I bought all the books that I wanted to.  We were recently in a tourist gift shop and I came across the book "The Wicked Big Toddlah".  I knew it was a winner and went home and bought it off Ebay because I'm cheap like that.  After reading it to Bradley the first time, it became our new favorite.  We read it daily and sometimes twice a day.  The story is a lot of fun and the illustrations are fabulous!  I never heard of Kevin Hawkes before reading this book.  But I'm a huge fan now and will begin building a new collection of his books!

A week after we bought The Wicked Big Toddlah, my local library announced that Kevin Hawkes would be coming to read to the children at story time.  I couldn't believe it!  To say I was star struck is an understatement.  I loved having the opportunity to meet Kevin and he's a great storyteller!  The kids and even adults such as myself were mesmerized with his storytelling abilities.  Bradley was able to get his copy of The Wicked Big Toddlah signed by Kevin.  I'll be wrapping that book in bubble wrap so nothing happens to it.

Be sure to check out some of Kevin's other books he has authored and/or illustrated.  You can out the titles here.
