Hot off the presses

My publisher, Thomas Nelson, just called to let me know that my newest two books - Romp, Stomp, Waddle Home! and Passport Into The Wild - were awarded gold medals in the animal kingdom category for the 2009 Mom's Choice Awards® for their family-friendly adventures. I am honored that the judges from the Mom’s Choice Awards enjoyed my WILD animal stories. Passport Into The Wild was also awarded a 2008 Family Choice Award in the children's book category.

Passport Into the Wild is an educational adventure for readers, as they travel with me to all seven continents to meet the animals that live there. The book’s unique format includes fold out pages with beautiful pictures from my adventures along with a passport and stickers for readers to document their journey. Kids will love seeing the world with their own eyes and experiencing the adventure of world travel first-hand.

Romp, Stomp, Waddle Home! is an equally exciting adventure for younger readers. When a hippo ends up in the pool and a zebra finds his way to the soccer field, I need the readers help getting all the mixed-up animals back to their correct habitats. With real photographs and movable magnet pieces, children will instantly engage in learning the appropriate places for wild animals to make their homes.
