Today I received a photo from a mother in Missouri, showing their reactions to receiving BARNEY & LEXI: LOST IN LAWRENCEVILLE and I was stirred with many positive emotions!
When I saw this, my heart swelled up and I was humbled! This is why I do what I do! Two fine young readers, living in another state, Barney & Lexi in hand and READING!! I want every child to have the opportunity to read and escape into the wonders that books can offer!
I was pumped to see the expressions of young “Jimmy” and “Kiaya” as their mother captioned this photo with “They sat right down and wanted to read it!” Jimmy has a smile and Kaiya is all focused and both of those looks are completely awesome!!
Photos like this are worth their weight in gold and remind me that I am on my way to becoming a full-time writer and find the success I am driving for. That success: put books in youngsters hands!
Have a wonderful second half of your weekend everybody!!
