Chocolate Bunny - A Silly Poem for Easter

He sits so straight,  with that blank stare
Does he not know? Does he not scare?

Can he not sense the danger so near?
Is he so brave that he feels no fear?

He makes no attempt to get away.
I'm certain he'll be easy prey.

I pounce. I have him. I bite off an ear!
The first chocolate victim of Easter this year.

The New Life of Easter - A Picture Book

Happy Easter!

Our picture book, The New Life of Easter, will be free all day Wed. March 13.

This book describes the resurrection to little children. The concept of resurrection is hard for adults to wrap our minds around and children are sure to have questions this time of year.

Our book uses a chick hatching from an egg, a caterpillar emerging as a butterfly and a seed growing into a plant as natural examples to explain the concept oft the resurrection.

We hope you enjoy our book and have a blessed Easter Season.

Charlie Chooses - A Jake Dog Fable

Our newest fable stars two raccoons, Charlie and Jimmy. They are moving away from their parents to begin life on their own, and it is an exciting time as they prepare for their first winter.

Their parents raised them to make good choices but now they have to make their own decisions. How will they respond when they are faced with tough decisions?  Will they take shortcuts that may jeopardize their ability to survive the long cold winter, or lead to other danger?

This fable teaches children about the importance of making good choices and understanding that the easy way is not always the best way. Charlie and Jimmy know what they should do, but sometimes it is hard to make good choices when you are faced with a decision. We hope this fable helps kids understand the importance of making good decisions every day.

Charlie Chooses has three original illustrations and can be read as a bedtime story to little ones or read independently by older children. To purchase Charlie Chooses on Amazon, CLICK HERE.

Here, Charlie is in a tree. Did something scare him, or is he looking for something?

We would love your feedback on Charlie Chooses!
