What a great time Wyatt and I had at the Home School Expo in Marietta Georgia!! We met parents and kids from all over the country. I met a mom from Charlotte, North Carolina whose daughter had been given a Wyatt book by her grandmother, who also lives in Charlotte. Isn’t the internet wonderful? Wyatt has traveled to places and met with children that I didn’t even know! Wyatt and I shared our booth with author Vicki Sewell who wrote the Magnificent Sprinkles story. You can see her in the picture below sharing her story with a dad who later bought the book for his daughter. We gave away a basket of books and other goodies. The winner was Tiffany Richardson from Opelika, Alabama. Congratulations Tiffany!!
in addition to sharing the Wyatt story with lots of parents, I also taught a class for parents on DISCovering your Personality Style and the Personality Style of Your Child. It was really great fun as parents learned all about the secret fuel for motivating their child and how to work in their strengths. If you belong to a group that would like for me to present a similar workshop please let me know. You can use the contact me form on this page.
Behind the Scenes on Wyatt’s Newest Adventure
We are hard at work on the fourth Wyatt book, Wyatt the Wonder Dog Learns About Giving, which is set around the Christmas season. In this book, Wyatt learns the meaning of the word generosity. It’s a very timely lesson for everyone!
Here we are hard at work on the layout and planning of the book. Pam Gardner the illustrator has been busily creating some new illustrations. We are all excited to see her latest interpretation of the story.
I’d love to share a preview of the book with you! Click on the free book tab and download the latest version. You can even listen to an audio file!
The last two weeks I’ve been visiting second grade classes and talking about writing a book. Students at this age are not shy about asking questions. Sometimes they ask questions I haven’t even considered. Here’s a few samples: How old is Wyatt? When is his birthday? Is there going to be another Wyatt book? Could you put a lot of the stories together and make a chapter book?
Then there is the interesting but irrelevant information: I have a friend named Wyatt or My room is messier than Wyatt’s room.
Overall though, I’m very impressed with the thoughtfulness and the creativity of the questions. I do believe there may be some future writers in our midst!
Don’t you just love this guy? Doesn’t he make you smile? Let me introduce you to…Wyatt the Wonder Dog who is always wondering about something. He is the main character of my children’s book which will be PUBLISHED SOON! Stay tuned for more about his adventures, trials and tribulations!
