As the literary agent and publicist for my wife, Lynn Schiffhorst, I thought I would use this post to announce, to parents,grandparents and others who like to read to children, that she has published several new "read-aloud" stories on Kindle. You may find on her Amazon page something inexpensive as a gift for a child in your family. There are many titles to choose from.
These include two stories about a little wind that lives at the North Pole and plays tricks on people: "Gusty Wants More Time" and "Gusty Plays his Tricks." Gusty, of course, is the little wind (a challenge for any illustrator).
Several other books feature Giggle, a little ghost who goes to school (she's in the 4th grade) and enjoys helping people. This week, a reviewer, Jaclyn Bartz (author of The Retired Tooth Fairy) wrote this about Giggle Goes to the Moon, a collection of three stories:
"These sweet stories are a great addition to any child's bookshelf, or, in this case, Kindle library. Lynn Schiffhorst tells each tale in a precise, fast-paced manner. . . a well-executed, well-crafted work."
The full review by Ms. Bartz is at jmbartz.blogspot.com/2014/08/book-review-giggle-goes-to-the-moon-other.html. The reviewer notes the positive attitude toward a disabled child in one of these Giggle stories.
Another reviewer on Amazon had this to say about Lynn's book, "A Cat and Mouse Christmas":
A lovely story to add to this magical season!
If my followers and/or their friends are thinking about giving books to children in the coming months--especially books to be read to children--I hope they will consider some of Lynn Schiffhorst's special Kindle editions, which require a smartphone, Ipad, or Kindle. Most are priced at 99 cents.
All are listed on her Amazon.com page.
