FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hartland, Maine (January 28, 2013)

GOOD NEWS: There’s a new book out that will inspire kids to meet challenges with patience and persistence.

“I can say without hesitation that [AMAZING MATILDA] is a well written book filled with excitement and adventure.” (dwgodby) Read the full review at http://dwgodby.blogspot.com/2012/07/amazing-matilda-monarchs-tale.html

Matilda becomes discouraged when she is unable to fly during the early stages of her metamorphosis. But, this ‘Amazing Monarch’ never gives up on her dream. Unlike her friends, Matilda doesn’t want to leap onto ledges or bound across fields, she only wants to fly. Matilda’s friends laugh at her because she doesn’t have any wings. They wonder: How can a creature without wings ever hope to fly? While Matilda progresses from egg to butterfly, her friends recall how they felt before they were able to do all of the things they had dreamed of doing. Encouraged by her friends, Matilda learns that if she keeps trying, she can do anything that she really wants to do.

Stevens says, “Matilda’s story is everyone’s story. Meeting the everyday challenges of life at every stage of life is no easy task. Matilda and her friends encourage readers and listeners to meet those challenges. Whether we read this children’s book ourselves or listen to it while sitting on a loved one’s lap, AMAZING MATILDA is a story that never grows old or gets outgrown.”

AMAZING MATILDA: A Monarch’s Tale
NOW AVAILABLE for Your Kindle/eReader or PC.

AMAZING MATILDA makes her debut on YouTube

AMAZING MATILDA: A Monarch’s Tale  is my latest children’s picture book. I wrote the story when I was teaching fourth and fifth grade students. I wanted to inspire my students and my grandchildren, who were young at the time, to meet their challenges with patience and persistence. MATILDA helped me do just that!

Watch the show and let me know what you think. Here’s the preview link to view MATILDA:

What are some of your favorite children’s books?


Any of Dr. Seuss’s are favorites of mine! Seuss made language FUN and INTERESTING! As a grandmother and retired teacher (grades 4-8), I wanted all of my students and all of the children in my family to love language and literature. I also had a MOM who read to me every day when I was young, and Saturday jaunts to the local library were exciting and fun.

I love to read to kids whenever I get the chance. It’s also great to listen to them read to me.

Statistics show that literacy among American children is on the decline, but there are so many simple things we can do to turn that trend around:

READ to and with the children in our lives.

  • Choose, and help them select, books that will be fun, interesting and exciting.
  • Talk about books (before and after each reading)
  • Model by reading regularly yourself and sharing with the kids.
  • Set at least 15 minutes aside each day for family read alouds!

I would love to hear from YOU… SHARE SOME OF YOUR OWN IDEAS!
