Author, Buddy and BLOGGER!!

Today I want to introduce you to a special friend
who is a gifted writer, author, teacher, speaker,
and now a BLOGGER, too!!!
Her name is Jessica, and she just started blogging
a few days ago. Please drop by her blog to say
"Hi" and to welcome her to blogland!!
Her blog is Jewels For The Journey and she has
already completed a few posts that are
definitely worth the read!!
NOW, let me tell you about the children's book
she wrote and self-published.
It is titled Grandpa's Magical Accordian, and is
absolutely delightful!! If you have young children or
grandys this would be a wonderful gift or addition
to Grandma's book basket!!

The charming illustrations were done by a local
artist in watercolor, and combined with the
wonderful accordian music CD, played by Jessica's
talented hubby, make this imaginative
story just leap off the pages!!!

The magic happens when the grandchildren
imagine travelling to different countries via
their Grandpa's accordian music. Such fun!

I own this book and highly recommend it!!
If you would like to listen to the music
and order the book, you can
visit her website

I hope you all have a great day!!
You add so much to mine!!

Love and Hugs,

    Looks like a great book - I am always on the lookout for great books for my grandbaby. Gotta create a love for learning early right? I see that you are a homeschool mom - I did it for years and LOVED IT! I long for those days now that they are gone. It was such an awesome experience to be able to share with my kids.
