Are you ready for some “Rosie?”
Bring the kids/grand kids and join me for two fun events this month:
TurtleFest in Juno Beach on 4/5 and Earth Day at Boca Raton Childen’s Museum on 4/26.
We are beginning to line up April events for ‘Rosie’s Song’… if you don’t have a copy yet, stop by, say ‘hello” and buy a copy for the little one(s) in your life:
Earth Day at Boca Raton Children’s Museum
Saturday, April 26 from 10 am- noon
We will be doing two readings, so bring the young ones!
And of course, the book may be purchased online at Amazon.com.
Some nice press for “Rosie’s Song” illustrator, Deb LaFogg…
Deb LaFogg and Mary Kate Leming read “Rosie’s Song” during a special Ocean Ridge Garden Club event on Feb. 10… Don’t you love the beach towels?

Hope to see you there!
Received the nicest note from Anne Gibb, the former Head of School at Gulf Stream School in Gulf Stream, FL. She writes:
“Rosie’s Song” is a delightful book! Such charming wording and lively story — Rosie’s adventures with her aptly named seven brothers are exciting – The BIG storm – the boy who acts responsibly and caringly and who does the right thing – the “family” message is important, too.
Creative, colorful, active illustrations by Deborah LaFogg Docherty add to the presentation.
The book is a winner, which I’ll happily read to Benjamin School four year olds this term.
I hope there is a sequel planned!
