Welcome to my blog, Lilacs in Children, where we grow children with character!
Today, I have a special author who has written several books that I know you’re going to love.
Her name is Traci Howell. Let’s hear from her…
I currently live in Missouri with my husband, Charles and two Labrador Retrievers, Dakota North and October May. We will be welcoming our first little one into the family around March. I am a fan of hiking, the outdoors, crafting and quilting, reading, and of course, writing!
I get my inspiration by everything around me. I grew up in a small town in Western Nebraska. I happen to be the youngest in my family, so I grew up watching my older sister’s interactions, as well as listening to everything going on around me. I also grew up listening to bedtime stories that my dad would read to me or make up for me. My mom was constantly giving me paper to write down stories or ideas or to draw my characters when I was younger. Today, I have a notebook I keep in my purse for that random idea that pops into my head. I love observing the world around me and taking in the small things that others may not even notice.
Gus’ Big Adventure is about Ruby and her little dog, Gus. They love going on adventures together. In this particular story, their adventure takes them to The Zoo. They get to see all the animals and enjoy the noises that go along with it until they come to the giraffes. Gus gets so excited he decides to take this adventure one step further by going into the giraffe pen causing a big stir within everyone watching. He talks to the giraffes and gets to take a ride on the little giraffe’s back before the Zoo Personnel come to get him. Ruby, Ruby’s mother, and Gus all learn that adventures at the Zoo require dogs to be on a leash.
Gus’ Big Adventure can be found on Amazon
Rudy is fun story about Santa and his reindeer. Rudy takes a look at what happens when Santa’s original reindeer, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen, and Rudolph become too old to continue pulling Santa’s sleigh for him. We meet all of their children and watch as they learn what it takes to become a team and pull Santa’s sleigh. We watch as Rudy, Rudolph’s son, learns to take his place at the front of Santa’s sleigh through all the lessons they have with Santa.
