Hi, everyone!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to a special lady who writes children’s books that show what it’s like to be a child of a military parent.

Florenza Denise Lee, whose work has been compared to that of Wayne Dyer and Byron Katie, is a Radio Talk Show Host, Published Author, Transformation Speaker, Certified Life Coach, and Children’s Mindfulness Coach.

Although Florenza dabbled in poetry while in grade and middle school, she never considered herself a writer, until January 31, 2014, when she woke to write 12 books in just about an hour and a half.

Franky the Finicky Flamingo is Sporting a New Emblem on his Jacket

Mom's Choice Awards Honoring Excellence Emblem with a swish that looks like a parent holding a baby in its' arms shaped like a heart on a blue background

 

Hi everyone,

I have some great news to share!

Remember when I posted that Franky the Finicky Flamingo had been nominated for a Mom’s Choice Award?

Well, I told you I would let you know once I heard back and guess what? He won!!

Franky the Finicky Flamingo is now

the proud recipient of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award!!!

Franky the Finicky Flamingo picture book cover by Wanda Luthman and illustrated by Mara Reitsma showing Top Shelf Nomination Award and Mom's Choice Award emblems
Available on Amazon, only $2.99!

I’m so thrilled to have received this news!

You just never know when you give your precious baby (i.e.–book) to others who are going to pass judgement on it whether they are actually going to like it or not.

Here’s a link to the Press Release.

So, one down and two more to go.

You see the other emblem on the cover? That’s the Top Shelf Indie Book Award Nominee emblem. Franky has been nominated for that one too. I believe I’ll hear in September. And, of course, I’ll let you know once I know.

And Franky has also been nominated for the International Traditional and Independent Author Award (the same one that Little Birdie won a silver medal in). I believe I’ll hear the decision on Franky also in September. I’ll let you all know about this one too.

So, stay tuned!

Of course, if he places, I’ll be celebrating and if not, well, maybe you can help me drown my sorrows. I jest, it’s wonderful just to be nominated and hey, he’s already won one award!

Thank you for all your support on this author journey that I began just a mere 4 years ago. I have learned so much, met some awesome people in the industry, and have had more serendipitous moments than ever before in my life. I think that means I’m right where I’m supposed to be!

Oh, and let me just tease you here that the sequel to Franky the Finicky Flamingo is going to be coming out in late Sept/early Oct. It’s called Franky the Thirsty Flamingo. You’re going to love it!! It takes a little different twist than my usual books. I’m just going to leave it right there and tell you more about it later.

The Olivia Lauren Series of Children’s Books

Melissa Sue John, author of the Olivia books

 

Hi everyone,

Today, I’d like to introduce you to someone that I believe is making a difference in the world. Her name is Melissa-Sue John and I’m going to let her tell you about herself and her books…

My name is Melissa-Sue John. My primary motivation for writing books is to increase the diversity of characters in children’s books.  I want all children to be able to see characters that look like them. Representation matters! It is not just about skin color or race, but also culture, nationality, religion, weight, health, (dis)ability, and lived experiences. I have two daughters, Alyssa Simone and Olivia Lauren. Much of their childhood the characters they saw either in books or television did not look like them. This plagued me for over a decade. As a family, we decided to be part of the solution and we created a book series that had many diverse characters with my younger daughter, Olivia Lauren as the star!

Olivia Lauren John, a 10 year old that the Olivia books are written about

 

Olivia Lauren John is a ten-year old who loves to entertain and loved the spotlight since she could walk. When Olivia was 7 years old she started to model, act, and dance. During auditions, she met many people from different occupations such as casting directors, film directors, producers, sound engineers, hair and makeup artists, wardrobe artists, agents, and photographers. She went to school and told her friends about these different occupations and told me to write a book to teach kids about different careers. This is how Occupations A to Z was created.

 

 

Once Olivia started becoming noticeable on television and being featured in commercials, music videos and television shows, many people asked us how we got into the entertainment industry. Instead of saying it hundred times, we created a resource and told them about our simple ten step Guide to becoming an actor.

We visited London for a few months. Olivia told her classmates all about driving to the airport, taking the plane and riding in London cabs and double decker buses. This time she wanted to author a book about different types of transportation. So, Olivia Travels was born.

Most of Olivia’s acting and modeling gigs were in NY. In both industries clothing was important. However, NYC was rich in cultural diversity. Once we were walking from the park after a photo shoot and we passed Orthodox Jews and Muslim women. And we saw a little boy staring at the women in their hijabs. He asked his mother, “What is that woman wearing on her head?” The mother hushed him and told him not to stare. It gave us the idea that it was silly that we lived in a country filled with cultural and religious diversity, but things as simple as clothing weren’t taught in school. It gave us the idea to write a book called A Guide to the Things We Wear.

I am a psychology professor and a researcher by training. In my research, we teach the engineering design cycle to preschoolers using literature. Engineers are always looking to solve problems. One problem we have had prior to cellphones and emails was how long it took to get messages to one another.

Alyssa Simone, the older sister of Olivia John whose books Olivia are written about

 

My older daughter, Alyssa Simone and I wrote Olivia Connects to teach kids how communication devices have changed over time and the different ways people communicate if they cannot see, hear, or walk. Alyssa Simone is a brilliant 16 year old who enjoys art, playing instruments, running track, and learning languages. She is very instrumental to success, but prefers to work behind the scenes. She is helps in simplifying the language to be more age appropriate and gives ideas for how their illustrations should capture the text.

 

Overall, it is our personal experiences and our desire to increase diversity that have created these books. Our books are ideal for 6 to 12 year old children.

Things We Wear

My review of Things We Wear that I gave 5 stars!! ‘Things We Wear’ is a well-written, well-illustrated book that will help children and adults learn about other cultures and their type of dress as well as every day clothes such as pajamas and athletic wear. I especially like how the author explains what each person is wearing from the different cultures. This is what the world needs now as we need to learn more about each other and love and embrace each other in our differences. Again, as in another Olivia Lauren’s book, Elijah and His Invisible Friend,Elijah and His invisible friend (Madison and Elijah Book 1) there is a helpful glossary of terms used in the book. I think this book could be used by teachers as well as parents to help children learn more about other people.

Hello, everyone!

Today, I want to introduce you to a wonderfully creative and gifted children’s author that I had the privilege to meet at a book event recently, Sarah Ann Kinnear.

I talked to her about her inspiration and book concept and was blown away by her multi-faceted books from being beautifully illustrated by a woman who lives in Denmark (and Sarah flies to Denmark for vacation and has actually met her illustrator in person) to the fun adventure mystery stories told in a series of books to the puzzle piece that is included in each book that will ultimately be something a child can put together!!

More than your money’s worth is included in these wonderful books, plus the positive messages inside.

Now, let’s get started…

Little Pearl’s Reflection

Little Pearl’s Reflection is a children’s mystery adventure series of 7 books. At
the conclusion of each book there are 3 questions for children and adults to
discuss together, plus a surprise puzzle piece. Enter the contest to have YOUR

profit from sales is designated for helping children via children’s hospitals,
charities, schools, and Ronald McDonald Houses. Best of all – it’s fun and exciting
for all ages to read together!

On the eve of her 7th birthday, Little Pearl and her mother travel to a nearby
meadow and lie down side by side to watch the stars. Little Pearl falls asleep.
Suddenly she is awakened by a loud CRACK! When she opens her eyes, she sees
blue skies and no storm clouds – but she realizes that her mother is GONE! Little
Pearl decides to search for her lost mother by following the Old Winding River
around the Big Purple Mountain. Help Little Pearl search for her lost mother, Anna!

Do you have something you don’t like about yourself? Do your kids? Or your grandkids?

I bet we all do. I know I do. I have never really liked my thighs. They are rather large even back when I was an active competitive swimmer in high school.

In fact, other kids used to refer to me as ‘Wanda legs’ said in a deep tone like an elephant walking through the forest. Funny thing though, I didn’t realize they were making fun of my big legs. I thought they were paying me a compliment. I love denial. It’s my favorite coping mechanism. But, I know others aren’t that lucky. Words can really hurt us and stay with us forever.

Just like Tad in A Turtle’s Magical Adventure, he doesn’t like his shell because he blames it for making him too slow. He is also picked on at school for being so slow and coming to school late. He wants to be fast like Steve the snake who, unfortunately, gives him some bad advice to go see the wizard to have it removed.

If you or someone you know and love is struggling with something they don’t like about themselves, please share this book with them. It will entertain and encourage them to love everything about themselves.

Book 1

Sir Princess Petra book cover with sword-weilding princess and dragon by Diane Mae Robinson
Available on Amazon

 

Book #1 in the Ten-Time International Multi-Award Winning Series

“I have thought hard and for many passing moons. Jewels, frocks of lace, and princess games are boring. The thing I want the most . . . “Petra hesitated and bit on her lip. “I want to be a royal knight.”

Princess Petra’s unusual birthday request sends the court into a frenzy, but when she agrees to undertake a knight’s quest they can’t stop her. Armed with a cake knife and outfitted in the best royal pots and pans, Petra sets off to face a dragon and win her real armour before encountering a bog witch, and an army of the kingdom’s worst enemies. Will Petra’s kindness and acceptance prove more valuable than weapons and armour?

Join Sir Princess Petra and her dragon steed, Snarls, in their zany adventures in this humorous fantasy and exciting fairy tales for kids series. These multi-award winning dragon fantasy books for kids 7 – 11 years are sure to entertain.

My Review (5 stars)

Such a fun story! I actually read book three first but that took nothing away from enjoying this first book in the series. Sir Princess Petra is a kind-hearted soul who has big dreams for herself to be a royal knight against her parents wishes. She goes on her quest and makes friend of everyone she meets. Such a great story with a good lesson and plenty of humor thrown in!

Sir Princess Petra has already proven she is a kind and noble knight. This, however, does not please the king and queen—they want her to behave like a princess and forget this silly knight nonsense of hers!
But when the king writes a new rule in the royal rule book that requires her to attend Talent School and acquire a princess talent certificate or suffer the spell of the royal magician, Petra, reluctantly, agrees to go. But who could have guessed what Sir Princess Petra’s Talent would be?
Join Sir Princess Petra and her dragon steed, Snarls, in these zany adventures books for children, book series for girls age 9 – 12. These multi-award winning dragon books are sure to entertain. Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is book club recommended.

My Review (5 stars)

I very much enjoyed book two in this series. Sir Princess Petra doesn’t want to go to Princess School but she manages to find a work-around. She is strong and kind and a wonder role model for children. She keeps the King and Queen on their toes and she challenges their desire for her to be a proper Princess. The author knows how to entertain young readers with fun and interesting characters alongside a healthy dose of humor!

“Ms. Robinson has created a heroine unlike any other in children’s literature.” J.E. Rogers, Award-winning middle-grade fantasy author.

Sir Princess Petra has already attained her knighthood in the Kingdom of Pen Pieyu and her non-princess-like talent certificate from Talent School, neither of which pleases her father and mother, the king and queen.The king writes up more silly rules in the royal rule book to deter Sir Princess Petra from her knightly ways and useless talent, and turn her into a real princess once and for all. Will the king finally succeed with this newly written, ridiculous mission for Petra?
