Keep Keystroking On!

Yesterdays "word of mouth" is today's keystrokes in the form of blogs, e-zines, tweets. Thanks largly to my publicist, Rebecca Grose of SoCal Public Relations, my picture books are getting grand mentions. I'm chuffed (as my South African friend, Shona, says) and want to share and send huge thanks! To Diana Chen, School Library Journal Blogger "Practically Paradise", for this May 8 posting featuring Your Mommy. Despite our "lovies" vs. "kisses and hugs" debate, prompted by the line "“I’d bandage her scrapes and give her extra lovies," I'm a huge fan.

And YEEHAW for chatting up Dance, Y'all, Dance!

And, to  radio talk-show host Shannon Devereaux Sanford, for making an interview with her so casual and fun, and for this:

...Also, it is Mother’s Day and do I have the book for you to read to your kids or grandkids. Kelly Bennett has written a new book, her 17th children’s book, called Your Mommy Was Just Like You (G.P.  Putnam’s Sons).

It is a wonderful book to read to kids and share your life when you were young with them. Beautifully illustrated the kids will enjoy the pictures as you read the words and go on this fun journey together. I love Kelly’s books - they are always perfect! You will agree with me when you go to www.kellybennett.com to get the book and don’t forget to listen to her talk about it on Saturday at 12:45. You will be glad you did so you can Make Good Choices for Mother’s Day and every day ~
