Books to Inspire the Kid in You

Off the record: I love children's books. I have written a few (as yet unpublished), and read thousands.

When I read the "Henry Hikes," books with my daughter, I fell in love, and contacted the author/illustrator, D.B. Johnson.

Check it out and let this be your entry into a magical new year!
