A Book from my Bookshelf The Cassell’s Annual For Boys and Girls 1914

Comment by Gueh Yanting, Claudine on Friday

What can I tell you about this picture book?

That sometimes only children seem to be able to understand the need to be kind and compassionate to another being, no matter where it's from, no matter what it is.

Hello out there in the world of Children's Books!

First, Sally the Travelin' Saddle, my new picture book, is available for Pre Order. 

Sally has been traveling around taking selfies in front of businesses, schools and with real people before she arrives at her destination on September 11. She has three school readings to attend before then, also.

When Sally told the old mare she wanted to travel, she wasn't playing around! See her selfies here or here.

People love taking selfies with Sally! And she is more than happy to leave them a "Sally was Here" business card with all of her information so they can visit her page and see their pictures!

Second, as I am so involved with schools and doing free school presentations (we all know how much teachers spend on their classrooms and how much educational budgets have been cut), I wanted to let you all know about a new free for education program I recently started to get the "hook of books" in front of school children. By next year, I hope to have the program filled up and ready for student use. Five authors have already enrolled a book and I am adding their content now.

Between now and then, I am spreading the word to local teachers, friends and everyone Sally comes in contact with (I attend many schools and book festivals throughout the year), as well as planning a full blown marketing program for the start of the 2016 school year.

As children's book authors, we know how difficult it can be to reach our market, because we have to get through the grown-ups to the children, just like those cheesy holiday commercials do!  I remember watching those commercials every year and dreaming of getting that (Easy Bake Oven, here) for the holidays! If you have a book for age 5-17 and are interested in taking a look at the program, message me. I'll send you the link.

Even if your book is unpublished at this time, you can enroll it and start the school marketing for it!

My blog is in a state of re-branding right now, but you can contact me through my page here. Happy writing, all!

So many children's picture books are written from the mom's perspective, but one dad, Kevin DeFilippis, wrote one from his viewpoint to show the bonding from dad to baby. His story is the topic of my latest blog post. Read his insights on family and writing at
