Review of The Veterans' Clubhouse

I recently had the opportunity to review The Veterans' Clubhouse by Kristen Zajac.  This book addresses the problems of homeless veterans from a child's point of view.

Becoming homeless can happen to anyone.  But when it happens to Charlie, a Vietnam Veteran that Patrick and Hailey meet, they decide to take matters into their own hands and do something about it.  With the help of their church and community, they build the Veterans’ Clubhouse to help homeless vets get back on their feet.

What a terrific message author Kristen Zajac delivers to children in showing them how they could get involved to help the homeless.  I bet after reading the book, kids will come up with their own creative ideas on how to help as well.

Jennifer Houdeshell’s illustrations leap off the page and really add another dimension to this wonderful book.

This book would make a splendid addition to any home or library.  It shows a way to give back to those who served this country and demonstrates how compassion plus action achieves great things.  Nicely done!

Papa's Suns Coming Soon!

I'm thrilled to announce that my latest picture book, Papa's Suns is scheduled to be released shortly.  Below is the official blurb for this book which should be coming out at the end of the month.

Jacob and his grandfather like to spend time drawing pictures together. But after
Papa has a stroke, Jacob is afraid that his Papa will be different. Although Papa’s
body is healing, Jacob discovers that the love between him and his grandfather will
never change.

This book is close to my heart because it based on the relationship between my father-in-law and my daughter. Here is a sneak peek at the cover.  The illustrations are beautifully done by Samantha Bell.
