A wish for the season to one and all

We’re coming to the happiest time of the year and… 

I want to wish all of my readers, far and near, a very happy holiday. However you celebrate, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy Kwanzaa may this year be the best.

               

No matter how you celebrate this time of the year, I hope your holiday is filled with joy and happiness.

And as we ring out the old and in the new year…

I wish a better and prosperous 2019 for us all.

Are you ready to celebrate the holidays?

Got all your shopping done?

Are you a planner or one of those last-minute grab and go type of shoppers?

If you’re like me and fall somewhere in the middle better hit the stores soon. Thank goodness for Amazon!

My shopping is almost complete. Only a couple more to find and a couple more I’m waiting on to be delivered.

But if you’re still looking for a great gift, remember books give all year-long! 

 

I hope however you celebrate this time of year, your holiday is filled with joy and wonder.

So, I’m not going to flood your inbox with posts you probably have little time to read. You’ll still hear from me, from time to time. Because I’m going to give myself a few days off around Christmas. But don’t you worry, I’ll be back with lots of energy and more stuff after the hustle and bustle of the holidays wind down.

I’d love to know…

More shopping to do? Or all finished?

Do you have any special plans for the holidays?

It’s that wonderful time of the year!

Time for joy and cheer. 

Thank Y’all for a wonderful year. With the encouragement, feedback, reviews and great writing tips from so many incredible writers and bloggers I managed to produce two children’s picture books.

But now it’s time to relax and enjoy family and friends.

So eat, drink and be merry! Read, rest and relax. That’s what I plan to do.

And as you’re catching up on your reading, I hope you’ll enjoy the “Best of Jean’s Writing.”

To each and everyone, have a fabulous holiday and a very Merry Christmas! – Jean

How to encourage your kids to dream big

And my oh my, it’s that time of year when kids wish for the moon.

Christmas sale ads are popping up everywhere! But games, new gadgets and brightly wrapped packages are not all kids dream about.  christmas-sack-964342_640

Article after article tell us they have great aspirations for their life. They dream and plan to do big things when they grow up. As parents, teachers, grandparents, and writers we need to encourage their dreams.

My books are written to inspire any little boy or girl to reach for the stars.

At long last, A Reluctant Little Prince is available in print!

Give a gift that keeps giving all year-long.

I hope you’ll remember it’s never too early to instill the love of reading to a child.
