Yesterday Jimmy and I (and my wife who was a great help) made our first school visit! Orangewood Christian School was kind enough to invite us to speak to their K through 5th graders and we had an absolute blast! The kids there have all been working on their own books throughout the school year so not only did I get to share Jimmy with them but I got to hear some of their stories as well. They are a talented bunch of kids and it’s no wonder given the great faculty and staff the school has teaching them. Thank you Orangewood for the great experience!
On Monday Jimmy received his first official review! Tonja Drecker was kind enough to post her review on her blog Bookworm for Kids . Be sure to go check it out!
I have just added an activities page to the website. You can find it by clicking on the Menu button in the top right hand corner. Feel free to go there and print off copies for your children to enjoy!
Today, I received confirmation that I have been invited to share Jimmy with children at a school here in the Orlando area in April. So exciting! Also makes me a bit nervous since it will be my first time doing a school assembly but glad to get the opportunity. Time to begin some research on the best ways to go about putting a plan for the day together!

Jessica Pirani with the Sanford Herald was kind enough to write an article about the book recently. You can see it here:
