Sarah’s Special Angel….

Today I have the privilege of posting my friend’s daughter’s first publication. She is only eleven! She not only wrote it but ilustrated it herself as well.

This what her mother says about her. Congratulations to Jennifer 🙂

 

Jennifer has been a creative little girl ever since she was born. She drew pictures, told stories and, as a preschooler, she would create “books” of her stories told in pictures. While I was writing the poetry book, Dogs Forever: Poems for the Dog Person, I noticed she was writing poetry, as well, so I asked her if she’d like to collaborate with me. At 10 years old, she became an author when this book was published. She wrote the story Sarah’s Special Angel for her grandmother’s memorial service and I thought it was such a special story, I encouraged her to get it published. We are very thankful to Kitty Bullard of GMTA Publishing for making my little girl’s dreams of being an author and illustrator come true.

And… her book…

 

Sarah’s Special Angel

 

An orphan girl just wants to be with her mother again. Her only friend is a little pet mouse who likes to ride around on her shoulder. What will happen when she meets a special angel?

 

Excerpt:

 

There once was a 9-year-old girl named Sarah. She was an orphan who lived in an orphanage because her parents died from a sickness.

One day, Sarah was walking through the woods. She looked around at all the trees, the brown crunchy leaves on the ground and the rays of sunshine coming through the branches.

All of these beautiful sights should have made Sarah feel happy. But Sarah was not happy. She missed her parents.

She had no other family and felt very lonely. Her only friend was a mouse she named Squeaker.

After a lot of walking, Sarah came upon a small riverbank. She sat down to take a drink from the water.

All of a sudden, a big oak tree swung down towards her!

But the tree didn’t crash down on Sarah. It stopped, right in midair!

Squeaker got frightened and scurried away.

Sarah looked at the tree. How strange for a tree to be bent over towards a person like this!

    Thank you so much for featuring my daughter on your blog, Anne! 🙂 I am very proud of her and she continues to amaze me with her creative drive and enthusiasm. She’s brimming with ideas and lots of things she wants to do. I totally support everything she wants to accomplish in life!
