Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved to read books.
She grew up and had lots of jobs. Her favorite job was being a mom and reading books to her kids.
Then, one day, she got to write a book!
Today, her kids are all grown up but she is still writing books. She likes to visit schools, libraries, bookstores, churches, soup kitchens, just about anywhere she can read books to kids.
