My New Books: The Young Storyteller's Prompt and Draw Series

Some children love to tell stories. Others have a difficult time using their imagination. Eleanor Roosevelt is quoted as saying, "The greatest gift you can give a child is an imagination." Einstein linked intelligence levels to imagination.

Today, I'm thrilled to announce the release of my new series of books for children, The Young Storyteller's Prompt and Draw Series.

Each of the twelve books begin with "There Once Was a ______." The books are 8.5" by 8.5", perfect for spreading on a table for writing and drawing. Throughout the book, I provide short prompts to guide the child through all the elements of story so that they have a beginning, middle, and end, with some plot twists. Half of the right page has the prompt and lines to write the story, the other half of the page, and the left page, are left blank so the child can illustrate their story as they create it. I also left the covers with minimal design, with a matte finish, so your budding storytellers can design their own cover to match their stories. These books will become treasured keepsakes of their childhood, and even "measuring sticks" of their growth!

I kept the topics simple so the child's imagination could add all the details. As I created them, I thought of my own children as they were growing up and how we'd go off on rabbit trails as they zeroed in on a topic and began asking questions.

If the child gets stuck in building their story, just ask them different questions about their topic and they'll take off again.

About the Books:
