Encourage Reading to Your Children

May 21, 2019

You know when it is getting close to school coming to a close as children have amped-up their energy. I know that my grandchildren can’t wait to spend their summer camping and swimming. Just yesterday, my four-year-old granddaughter told me she had swim practice. My, how they grow up. As summer approaches, please encourage your children to read. Buy them books or take them to a library. I just edited a perfect book for your children called Becoming Miss Izzy that will launch on June 17, 2019. This book would be the perfect book companion this summer for your child. Watch Book trailer.

Speaking of reading, I came across a book called  Halfway to a Southern Heart by Anthony Mays. The reviews on it have been outstanding, and therefore, I am recommending it to my readers. Watch the book trailer below.


Rebecca grew up in a well-to-do family in Memphis. For years, her father wanted her to marry the son of a family friend, but Rebecca did not love him. No sooner had she turned eighteen, she became pregnant by Vernon; a man she barely knew. Before she could share the good news with him, he suddenly left Memphis, never to return. Devastated, she had no choice but to give up the baby. Her parents sent her away to hide her growing shame and arranged for an adoption. However, Rebecca couldn’t go through with the adoption and made her own plans. With her secret secured, she returned home and dutifully married. In time, she gave birth to another child. Life was good until fate stepped in threatening to expose her secret. A series of events ensued that not only threatened to destroy her family, but also the lives of a family living in the fertile cotton belt of Arkansas.
