Miss Maya and the Bridge to Everywhere

I'll never forget when my eight year old grandson came over to visit and went to my library to find a book to read. He searched and searched through the hundreds of children's books that I own and complained he couldn't find one to read.  I was mystified. Then, he explained that he wanted a chapter book. Oh, I immediately recognized he wanted to read a book with chapters so we went to the bookstore and bought about five to add to my collection.  Now, today's BOOK OF THE DAY, "Miss Maya and the Bidge to Everywhere," by Norman Earl Baron will be among my children's chapter books. Take a look.

I have been reading this book to my grandson and enjoyed the reactions of him. I also enjoy the reference to things I have been able to relate to from when I was a child. The references of characters from King Arthur added to my enjoyment.

Author’s Autobiography – NORMAN BARON

Norman Baron is an avid, voracious and broad-based reader. Now, at last, he has the time to write full-time. He has written a book for and about his granddaughter, Maya, who is a delight to be around. She inspired him to write this book because of her wit, smartness and rascally personality.

In the past, Norman has written articles for the local newspaper in Imperial Valley, California.

Norman loves to fly. He has been a pilot of single and multi-engine planes for years, and at one time owned some planes and a hot air balloon. Norman was a vascular and general surgeon in a rural underserved area in the desert of Southern California, near the Mexican border, for over 40 years.

After retirement, he moved to Arizona with his wife to spend more time with their granddaughter, Maya.
