GAP FAMILY BLOG WELCOMES: Jennifer Prus, Author of A Toddler’s ABC of Blessings

Congratulations on the release of A Toddler’s ABC of Blessings.  Please tell us more about it.
About the book:  A Toddler’s ABC of Blessings is truly a snuggle book, allowing readers to follow along as a toddler shares his adorable blessings using the alphabet; from angels who watch over him, mud puddles to jump into before mass, to zebras that traveled on Noah’s ark. Children will love the playful rhymes and colorful illustrations.
What was the inspiration for this book?

Jennifer: When my oldest was a young child, I was looking around various book stores for a Christian themed alphabet book to share.  When I was unable to find one, I decided to write one.
What is your favorite moment from the book?

Jennifer: I truly have enjoyed every part of the book, from writing it to brainstorming the illustrations with artist Alyssa McIlhany.  Ms. McIlhany has done a beautiful job bringing the book to life with her gorgious water color paintings.
Is this your first published book?
Jennifer: No, I have also written the children’s picture book, Lonely Little Leaf.
We’d love to hear more about you.
Jennifer: I’m currently a stay-at-home mother of two wonderful children.  As one who adores snuggle time while reading with my own children, it thrills me to be an author and illustrator, knowing my work will be shared during such tender moments for others.
Do you have any book signing events or book tours scheduled for A Toddler’s ABC of Blessings?
I will be having a book signing at Falling Rock Café and Bookstore, located in beautiful Munising, Michigan on Saturday, July 14th.  Join us of a story reading and craft!

Congratulations on the release of Romeo’s Rescue. Please tell us more about it.

About the book:
This is a story about a cat, who after a lot of trials and tribulations, finds a forever home.
What was the inspiration for this book?

Jennifer: We have a feral cat problem in the rural areas that we live. A neighbor, along with myself, made it our mission to stop the population of cats and to take care of those cats that decided to make our property their home. We’ve spaded and neutered and vaccinated many cats, found homes for kittens, and provide food and shelter.
What is your favorite moment from the book?

Jennifer: Of course when Romeo finds the two children and they take him in.
Is this your first published book?

Jennifer: No
We’d love to hear more about you.

Jennifer: I’ve been writing and publishing for nearly twenty years. Romeo’s Rescue is my 28th book published for children, and my third with Guardian Angel. I had my own online magazine called Wee Ones for about eight years, taught at the Institute of Children’s Literature (eight years), and wrote for many children’s magazines including Highlights, Boys’ Life, and Hopscotch. Currently I teach part time at a Christian high school and am a full time graduate student at Vermont College of Fine Arts. My degree will be in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
Wee Ones was a great magazine. I know a lot of people who miss it still.

Congratulations on the release of CHIP’S SHARING DAY. Please tell us more about it. What was the inspiration for this book?
Cousin Dorcas is visiting today and Chip’s mother tells him he must share his toys because it’s kind and nice and fair to share. Shy Dorcas picks up one toy after the other, only to have that rascal Chip remind her that they have to share and take turns playing with his toys. Finally, Dorcas decides to be kind and nice and fair by sharing something with Chip that he might not actually want! Chip finds himself reluctantly admiring his cousin for beating him at his own game.

Linda: The inspiration for this book were real teddy bears that I gave voices and personalities to. Chip was a cute stuffed bear, but I could tell he was quite naughty. J

What is your favorite moment from the book?
Linda: When shy Cousin Dorcas earns Chip’s respect with her trick.

Is this your first published book?
Linda: My first book was another for children. The Missing Stories: Caleb’s Missing Whisper & Other Stories was published by Hard Shell Word Factory, but it’s no longer available. 
We’d love to hear more about you.
Linda: I get inspired by many things: The things my children do and shouldn’t, and don’t do and should! Animals, stuffed animals and dolls inspire me. They have so much personality sometimes, they write their own stories.
How can our readers learn more about you and any upcoming events?
Linda: Visit my website: http://www.angelfire.com/stars4/kswiesner/linda.html

For Immediate Release

Children’s Ezine Guardian Angel Kids: Growing Up – June 2012 Issue

The Guardian Angel Kids creative crew is pleased to announce the new Ezine format. The inviting visual will take the reader on a turn page style adventure with the click of the mouse accompanied with the sound of turning a page in your hand. Without further ado, we present the Guardian Angel Kids Growing Up June 2012 issue…

The carefree days of childhood invokes memories of lazy days of summer vacation filled with days of swimming at the town pool. It was the central social point of the neighborhood and the excitement of the day would then flow onto our cul-de-sac (after the children of the neighborhood ate their respective suppers) where there was always a stick ball game going on until the single street light flickered on. Quickly we would change gears and switch to playing flashlight tag. My mother, always an avid reader, made sure her children read each and every day and to this day we all have instilled the same love of reading with our own children. Without lapsing in our reading skills throughout the summer we were always well prepared with our studies. The days appeared endless and before you knew it, it was time for back to school shopping.

The love of reading has led me to the path of writing for children and Editor-in-Chief of Guardian Angel Publishing, for which I’m joyful for and proud to present the Guardian Angel Kids June 2012 issue of Growing Up www.guardian-angel-kids.com.

We hope you enjoy our issue of Growing Up as much the Guardian Angel Kid staff did reminiscing about our childhoods and selecting the wonderful poetry, stories, articles, and activities.
