Yesterday I got the opportunity to read to a wonderful group of kids at the Boys and Girls Club in Bryant. I started out asking a the question, “Where do you think goldfish comes from?” I had a lot of wonderful answers including, the ocean, the river, the pond. My favorite answer had me laughing, “The pet store!” My book goes to show that every child has a different thought as to where goldfish comes from.
They were a very tentative group, with many brilliant questions. They each truly enjoyed the book and the colorful pictures that it entailed. After I was finished reading they asked a few questions about the book and being an author, then they thanked me as they had to go on to another project.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading to them. It’s the reason why I wanted to write and publish a children’s book, to do something for children. I love kids and I especially love mine. What a wonderful day it was and I look forward to the next opportunity I get to do it again.
