Children are delightful. Children are funny. Children – and boys in particular – seem to never sit still!

The goal of this book was to take some fun rhyming text, match it up with some lively illustrations and share with the reader (and the read-to) a day in the life of one little boy and his rabbit sidekick. If you smile or giggle or think for one second, “I can relate to that!” then our goal has been achieved.

Did you know that during the month of August, approximately 2,031 marshmallows are flambéed every sixty seconds? Compare that to a mere 17 toasting disasters total during the entire month of February. Rowdy summer campers are responsible for these carcinogenic torches, too impatient to wait for slow toasting needed for the perfect gooey s’mores.

Dear TeacherAnother lucky winner: Congratulations to Chanelle. She was selected by the random sequence generator at random.org to win a copy of Dear Teacher, by Amy Husband—a brightly illustrated collection of letters from Michael, a very imaginative boy, to his teacher, telling her all the reasons he simply cannot make it to the first day of school.
