My dear friend Sherri,
who was by my side the day my son was born,
(18 years ago yesterday to be exact),
has written a children's book!
So exciting I had to blog about it.
Sherri and her husband have two boys
who have always been
in love with with trucks and construction machinery.
My friend noticed that there weren't many books out there
written for children on this subject.
So she wrote a story.
Now it's a published book!
(So proud of her.)
With adorable illustrations
by well-known artist Tom Lichtenheld,
this sweet bedtime story
will endear your little ones' hearts.
Sherri's book is featured right now on
the cover of Publisher's Weekly.
Here is a little quote
from Sherri on the book:
As our youngest son grew more-and-more enamored
with trucks, our nightly "thank-you prayers" grew into endlessly long lists, naming every construction vehicle he'd ever seen. And, of course, in naming and thinking about all of those big, powerful trucks, our little boy was even LESS likely to settle down than before! So, together, we began to imagine how hard those mighty trucks had worked all day and how, right at that very moment, they were probably slowing down, turning off their engines and going to sleep, too.
It occurred to me that this might make a good (and needed!) idea for a children's book for
little truck enthusiasts
(and their exhausted parents) everywhere.
And thus, this journey began…
Apparently, she has successfully filled
that void I mentioned because her book,
"Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site"
is selling like crazy.
So, if you know of a little boy or girl
that adores trucks,
I highly recommend this book!
(Now available on Amazon.)
Just goes to show....
if you put your mind to it,
you can make things happen.
