Reading Levels!

Good morning, my lovies!

I had some weird dreams last night, and I’m excited to say that I now have a great idea for book three of The Demon Bunny Chronicles!

But that’s not the point of this blog post.

I am writing these books for my daughter, Alex. When she entered third grade, she was only reading at a first grade level. Every parent wants to do whatever it takes to help their children succeed.

What did I do?

I decided to write a book for my sweet daughter. Occasionally, I would have a finished chapter waiting for her to read when she came home from school. It was totally awesome to watch her imagination blossom and her reading skills improve. Greatly, actually.

I am extremely excited to announce to you that Alex was tested before the summer break, and guess what! Her reading level shot up from the first grade reading level to the … DRUM ROLL … fifth grade reading level!

Now, I’m sure my book isn’t the whole reason for her extensive improvement, but I am confident that it helped her broaden her mind and open up those dams that held her back. She is writing and creating artwork every day. I am so thankful that I am able to help her reach her goals!

How do I plan to improve upon that idea?

I have decided to incorporate her fourth grade study words into the third book of this series.

I’m pleased with the idea, and I hope your children appreciate my books as much as Alex!

Sincerest regards,

Christmas Pictures Dead Ahead!

Well good evening my lovelies, and MERRY CHRISTMAS! I’m so busy working on the second book of this series that I completely forget to post on this darling blog of mine. So! What I am going to do is just schedule ahead some cute pictures that my family and loved ones took this evening … just to keep the heart of the blog pumping.

I promise to update everyone soon on the progress of BOOK TWO when I have time because what can I say? It’s Christmas time.

Below is a picture of my beautiful daughter, Alex. Tonight we celebrated Christmas with hundreds of our family and friends! Just a reminder, Leigh, the younger demon bunny sibling, is based off of the quirky blonde below. Pardon the blurriness.


Merry Christmas!
