I write children’s books about the special dogs and cats I’ve had in my life. These amusing stories will entertain young readers as they imagine the world through the eyes of animals.
A Dog’s Bucket List stars Nike, an abandoned dog who, after finding his forever home, makes an unusual list of things he wants to do. Be a flying squirrel? A detective? A skydiver? No problem! With this entertaining chapter book, Nike tells the quirky tales of how he tosses each completed goal into his big red bucket.
I want kids who read A Dog’s Bucket List to laugh! And hopefully they will be inspired to make their own bucket lists, challenging themselves to think of things they want to do in their lives. Maybe the items on their lists won’t be terribly exciting (some of Nike’s aren’t), but the process will teach kids that they can reach out and try new things.
On my blog, A Bucket Full of Tales, I write about adopting pets, grieving for a pet, what it’s like to volunteer at an animal shelter, and the special animals I’ve had in my life. I also delve into the writing process, as well as the items on my own bucket list.
