Louey is an adorable but lazy elephant who likes to sleep late. One day Louey wakes up to find that the whole herd has moved on without him. Louey is very upset but he is determined to find his herd. Does Louey find his way to his family and friends? Does he learn that it doesn’t pay to be lazy? Take Louey home with you and find out.
Louey was my first publication. I wrote this book because I love baby elephants and wanted to write a story around one. This story came quickly to me once I had a title. Louey continues to be my favorite children’s book out of all my 15 books. He is sweet and adorable and I love the illustrations my talented husband, John, has created to bring Louey to life. Thank you, John!
I hope your children will enjoy reading Louey and learn an important life lesson about listening to their mother.
Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book – even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, heighten their creativity, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!
My goal in writing for children is to encourage them to read daily to enhance their life through good health and increase their creativity. Please read to your children daily even after they can read by themselves. This is a wonderful time to bond, cuddle, and get closer to your children. They will love you for the time you took to spend with them. Please keep reading and I will keep writing! Happy Reading Everyone!
I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
