The Laplandian Series

Happy to write that the 5th ‘Tee and Heddie’ storybook, set in Lapland, is now available: Tee’s Easter.  The series illustrates the importance of friendship, kindness, caring, adventure, expectation, science, social studies, animal intelligence which culminate to foster the idea that all life on earth is connected; this is represented by dear Jaska, the talking rock.  Tee’s Gift stands apart, in the series, as Tee is on her own in that story, ready as ever to help St. Nick when he has an upset at the North Pole once snowy Christmas.  The other 4 storybooks bring the Arctic friends together and introduce new characters in each book which include Bud and Rosebay Badger, Skatt the mouse, Mikko the eagle, Torto the owl, Mig and Janii Artic Hares, and in the lastest story, Tee’s Easter, the reader meets Piotrusz, a lost stork from Poland.  Tee and Heddie are those little friends that leave one with the smile hoped for when reading a children’s storybook.

good one Easter

Tee’s Easter:



A Valentine Story for Children

Twinkle Truth Publication books are designed for growing readers with themes that are intricate in children’s lives; the characters are kind, sweet and nutty.  They offer a healthy level of challenge regarding vocabulary, characters to keep in your heart, and themes that have happy endings, but the trail to get there is also wrought with decisions; it’s all about growing in a healthy way. Children will find peace in the reading, expansion of vocabulary, a touch of science, a touch of Social Studies, and many smiles for the fun-loving adventures of the characters.

One endearing group of characters live in the Laplandian Forest, and Tee, a little reindeer, is the main character of a grand group, that includes her best friend, Heddie Hedgehog. Tee’s mother often has something to say, and here is her latest:

“Use the threads to connect the dots and let yourself think outside the box.”  ~ Mother Deer

Tee’s Treasure-True Forest



The lights go out in the Laplandian Forest causing all sorts of unusual occurences.  Skatt, the mouse, seems to understand nature’s wonders, but Tee and Heddie count on Jaska, the smart talking rock, to guide them along.  Together they find the goodness in their ‘what-the-heck-happens-next’ kind of a day!

Tee’s Treasure-True Forest is a Valentine story for elementary children; happy, funny, and fun.  Andrzej Wroblewski’s illustrations bring this sweet story to life!

Food – We All Love It, But!

IMG_4153.jpg    and    veggie equal a better deal.

As I walked past my sweet girl, one of the smartest and best children ever, I stopped to have a second look at her snack.  I felt very sad when I saw it.  She is loved dearly by everyone: family, friends and teachers, a true blessing.  But, is it ok for children to have snacks every day that offer a variety of sugar?

A new building is nearly completed not far from where we live, on a main, well traveled street, and it is right next to McDonald’s, and a Hot Dog place, and Bo Jangles, and Krispy Kream donuts and two other fast food places.  We were wondering and wondering what would it be, and it was finally revealed to be a new Wendy’s.

I have nothing against fast food, and nothing against sugar.  But, studies have shown time and time again that children love ‘good’ food, too.  The only point that needs to be made is that, fun food is fine, perhaps best when it is the exception, rather than the rule.

Our children are too precious not to feed them well.
