From author Sharyl Calhoun   
Literacy was always important in my home. As a child. I was surrounded by books. As they were read aloud to me, I dove into the delightful illustrations and became a part of the tale. As a result, like many of you, I learned to read before going to school.

Now as a reading teacher, I help struggling readers find the treasure they nearly missed. 

Whether you're an educator or reading aloud to a grandchild, I trust that your children will find an enjoyable tale, within the pages of our books. They will delight in the illustrations by talented artists, Jennifer Ellingwood and Jean Marvel!​
