As many of you already know, I truly believe books make the best gifts for kids. I think I may have mentioned it a time or two 🙂


So imagine my delight and surprise when I awoke Tuesday morning to a landslide of book orders for my children’s book A Year in the Secret Garden! This made me smile because I know what fun and learning is in store for the happy little readers who will soon be immersing themselves into the world of Frances Hodgson Burnette’s classic A Secret Garden with a fun and modern twist.

As parents, we want/need quality books with extension activities to help our young ones unplug and create memories. Pulling books from shelves, and stories from pages, is also an important act that will aid in them being life-long readers. Quality books with companion book extension activities are not only work to create special family time, it allows kids to solve the world’s problems without major consequences.
A Year in the Secret Garden is just such a book.

This delightful children’s book that is co-written by Marilyn Scott-Waters and I offers unique and original month-by-month activities that allow readers to delve deeper into the classic children’s tale, The Secret Garden! With over 120 pages, with 150 original color illustrations and 48 activities for your family and friends to enjoy, learn, discover and play with together.
This book will make a great gift and be the catalyst of many hours of family growth, learning and FUN! Grab your copy ASAP and “meet me in the garden!” More details HERE!

So I’ve decided to take my excitement and turn into An Extra Special Holiday Book Sale on this book, and only this book from my children’s book line-up.

A Year in the Secret Garden

Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
Here’s something else that is near-and-dear to my heart because my parents were from Sweden. Every December 13th, we continue a long family tradition of celebrating St. Lucia. In the darkest hours of the morning a young girl with a wreath of candles on her head brings hope, warmth and light to the darkest, coldest time of the year. I have taken all of our favorite recipes, activities and books that celebrate this event, along with the history of Santa Lucia as well, and created a very special color pdf for the holiday season.

The Celebrating a Santa Lucia Christmas pdf guide is my gift to you and simply click the image below to enjoy these fun family-friendly activities. Click this link or click the image below to grab your copy and create some new traditions in your own family! Thank you!
