I created this story sometime after my mother died. She died when i was 9 years old and she was gifted a fur coat for me and i hated to wear it...However when she died i would wish that the coat would take me to her. I never thought i would make it through without her. So when i was 13 i wrote my first short book "Me and my Fur Coat" and Now that i am a mom and have my own daughter and have experienced a mothers love, I have now evolved the title to "Lizzy and the Magic Coat". The character is named after my daughter Elizabeth."
The American Academy of Pediatrics acknowledge the importance of reading to children from birth, as it enhances vocabulary and other important communication skills. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” ― Dr. Seuss
"Lizzy and the Magic Coat: Sweet Sweet Dreams" is available at Barnes and Nobles, Amazon and will be released on Kindle.
