Welcome back, my fellow creatives! I’ve always been thrilled to see how much my three little Bs love to read, but it makes my heart melt to hear my daughter Blondie say she wants to do a podcast with me to share her favorite books. When I said we could make a little “12 Days of Christmas” style series in December, Blondie whipped through her books and picked twelve for us to study. She even designed our banner with her favorite fantasy creature. x
So here we are! I’m blessed to have such amazing kindred spirits in my life, and I am so very blessed to have a daughter who loves storytelling as much as I do.
On the eighth day of Blondie’s Books, my daughter gave to me:
What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!
Why did you pick this book, Blondie?
I picked this book at first because there was a dog (he looked like an Australian Shepard, which is one of my favorite dog breeds) on the cover. It turned out to be one of the funniest things I have read! Bowser is a delightful character and simply the way he thinks is funny. I encourage any dog lover to read this book! I also suggest you read the other two books in this series. but don’t spoil them for me because I haven’t read them yet!
Stay tuned for more storytellin’ and carol-singin’!
Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!
