Time for a Plug or Two
If you like magic, and are looking for a good read for an 8-to-12-year-old reader, let me recommend my book, The Fourth Wish. It was vetted by three different classes in the target age group, and most recently I heard a friend's grandson is reading it to his own class at school! The Fourth Wish can be ordered at: https://222.createspace.com/3353849 or through Amazon at:
If you like poetry, let me recommend the lovely poems from Swimming the Mirror, written by Brad Buchanan, a young man who recently joined the picture book group I belong to. These are poems to his three-year-old daughter and are utterly charming. They've been highly praised by Sacramento Poet Laureate, Julia Connor, and by poet Susan Kelly-DeWitt, among others. Swimming the Mirror is available through Roan Press. Poets with a book of their own to submit would be well-advised to visit the submission guidelines at http://www.roanpress.com/ .
