In Show Your Shine, a young boy named Joshua learns that we all have a unique purpose when, suddenly, the stars stop shining, the waves of the seas halt their movements, and vegetation begins to wilt.

This tale is about Rosie. . .a very big klutz,
Always covered with bumps, scrapes, and cuts.

She wished there were something she could do.
Then one night her dream came true!

With some exceptions, I bet you’ve never seen these animals in a book about the alphabet. Have you ever seen a coelacanth? If you’re reading this, you probably know the alphabet. You might, however, want to read about the animals. For each letter, I’ve written something interesting. Or clever. Or both. Or, maybe you just want to look at all the pretty pictures (and they are pretty). Most importantly, you’re probably reading this to those who can’t read it by themselves, and that is the main reason I wrote it. So you won’t get tired of saying:“D is for dog…”again.
