NEW CHILDREN'S BOOK IS NOW HERE!

LUCY THE TALENTED TOY TERRIER

Cover by John Spina

AMAZON

KINDLE

BARNES & NOBLE

This book is based on my dog, Lucy, who I had for 16 years. She was quite a character and did all the things that are in this book. She loved my spaghetti with homemade sauce, watched TV shows featuring animals, hated baths, "sang" when music was played, and had two cherished possessions, a knotted rag and a ball. I hope you will enjoy reading about Lucy. She is no longer with us and can never be replaced.

CLARENCE HENRY THE HERMIT CRAB

Cover by John Spina

AMAZON

KINDLE

BARNES & NOBLE

Clarence Henry is different from other hermit crabs. He came to his new home minus one claw and a leg. He needs to protect himself until he can grow new appendages. Will Clarence Henry be able to meet the challenges in his new water world?

Clarence Henry was a real aquatic hermit crab who lived in a saltwater fish tank in our home. We watched him interact with the other creatures in the tank.

He was resilient, intelligent, and a joy to have as a pet. We took some photos of him as he grew his claw and leg and changed shells.

We shared these photos and facts about hermit crabs in the back of the book. I hope you will enjoy them. This book would make a wonderful resource for classrooms.
