This Pup Steps Up!

This Pup Steps Up! A dog book for kids (Rockridge Press, 2021) is a fun rhyming romp through the world of dogs, full of cute and colorful photos to help your little one learn more about their four-legged friends. Your toddler or pre-K child will love discovering all the different things dogs can do―from working as service animals, herding sheep, and leading sleds to just being the perfect cuddle buddies. Of all the dog books for kids, this one is a paws-itively delightful introduction to one of their favorite animals!

The Proper Way to Meet a Hedgehog and Other How to Poems

Be they practical (how to mix a pancake or how to bird-watch) or fanciful (how to scare monsters or how to be a snowflake), the poems in this book boast a flair and joy that you won’t find in any instruction manual.

Soft, evocative illustrations will encourage readers to look at the world with an eye to its countless possibilities.

I’m excited to be featured in a table of contents with other wonderful and well-known poets such as Margarita Engle, Nikki Grimes, Pat Mora, Kwame Alexander, Douglas Florian, Charles Ghigna and many others.
