We have enjoyed entertaining reading stories and playing music with children this summer at many libraries around the Little Rock area.

Reading for children is one of the most rewarding things in the world. They love to be read to. They love new books. I enjoy their questions and comments about books I am in the process of writting and have added many times because of their imput. I hope the books I write and will write and read for children will be enjoyed for a long time to come. I hope my books teach children in a fun way all about nature, sceince, history, fantasy, adventure and faith. I hope I inspire parents to continue an age old tradition of reading bedtime stories to they children every night, and that my stories are included and that mine are among the ones that children ask for again and again. I am working on The Animals Used By God book series. I am the illustrator and co-author and also planning to have audiobooks with music for preschoolers to enjoy. I will have many other surprise details about these faith-based stories soon. I am truly excited about them and I know young readers will be inspired by their message. From my house to yours, may God shine upon you today -Carol Dabney
