Dear Librarian:

With so many books out there on the shelves to choose from I believe A MOMENT IN TIME stands out for its grounding message encouraging children and parents to slow down and to enjoy the simplest moments together. My book promotes family values and mindful thinking. It is written in rhythm and rhyme that is 'irresistible to read aloud' – says the owner of Where The Sidewalk Ends Bookstore. The cadence has the kids asking to read it over and over. It has a natural pulse to it which 'gets the kids moving to the beat' – says Lauwers from the Cape Cod Times. It is about a family enjoying the simplest of activities together and discovering some of the best moments are the unplanned ones. I know it would be a nice addition to the children's section of any library as well as a perfect pick for story time. The kids also love trying to find the red bird in the illustrations.
