Hello and happy Sunday to you!!! I wanted to tell you about a special book I just received in the mail the other day!!! The book is called "Card Auntie's Wonderful Workshop". It's written and illustrated by Sharon Hickey. She is new to Operation Write Home , and that's how I met her!! This book is wonderful!!! If you are a card maker and especially if you have children....this books for you!!! My children have loved reading it over the last few days....when I told them that it was autographed for them BY the author/illustrator....they thought that was the neatest thing!!!! They told ALL their friends that I've actually 'TALKED" ...(emailed)....the lady who wrote this book!!! LOL...it was priceless!!! ;)
Anyways,I just wanted to let you know ,that we have enjoyed it as a family and the kids really loved finding all the hidden pictures of the snail....what a clever idea...it really gets their competitive spirits up....let me tell you....of 'who' can find the snail the fastest.....this would be great to read to young children!!!
My kids are getting a little big and I really don't read to them much anymore,they read to me now!!! But I sat down and read it to them in the living room and even my almost 13 year old joined us....I didn't ask him to....but was happy he did!!! If you ever do a ' kids camp' or 'mommy and me' class....I would suggest taking this book for the kids....it makes them 'understand' the importance of 'snail mail' and creating cards for others!!! It even talks about how Card Auntie sends cards to people who serve our country!!! Awesome if you already make cards for OWH!!! It's a very sweet book for young and old alike!! ;)
