This blog is designed to showcase people and experiences that corner the market on character and make the world a better place. I hope that my stories will positively influence and inspire you to seek out similar elevating experiences that you can share with others. I'll also post ideas, activities, book reviews, quotes or personal anecdotes that might just add a little J.O.Y. to your journey. Welcome!
Today I'm celebrating St. Patrick's Day (and what would have seen my Grandma Natzke turning 102) by sharing good news about the latest FlashLight Press release, Silly Frilly Grandma Tillie. This colorful gem is sure to knit its way into the hearts and minds of its readers as young and old alike connect with the grandiosity of this gentle Grandmother. Cheerfully complemented by Anne Jewet's playfully uplifting illustrations, Laurie A. Jacobs' text weaves a web of intrigue when this super-hero Grandma comes to babysit. Check out this book to see exactly what unravels with Grandma Tillie, whose bag of tricks and outrageous antics keep her granddaughters guessing. It will undoubtedly keep you in stitches, too!
I gave my copy to one of our knit-club mentors who recently became a Grandma herself and has two adorable granddaughters; I can totally see her playing the role of Gorilly Tillie or Tillie Vanilly!
Want an activity guide to enrich the story? Our friends at Flash Light Press make them available for all of their titles. Prepare to have a ball with this one!
