“The wool grew so thick it soon covered his eyes. It looked like he was wearing some strange disguise!”
Wilbur The Woolly is an entertaining parable about trusting the good shepherd. As Wilbur avoids getting shorn and tries to do things his own way, he ends up finding himself in some sticky situations. Follow Wilbur the sheep on his journey as he discovers that getting his own way isn't always best and the shepherd does love him after all.
While seemingly a Christian parable, there is nothing in this book to keep the story from being a non-religious book about love and natural cycles and life’s seasons, like growing up! It is a straightforward story with a bit of whimsy and a little bit of humor (starting with the cover art!), and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Sooty is an adventurous chicken who longs to experience life beyond the backyard and no fence will stop her. Trampolines, sunhats and shopping adventures aren’t out of bounds for this cheeky chicken, but what if the fence is there for a reason?
Sooty & Snow is an entertaining cautionary tale based on the true story of two loveable hens. This fun and colorful story follows the entertaining antics of Sooty the chicken and is a good reminder of why we have rules and boundaries.
Will Sooty realize the fence is there to keep her safe and that home really is best?

Beautiful illustrations - Great idea!

Good moral stories for kids can be hard to find. I know, because when my children were younger, I browsed the internet and libraries for good stories to read to them. Although there are many beautiful books out there, I was surprised to find that very few children's stories contained the positive messages and morals that I was after. Sure, there is a place for simply fun and entertaining books, but I was after something more. Something that my children and I wanted to read again and again. Something meaningful. The only answer seemed to be writing my own, so here we are!
