Great Books for Kids by J. Aday Kennedy

Sorry everyone I didn't get this up over the weekend. My five year old had the stomach flu and so I'm sure you all know where I spent most of my time. She's feeling much better today and luckily the baby seems to have missed catching her older sisters sickness. 

Well I wanted to share you all J. Aday Kennedy's books. I have really enjoyed them and I think you will too even if you don't have little ones at home. One thing that has helped improve my writing is not only talking with other writers and taking workshops . . . but also reading books by those I've come to admire. You not only learn the basics of writing, but about the style each writer has.

Reluctant readers will devour the humorous and thought provoking tale. A Pegasus that resembles a mule, a witty monkey that defends him and a hateful bird teach children looks aren’t important. What makes someone appear strange or different could be what makes them able to save the day.
