Would love one for a school in SD!
Love seeing rhyme books make it out of the trenches. Would love to have her review my rhyming manuscript.
I need this book for my grandson who will be born in June! If he is like his Mommy, he will have very busy feet!
I live in Ashtabula, Ohio and teach Kindergarten, so this book will be busy! Thank you!
Sounds like a fun read aloud!
