Book Review: Author Jo Linsdell and Fairy May

What do you get when you combine an award winning author, a great theme, and a fun character? You get another award winning picture book for young children. Author Jo Linsdell has done it again by creating a lovable character, a dream, just the right amount of conflict, and a slam bam ending and she does it with fun verse and delightful illustrations.

Fairy May

ISBN: 9781481951425

Pages: 32

Author and Illustrator: Jo Linsdell

Visit for more great insight into this award-winning author and the books she creates for children. Her writing career goes far beyond writing for children and her website offers some great tips for writers and parents or teachers.

It is clear by the stories Ms. Linsdell writes that she not only loves children but she knows what they love and she can write to entertain and enlighten them. Clearly a delightful read.

New Ideas, New Prayers, New Book Cover, New Focus.......

Many of you know that I am a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse as well as a writer. The focus here has been on children with a serious illness but in 2012 I will be expanding the focus to include pregnancy/fetal growth and development information as well as more up to date information on childhood illness.

I will be having give aways for books like What to Expect When You're Expecting and other children's books on death, illness, first aid, wellness, and literacy. I am pumping up my writing career and expanding my goals so that I can use my expertise as both a nurse and a writer to make a difference.

Keep checking back for the give aways and product reviews. Soon there will be a free e-book for signing up for my email list. I am working on that as another way I can help parents who are dealing with kids who may be sick. Whether the illness is acute or chronic, parents ultimately have questions or ideas. I hope to be able to encourage and support parents and children in many aspects of sickness and in health.

It is going to be a different kind of New Year in 2012. New focus, New prayers, New book, and hopefully making many new friends as readers.
