The reason why being an author is awesome

I haven't talked about Dogsled Dreams for a while, but felt the need to mention I found this little gem thanks to Google Alerts.


Imagining my book being read out loud in a classroom,
and those kids actually liking it so much, they don't want the teacher to stop,
and then those kids reading it again ON THEIR OWN

and then having the totally awesome teacher,
who not only reads to her class, but also blogs about books,
take the time to post this about my little book ...

well, there are no words.

just smiles.

What could be a bigger treat for a writer than to have kids re-read her book? That is a great anecdote.
And smiley dog has me grinning ear-to-ear. :D

What a wonderful surprise for you!

Jemi Fraser said...

*smiles* It was a fun one to write! In fact one of my students asked yesterday which bucket your book was in so he could read it! :)

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

That is fabulous! Isn't Google a wonder? Now I can hardly wait to lay eyes on your book.
Thanks so much for popping by today - so great to meet another local blogger!
And from everything I know about Jemi, she's a gem.
Congrats on the rave review!

Um, I forgot to mention - did you realize we both used that photo of the smiling dog this week????
My post, however, should not be read aloud to small children. Just saying....

Yippee! That is a great testimonial to your book, but it's not surprising. Of course they loved your book. What's not to love?

Terry, I tagged you on my blog for the Lucky Seven challenge if you are interested. If not, I understand.

I remember my girls learning about sledding when they were in elementary school - I wish they had had your book back then! I'm not surprised those kids liked it. :) Have a good weekend, Terry.

That is so awesome! I think that photo says it all. :)

That's one smiling dog!

I can't imagine what it would feel like to know classrooms are reading your book. You're living the life!
