Sneak Peak of Grandma is a Slowpoke


Here's a sneak-peak of our February 2016 title, Grandma is a Slowpoke that has already been reviewed by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Review


        Written by Janet Halfmann and illustrated by Michele Coxon, Grandma is a Slowpoke is a simple story that delivers a joyous message to young readers- to pause, stop and be present with the creatures around us. Janet Halfmann’s delightful story encourages children to observe nature. Michele Coxon’s exceptionally fine illustrations bring life to the creatures on each page, and make the animals so endearing.

“Halfmann gracefully delivers a message about living in the moment, while closing details about the animals that appear should intrigue wildlife enthusiasts.”
   -Publishers Weekly, Dec. 2015

“Halfmann’s nature walk from a child’s perspective is spot-on, neatly capturing the grandparent-grandchild dynamic….. A sweet celebration of intergenerational slowpokery.” 
- Kirkus Review, Dec. 2015
