Summer Reading 2021

Tails and Tales

I am so excited for the upcoming Summer Reading programs this year.

As with many others, I was sad when library activities were canceled due to COVID-19, especially when the theme was one of my favorites:


Since every year has a determined theme, I was told this year’s was supposed to involve animals.

I love a good puppy dog story as much as the next person, but I was a little sad to have missed a summer filled with dragons, knights, and magic.

I guess I wasn’t the only one.

Later, I found out that this year we could still have the touch of the magical as they decided to combine last year and this year together into …

Tails and Tales.

A Book About Tails and Tales

I love tales of all sort:

  • Adventure Tales (I love my Tuck books)
  • Scary Tales (Except when they give me Scooby Doo meets The Haunting dreams at night)
  • Funny Tales (Ironically, I find irony one of my favorite humors)
  • Silly Tales
  • Historic Tales
  • Mythological Tales
  • And More

I also love animals, which all have tales of their own

So, when I was talking with one of my friends, who happens to be an amazing librarian, inspiration struck.

I was going to write a book, but not just any book.

I was going to write one that would go along with this year’s summer reading theme, while still basing it around a empowering message.

The result is my new book, The Thief of Tales.

I am very excited for this new release.

Not only is it a beautifully illustrated book, but I love the message that was born from it.

It will officially be available on Amazon and other retailers in April.

However, I’m not going to give away any spoilers, except for one clue.

It involves tails and tales.

Thank You to Librarians Everywhere

I want to take this moment to thank all of the librarians who work so hard to provide these fun and needed programs to the children around the country.

It is hard to find the resources that you need to bring quality programs to your areas, yet you somehow manage to do it.

You are amazing and some of the unspoken heroes in your communities.

Thank you for all that you do!
