About Carla Reighard

Carla grew up in Colorado among more animals than humans. Her imagination was her main companion, so she began weaving tales before she could write. As an adult, Carla created a book as a gift for her niece, Elle. This was the birth of Elle’s Magical Shoes, and her dream to become a published author.

Carla still lives in Colorado with her husband and cat, Hobbes. She has a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, and worked six years as a third grade teacher. When she isn't at her current job as an administrative coordinator, she looks for opportunities to pursue her passions: writing and traveling.


Review by: Dawn Reed on July 08, 2015 :
"Elle’s Magical Shoes" is an enjoyable book. It incorporates many themes: generosity, friendship, family, and forgiveness to name just a few.

The author effectively weaves Elle’s story, which occurs in the real world, with a story occurring in the fairy world. Although the stories are linked from early in the book, I didn’t fully anticipate the way she brought them together in the conclusion.

I teach 4th and 5th graders. "Elle’s Magical Shoes" will delight girls of upper elementary age. Children could read it independently, but it is also a book that parents and children could read together allowing it to spark some interesting discussions.

This was a strong debut. I look forward to future books from this author.
