I grew up with parents and sisters who believed snuggling and laughing were a part of reading picture books.
That probably explains my love and enthusiasm for writing and illustrating stories for kids!
Stories are fun, but it’s more than that…each book a child reads is a doorway into understanding more about herself and more about the world she lives in.
I want to create those doorways—to laughter, to learning, to imagined worlds, and most importantly…
to connecting with each other.

Midge came home from hospital with a cuddly toy called Moo. Now Midge and Moo enjoy everyday life, from mud to peas, in an everyday home, nicely illustrated in Kerry McQuaide’s simply picture book, A Day with Moo.
The illustrations are bright and pleasingly different. Facial expressions are fun. And Midge’s relationship with Moo is exactly as it should be.
The writing’s clear and simple too, though I found myself surprised by the lack of repetition – that probably tells you more about me than the book.
A Day with Moo is a fun little picture book to share with children and cuddly friends, in home or preschool as well.
Disclosure: I learned that it was free so I bought it.
