A Family of Her Own for Candy - A Fun Children's Picture Book


Since yesterday was National Children's Picture Book Day, I thought I'd share another fun picture book with you. Two summers ago my husband, grandsons, and I went to the Humane Society to get a kitten. I wanted my grandsons to go with us because, first of all, they love all animals, secondly I wanted to be sure whatever cat we got was one which was able to be around my grandsons without being aggressive. We spent some time at the Humane Society and finally settled on a very sweet calico - which we named Candy, because she is sweet (and my middle grandson said she reminded him of candy corn.) 

I decided to write a story about Candy - part of it I know is true and part of it I'm imagining what it may have been like before Candy became part of our family. A Family of Her Own for Candy is this story, and this storybook is now available on Amazon (you will find the print copy at this link and the digital kindle ebook at this link.) If you know a child who loves kittens, and if you have a four-legged family member who you may have found at your Humane Society - or are thinking about a visit to your Humane Society as well - this is a story they are sure to love!

A Family of Her Own for Candy is a great book gift idea for birthdays and if you are so blessed to have your grandchildren spend time at your home on sleepovers, it makes a fantastic bedtime story! Plus, it is a fun story to use to encourage your young readers to read - especially as they are about to enjoy three months of Summer vacation. Please help me spread the word by sharing this post - thank you!
