Book Tour – Part I Report

Show Me How! picWhile in NH, I had the added treat of meeting Author and Kid Lit Blogger of Picture Books Help Kids Soar, Vivian Kirkfield.  What a delight! Her book, “Show me How!” is a wonderful resource guide for parents and educators to promote children’s self- esteem through reading, crafting, and cooking.  The six chapters are organized by six different positive emotional messages conveyed in picture books and each page highlights one classic story book that is matched by a craft project and a cooking activity. I wish I had this book when I was raising my kids!

I’m happy to report that Part I of my book tour, Boston South Shore and Southern New Hampshire, was a success! Lonely Lola Ladybug was well received by all of the six independent book stores that I visited. The owners or buyers not only agreed to carry my book but three of them invited me back for a book signing event in the fall! With that kind of response, I wish I had had more time to visit more book stores…maybe next fall. Book Tour Part II to Chicago and Milwaukee starts a week from today and I cannot wait to see what happen there!

  1. What a lovely review, Mary Jo! Thank you so much…it was such a pleasure to meet you and share our writing journeys. I’m thrilled you had such great success on your book tour…and how wonderful that Lonely Lola Ladybug will be available to children in this area. I hope we will get together again when you return to New England for the bookstore events.

    • Your welcome Vivian! I think your book, Show Me How is a treasure and I hope we can meet up again the next time I come to NH…maybe for a book signing at the Toad Stool Book store!

  2. How wonderful MJ!!! So excited to hear you and Lola have been well received. Happy traveling!
