I love writing for children. It is incredibly challenging, and now that I have sooooo many grandchildren, I feel that it is more important than ever to get them and keep them reading.
This is one of my earlier works. It focuses on encouraging children to chase their dreams and embrace their imagination. It is a positive, fun-filled story of adventure and exploration. It tells the story of Red Beak as she chases after the sun to find where it goes at night.
Chasing the Sun is a positive, fun-filled story of adventure and exploration. Red Beak lives on the beach with her family, splashing and dashing through the waves during the day, but in the evenings as she nestles into her nest with her grandmother she watches the sun go down and wonders where it goes. One day she decides to find out for herself and sets off on an adventure that expands her horizon and her understanding of the world.
Join Red Beak as she chases after the sun to find out where it goes at night. Children ages 2-6 will enjoy this wonderful story and beautiful illustrations as they learn to read and learn the power and wonder of asking … why.
Chasing the Sun was written as part of a capstone project under the guidance of his then Academic Advisor, Lucille Clifton in 1993. It was later illustrated by Julie Leiman Weaver, and originally published in 2018. We are obligated to encourage our children’s imagination. We must do all that we can to inspire them to ask questions and to wonder … what if?
