I’m Delighted By This News

I have a passion for make reading fun and accessible, especially for those with reading challenges. It is important to me and a legacy I’d love to leave the world.
Pamela Beckford of United Way of Wells County Indiana has selected my children’s books for use in their early literacy efforts to help young children learn to read. A part of that effort is to make and post You-Tube recordings of fun books being read. I received an update today that three of my children’s books have been recorded and will soon be available on YouTube, with more  to follow. I’m delighted that through the efforts of United Way in Indiana my books will help more children discover how fun, entertaining, and rewarding reading can be.
Thank you for supporting my writing efforts and for your friendship.
With love,
Russ

  1. How wonderful Russ… and along with learning reading, fun and rewarding, I think they will learn a little more about ‘kindness’ to others… Diane
