A Giant Ginger Garbula likes globe-trotting, gondola riding, gargoyle searching and gem gathering. They even like to gallivant, gallop, guffaw and guzzle! Read this fun tongue-twister and laugh as a Giant Ginger Garbula shows you colorful places and tries different things.
When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
Many of our usual traditions have been put on hold this year as COVID moved in. We will not be celebrating with traditional foods or having family come through our door, ready to work in my "one butt kitchen" to help, laugh, and share as in previous gatherings. This will be the first Thanksgiving for the two of us since my husband was stationed in S. Carolina. I made my first Thanksgiving dinner (leaving the "innards" inside the turkey), made Mom's best ever dressing, and managed to have a pumpkin pie all on our military budget.
Celebrations and memories fill my heart with thanks.
This book is a product of COVID quarantine and while I won't be fixing any of Garbula's food choices, I am thankful for this 5 STAR book because it has made young readers laugh and learn!
