Fall is in the air! Yay!

HERE IN CALIFORNIA, THE LEAVES ARE BEGINNING TO FALL...WE HAVE HAD OUR FIRST RAIN WHICH WASHED AWAY THE DUST AND ASH FROM THE FIRES WE EXPERIENCED OVER THE SUMMER.

IF YOU DIDN'T SEE MY LAST POST ABOUT THE CHILDREN'S BOOK 'WHALE IN THE FISHBOWL' PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!  THE BOOK HAS NOW BEEN PUBLISHED IN CHINESE, JAPANESE, AND SOON TO BE FRENCH! 

THE BOOK IS ABOUT A LITTLE GIRL WHO GOES TO VISIT 'WEDNESDAY', A BEAUTIFUL WHALE, WHO IS SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF A CITY IN A HUGE FISHBOWL.  'WEDNESDAY' LOVES TO LOOK AT A PATCH OF BLUE WHEN SHE JUMPS HIGH ENOUGH.  SHE IS NOT QUITE SURE WHAT THE PATCH OF BLUE IS.  SO, ONE DAY, SHE ASKS PIPER, THE LITTLE GIRL WHAT THE PATCH OF BLUE IS IN THE DISTANCE.  PIPER ANSWERS: "IT'S THE SEA!" AND SHE PROCEEDS TO TELL 'WEDNESDAY' THAT SHE DOESN'T BELONG IN A FISHBOWL BUT IN THE SEA.

FROM THAT DAY FORWARD 'WEDNESDAY' DETERMINES TO FIND A WAY TO GET TO THE SEA.

THE BOOK IS ABOUT SEEKING THE UNATTAINABLE, AND COURAGE, AND FRIENDSHIP. 'WEDNESDAY' DOES END UP TAKING A GIANT LEAP.  PLEASE READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT WHERE HER GIANT LEAP TAKES HER. 

THE MONTH OF MAY WAS A MONTH OF GLADNESS AS THE BOOK WAS THE BOOK OF THE MONTH CHOSEN BY AMAZON BOOKS!  THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER REVIEWS OF THE BOOK ONLINE.  JUST TYPE IN 'WHALE IN THE FISHBOWL' BY TROY HOWELL TO READ REVIEWS AND ALSO IF YOU SO DESIRE TO ORDER COPIES OF THE BOOK FOR THE CHILDREN IN YOUR LIFE.   THE BOOK PROMISES TO BE ONE READ BY MANY GENERATIONS TO COME.  IT IS A TIMELESS BOOK ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND FREEDOM.
