A bit about my new children book…

Odessa Ostrich enjoys playing dress-up as a princess and driving her unique bus. On a special ride with several neighborhood friends, they are invited to share a meal with Odessa’s grandfather, Pappy-O. When the friends bring casseroles to take to dinner, Odessa is sad because she believes she has nothing to share. Her friends show her that sharing also means offering friendship and treating others with kindness and love. Odessa knows she is a very blessed ostrich and always remembers to thank God for His many blessings of family, friends and her princess bus.


“Being Kind & Friendly”

This is a very beautifully written story of just being kind and friendly. The colors are fabulous and really keep your imagination till the end. Hope this author can continue to publish such meaningful stories.  May God continue to bless you with your writing
