Where to download the e-book


I’m currently waiting for approval so that my book can be included in a catalog that will be distributed to the Apple iBookstore as well as other major retailers like Barnes and Noble. I expect that this will be happening soon. When it does, I will also announce it here. You can also sample or purchase the book through the Smashwords site by visiting https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/179170.

The reception for this book has been heartwarming and I am so appreciative to everyone that has supported me on this journey.

1st e-book published

I’m so excited to announce that Unlocking the Mystery of the Alphabet is finally published! Written originally for my daughter, it’s been patiently waiting for me to find a home for it. Along the way, I’ve gotten a lot of support and encouragement. I thank all of you who have supported me along this journey.  At one point, I was told that it should be published because “what blesses one, blesses all.” That is my hope.

This book helped build a strong literacy foundation for our daughter as well as an insatiable love of learning.  Along with another curriculum that I designed, she entered kindergarten devouring early chapter books.  It is with this hope that I published my first e-book. With the ideas in this book, teachers and parents  can work more effectively to introduce reading to their students. Once kids discover this first key to unlocking this “mysterious code,” they begin a journey that will last a lifetime.

Check out my new e-book at Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, and Apple (just to name a few.) As a resource book, it  focuses on over 200 activities for letter-sound recognition. It is also expected to be in e-book format with other major retailers within the next week or so. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/179170
