I wanted to convey in this story that these little nuts go through many obstacles during their adventure, but they never give up and they always stick together.  That is what family is all about, isn’t it?  Never giving up on one another and always being there. 

Here is what some readers have to say about The Nutt Family:

The great illustrations, layout, and use of color flow smoothly to complement the storyline. ”

“There is also an Acorn Fact Sheet at the end of the book that was a pleasant surprise! ”

“This is a hilarious picture book! I love the names of the Nutt family, Filbert, Hazel, Chess and Praline (come on, that’s FUNNY).”

Book Features


It’s an exciting day as we have Lil Glimmer featured on Bargain Books blog today here.   Lil Glimmer is the story of a star who learns patience and sharing.  He gets frustrated when he doesn’t get his way, but in the end he listens to his mother and realizes that waiting and taking his turn is the right thing to do.  These lessons can be hard to accept as a toddler, but this story helped me illustrate these principles of patience and sharing to my own children. 

We also have The Nutt Family:  An Acorny Adventure being spotlighted on Will’s Library here. Chess Nutt and his sister, Praline, are always pretending to have crazy adventures.  What happens when these two acorn siblings have an unexpected real adventure on their own?  Things get a little bit nutty of course!

Both of these stories are available at Amazon in either paperback or kindle versions.  Click each cover to read reviews and learn more!
