What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Fear can stop us from doing the things we want to do and from becoming who we want to be. I wanted to write a book for children that would be fun but also show kids that they can face and conquer their fears. This book is the result of that wish!
Abigail shaded her eyes and wiped five drips of sweat from her forehead.
“It’s hot enough to fry bacon on the sidewalk,” said her friend Elmer.
Abigail plopped down beside him in the shade of a huge oak tree. In the sizzling air, the leaves on the tree drooped like wilted balloons.
“Let’s go swimming!” said Elmer. “Come on! I have a pool in my backyard.”
Worry wiggled its way through Abigail’s tummy. “Go without me,” she said.
“But everything is more fun when you bring a friend,” said Elmer.
