You can listen to my story and 11 other weird flash fiction stories from the contest results episode of the podcast mine starts at , or read it in the comments section. So, what is my story about? There were no ceremonies and no witnesses. Twelve days before Christmas, in the middle of the Shaker Hills Mall parking lot, the tree appeared overnight.
Driven clear through the asphalt, its expansive width obliterated several rows of prime parking spaces. Gnarled bark and cankerous knots pocked its sooty trunk.
I thought of the story more than a year ago as a possible drabble, but never actually wrote it due to laziness. I originally came up with the idea while commuting, which I have found where most of my stories are born. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

A couple of years ago, a dog turned up in my life.

He was found down the street from my house, on Memorial Day, with rope tied to his neck. He was a gentle, rust colored, Lab mix and I fell in love with him that very day and adopted him. Being a new dog person, this sounded like a good premise for a picture book, so I wrote it. After some rounds and revisions with my critique group, I polished it to the best of my ability, at the time, and submitted it for review to an agent while attending the SCBWI Working Writer's Retreat Submitting a newer story to an agent is almost never a good idea.
But, I really wanted the feedback on this particular story. And yes, there was that secret hope that the agent would love my story as much as I loved it and sign me on the spot. That didn't happen. But, I did receive the feedback. There were no comments about my writing style, voice, sentence structure, or plot development. Instead, she nailed me on originality. As it turns out, I was not the first person to write a story about a stray dog. I wanted to believe that my story was different.
My dog was special. My story was special, too.

Yes, my story was different, but In fact, it won the Caldecott Honor in I pondered for many hours trying to rethink my story and still could not come up with an angle that felt fresh, current and relevant. So, my dog story sits in the back of my brain somewhere, as I revise other stories I am working on. It is about a dog that wonders how excellent he must be to share in his family's privileges. This clever story is about a family dog, rather than a stray, but, nevertheless, clever stories make me think. But, my dog deserves the story, so, I will not give up. In fact, new ideas are already coming to mind.
This experience will make my book better, and in the process, I've discovered two picture book gems! It's a win-win! Happy reading and writing, Moni.

What are the names of some of the pancakes? And where did the recipes come from? There are 12 in all, each with a fun rhyming description. What makes this book different from other educational math learning books. This is an open ended learning tool. Because the kids get to play with it and choose what they want to order, the children tend to be more invested in finding out what their order total is and working with the money. What aspect of the book do kids seem to enjoy the most?
It really varies from kid to kid. I've had some just love to play with it, but I've had other children beg their parents to get it for them so they can actually make the pancakes. What grade levels can use this book? And which common core standards does it address? It is mainly for later 2nd grade through early 5th grade according to the common core standards, but there are a few ways Kinder and 1st grades can use it too. For years of waiting and being passed on, I decided if no other publishing house publishes a book like mine, I'll have to have my own company do it.
The process was pretty simple Make a video, tell everyone you know, and reach out to those you think it would apply to. It does take time, planning, and all of that, but in the end, I'm happy I did it.
Fulfillment was a bit challenging--trying to get all the orders out quickly, once the book came in. How did you make decisions on art and the design of the book. What did you learn the first time around that will make it easier for your next book? Feels like everything! I think I did a pretty good job the first go, so now I just need to make sure I do all the steps correctly again.
Which job is more challenging, educator or author? They both have their pros and cons. I'd say that an educator is an extremely demanding job, but it's extremely rewarding too. As an author there is much more rejection involved in the publishing process, but I've learned a lot too. It's a toss up on which one is more challenging! In your video, you mention it is first in a series.
