    Not sure exactly what this means, but I’ve also heard authors saying I’m doing the Snoopy dance. Okay, so I’m doing the Snoopy Dance for you.
    In all seriousness, I’m so happy for you. Keep on writing.

      Thank you. We have a one year old grandson and I will be reading the book to him. The target audience would probably be Pre-K through 3rd grade, depending on reading level. The message is the most important part of the book. 🙂
