RWYK Interview – Introducing two Wonderful Kidlits: I Hate Numbers & A B C See Hear Do Series!
Happy Tuesday everyone,
Today we had the pleasure to talk to two wonderful children’s books author and illustrator & a mom and daughter duo, Nita Marie Clark & Kathy Doherty. Nita and Kathy are joining us to talk about their second picture book: I Hate Numbers.
I hate Numbers is a picture book that is perfect for that child or even the adult, who dislikes math. You will laugh your way through Nita’s dislike for numbers. In the end, she realizes that no matter how much they drove her wild as a child, numbers and what they do are a necessary part of life.
We also speak with Stefanie Hohl, RWYK certified great read author of a wonderful children’s picture book ABC See, Hear, Do Series, a great resource for teaching kids about letter sounds and learning to read. Stefanie’s books uses pictures, sounds and hand motions to help children remember the sounds we use in our language and blending them into words thus helping children to widen their vocabulary to 55 words. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did recording it!
More about Nita Marie Clark
Nita Marie Clark, a resident of Stark County Ohio, is an active and motivated senior citizen. Nita has held many interesting roles in her over eighty years of life; wife, mother, grandparent, elementary school librarian, volunteering in; scouting, educational associations, and other non-profit groups. Along the way at the age of fifty Nita, decided to become an entrepreneur. Starting her own unique business that is still in operation today.
Two years ago at the encouragement of her Great Granddaughter Lillian, her journey took a new path as an author, releasing her first book for middle-grade readers; The Royal Search For Shenanigans. Her second release is a thirty-eight-page children’s picture book; Why Dandelions Grow, and now her third release, I Hate Numbers, a thirty-two-page children’s picture book.
The Royal Search for Shenanigans is a tale of a grand adventure. Young Princess Lillian must navigate her changing life, going from third in line for the throne to second in line. While moving into her new quarters in the magnificent castle Lillian learns more about her ancestors, family secrets, and a three-hundred-year-old curse. It is there in her new quarters she finds a hidden satchel, Lillian discovers that her destiny had been written long ago by three other special Princesses of Zen. Solving the mysteries and secrets, with helpful friends and royal cousins, a little bit of fun and humor, and don’t forget a large mischievous green and yellow dragon, Lillian becomes a strong leader and the special princess that the secret Land of Shenanigans has been waiting for.
Her first picture book; Why Dandelions Grow, is a tribute to all of the little children and mothers that have shared the experience of picking and receiving the loving gift of a lowly little dandelion. With two more manuscripts in the works, this senior citizen is looking forward to enjoying her newest role in life as an author.
Nita firmly believes that we each have a unique story to tell, and those stories should be put down on paper. To someone someday it could be the most amazing thing ever written!
