Happy Friday everyone!

we’re thrilled to introduce our listeners to a very talented children’s book author, Shannon Stocker!

Shannon is joining us to celebrate her debut picture book, Can U Save the Day?  It’s a beautiful picture book that showcases how funny words look when they drop a few letters. It not only teaches kids about the alphabet, animal sounds, and spelling but it also focuses on the importance of vowels to the alphabet.

Shannon is joining us to talk about her book, her journey of becoming a children’s author, her advice on helping children remember and honor their loved ones, what inspires her work & much more. We hope you enjoy her interview as much as we did recording it. Be Sure to Tune In!

B is an awfully boastful bloke and when he and the rest of the alphabet get together, he can’t help but tease the vowels about their small numbers. So the vowels begin to take off, one by one. The consonants–and the rest of the farm–see just how important vowels really are. With disaster looming and B seeing the error of his ways, can U save the day and set the alphabet right again?
