Miki's Hope is giving away a $25 Amazon or $25 PayPal to one lucky winner who is 18 or older- WW and the Rafflecopter is short and easy (unlike some school courses I've taken over the years!!) But to keep this within the School Event theme-somwhat-now don't worry-no geometry, calculus, or foreign languages--I would like to introduce you to a book one of MY high school friends wrote (she is an educator herself-just retired-and is probably going to tell me all about the grammar mistakes I'm making!! Oh well--it's been years!!

Buddy Comes To Breakfast by Dee Emeigh
Dee Emeigh is a lot of things (besides being one of my oldest friends). You may have seen her name on my blog before as I introduced you to the beautiful songs she writes and sings. She also wrote a book a while back which I featured on my blog. And now that she is finally retired from teaching she has written an adorable and informative children's book about a Desert Tortoise she met while visiting a friend in Neveda. This book incorporates facts about Desert Tortoises, facts about the area where they live, what they eat all in a way that will have children learning while enjoying the experience! Did I mention that Dee is also an artist? Well she is and all the beautifully detailed illustrations were conceived and drawn by Dee herself. I think even younger children would love to look at these pictures as their parents read to them. Dee has written a beautiful poem about friendship that go along with the pictures for the younger set as they are being read to. And parents you are sure to enjoy this book as well-I know I did.

Excerpt from the poem by Dee Emeigh:
"Sometimes friends live far away. 
But friends are friends both night and day. 
Friends can live in places high. 
Friends can live in places dry."

About the Book: (from Amazon) This delightful non-fiction book is written at a 6th grade level, making it appropriate for elementary school reading, but the story and illustrations make it appealing for any age. While visiting a friend in Nevada, the author meets and becomes enamored with an adopted Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii), named Buddy, who lives in the back yard. Facts about Buddy and his “cousins” are woven through the story as well as a message of friendship. The Desert Tortoise has been on the Federal Endangered Species list as “threatened” for more than a decade. The book includes lists of websites for more information as well as important words to know. Quantity discounts and a directed reading and thinking guide are available for educators through the author’s website.

About the Author: (and Illustrator I might add!!) (From Amazon)
With credits ranging from songwriting to feature writing for local newspapers, Dee Marvin Emeigh is primarily a creative non-fiction writer. Additionally a former photojournalist with images published around the globe, her latest book, "Buddy Comes to Breakfast" (2015) about an adopted Desert Tortoise, is a testimony to her talent as a writer, photographer, and watercolor artist. The new children's non-fiction book follows three years after the release of her ground-breaking book, "Cafeteria Covenant," an autobiographical narrative revealing the pretty, but powerless counterfeit that church has become, along with a dynamic and revolutionary look at the New Testament.

Emeigh has also produced three solo inspirational albums and two professional music videos ("Go On" and "With Us"). Two selections from her most recent CD project, Well SEASONED (2011), received radio play internationally. She holds a B.S. in Literature and M. Ed. degrees in Reading (Specialist) and TESOL Literacy and has taught secondary English and reading interventions, as well as graduate classes in children's literature and language acquisition.

  1. Thank you so much for helping to spread the word about Buddy. I know he must have lots of tortoise-loving friends in the UK. Reviews are greatly appreciated as well!
