Tell us about you! Are you a children's book author, a parent looking for books for your children, or a combination of both? Maybe you are a grandparent that loves to read with your grandchildren. Are you an avid children's book reader? Share with us why you are here. Don't forget to invite your children's books authors and readers to contribute.

I am Sojourner McConnell. I am a writer that has recently (Friday) published my first children's book. I am already deep in research for the second in the series. I have always loved children's books and that has not decreased with age. I am a grandmother and I love reading along with my grandchildren.

It is about a magical cat that comes to help a child that is sad because of a decision her parents made. Dolcey assists Emily in making some decisions about her future. Who's That in the Cat Pajamas?

She asked me to send her a signed copy. She was my reader before I published. She loved it and said that she wants to read the next one too. She went on Instagram and said she read a great book. That made me so thrilled. She was my first child reader.

Marie and Mr. Bee --What happens when a not-so-busy bee entices a little girl to neglect her work?
Little Bunny's Own Storybook --What does a library-loving rabbit do when his favorite place closes for inventory?
Tommy, Tina and Katie Kat, noble heroes of Scissortown; Marie and Mr. Bee; and Little Bunny are all happy to answer your questions about their adventures. They invite you to visit Margaret Welwood's Amazon Author page here:
