Preview of The Great Snowball Escapade by J.D. Holiday

Stories for Children Magazine is hosting a book tour in December. After I receive and read The Great Snowball Escapade, I will write a review and offer a book giveaway.  All followers of my blog will be eligible.  Contest details will be posted soon.   

From the Publisher: The Great Snowball Escapade by J.D. Holiday is a 90 page chapter book for six to eight year olds. Its young readers will have many enjoyable hours reading about Wil, her cousin Bud and her friends.

Wilhemena Brooks' cousin, Bud Dunphry comes to live with her family. Wil, as she likes to be called, finds her pink pencil sharpener is missing after Christmas. Wil knows Bud has it! Who else would have taken it? Bud doesn't like girls! In fact, Bud doesn't like anybody. Wil tries to ignore him but he pulls her friend’s hair and takes over games.  When Bud is in trouble he makes his "you're going to get it" face at her. After a snowstorm closes school, Wil and her friends go sled riding. Bud shows up and starts a snowball fight, which lands Wil in her room for the rest of the day for fighting. When her pencil sharpener is found, right where she left it, Wil decides she has to try harder to understand her cousin and stay out of trouble. Her mother told her to be nice to Bud and to treat him like she would like to be treated. If Wil treats Bud nicely does that change anything for her?

I look forward to sharing J. D. Holiday’s book with you.
