Debbi and ​Joani at t​heir Joseph Beth Book Signing

Jack and Remy had their debut at Joseph Beth Book Store on Thursday, Nov 1st.

 a wonderful crowd who was entertained with

a song Joani composed and preformed about the 2 friends.  Debbi and Joani Then read the story and personalized books.   A good time was had by all.  

 After Joani and Debbi read to the students at Summit Elementary, the  children were treated to music by Robin Lacy & DeZydeco

(notice Robin's accordion and Joani with her rubboard.)


Debbi Kern and Nancy Orlando - guest speakers at a local school

My First author was Nancy Orlando.  We now have 4 books out with another on the way.

There is no greater joy for me as a retired elementary art teacher than being back in a classroom entertaining the kids.    I love to  travel with my authors, we've visited schools, libraries, book stores, summer camps, anywhere there are kids wanting to be read to.  In addition I  give  mini art lessons.  There is no charge for our visit, however we do ask that the children are given the opportunity to purchase books if they desire.

This young student is holding up the raccoon mask he 

received after we read A Garden! A Garden!


Although A Garden!  A Garden!  is ideal for the younger student (1st-2nd grade) Nancy and I have read this story to 

children as old as 5th grade.  When we have the older children, we emphasis more the learning process we

went through as we published this, our first book.  Mistakes, corrections and dealing with the publisher and printer is as much a story as is the actual story.    We will gladly target any lesson you want us to incorporate into your class.
