Fantastic Reading at Indian Rocks Beach!

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous two weeks visiting our daughter and son-in-law in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. We went to the beach, the Chihuly Museum, the aquarium, a tree lighting, tons of garage sales, out on the boat, the villa, the bird sanctuary and many restaurants. We were also in a Christmas parade!! We threw beads and candy to the observers as well as dog bones to the dogs. So Cool!

I was also asked to read my books at the library. Although the children that attended were a little older than usual, we had a great time. They loved jumping on my consonant blends and throwing a bean bag in the basket.

The children were very interested in the recycling crafts and games. They even said, "Can we do more?"As you might imagine, I was thrilled!
I should be appearing in the Indian Rocks Beach newspaper.  Next time we visit I'll schedule the other libraries.

  1. Woweee, sounds like you had a great time down there and I should know, I was with you and it was a blast. We had the opportunity to visit our son-in-law Doug's parents and explore the island too. The librarian, Jane Mitchell was cool too, and herself has three published books.
