by Phyllis Harris

I might be 60, yet I am simply starting! C.S. Lewis claimed, “It is never ever far too late to fantasize brand-new desires!”

Over the previous 25 years, I have actually highlighted over 30 publications for youngsters for great deals of various styles, yet I have actually constantly imagined creating and also highlighting my very own publications. It had not been up until I took a sabbatical from the image side to actually sharpen my craft of creating and also offer it the moment it required, prior to I had the ability to really seek my objective of ending up being a released writer of youngsters’s photo publications. When I did that, I had the ability to produce some tales I enjoyed and also ultimately authorize with a fantastic literary representative, Adria Goetz. A year afterwards, my long-lasting desire became a reality with the magazine of my Xmas photo publication, THE PRESENT STORE BEAR. It was released by WorthyKids, The Hachette Publication Team, in 2015.

I additionally wished to share an enjoyable backstory of the motivation behind THE PRESENT STORE BEAR. I was babysitting my granddaughter when she was 3 or 4 years of ages and also we were undergoing her mother’s plaything upper body. We stumbled upon her mommy’s old teddy bear, that had actually been stashed because dark box for several years, and also she was extremely depressing to assume that old bear had actually not been enjoyed or looked after as long. It went to that minute, the tale suggestion for THE PRESENT STORE BEAR was birthed!

All year long, Bear views from his place in the attic room as the periods adjustment, waiting on the very first snows that indicate Xmas is coming. You see, at Christmastime, Bear reaches join his unique close friend, Annie, in the celebrations in her grandmother’s present store. This year is various—- the present store is shutting and also Bear’s future appears unsure. Will Bear see Annie and also Nana once again? The heartfelt verdict will certainly make this tale a family members fave at Christmastime yearly. Author-illustrator Phyllis Harris brings a heat and also comfort to her art and also narration that offer guide the classic feeling of a Xmas standard.

I really think that regardless of our age, if we persist, it will certainly take place. Laura Ingalls Wilder, writer of the Little Home collection, was very first released at 65 years of ages and also I maintained that in the rear of my mind as I pursued my objective of being released as a writer.

If I can do it, so can every one of you!
