Happy New Year. A lot of exciting things are happening in 2015. I am finishing up a new book, When You Pass Through the Waters, I starting this blog and I am working on a new website. Visit my website soon to learn about my children’s books and my poetry books.
In her new illustrated children’s book If I Were President, author Leila Leidtke draws inspiration from her grandchildren in a fun and rhyming story of a young boy who dreams of being the President of the United States. His adventures include a round trip ride from London to Scotland, an outer space walk, riding a camel in the circus and giving each family some kind of an animal. He is accompanied by his faithful yellow labrador and shadowed by a secret service man in sunglasses. The author’s intention is to encourage children to dream about their future and overcome obstacles to reach their goals.
