Just wanted to share this book if you're looking for something different for a young child - say 5 to 8 maybe. I enjoyed it also and my neice loved it. It has pictures and is about a little girl and her family who lived in Oklahoma and how they went to a storm cellar when the weather got bad. Descriptive of tornadoes and storms but not really scary.

I found this new childrens book by a new author as well. The author was a music teacher for ~40yrs and now retired and penned two childrens books. A Cat's Tale and Stray Big Adventure by Troas Alexander. Great books with unpredictable endings and timeless lessons!

The title is Before the Twister Hits by Joy Stone who was also a teacher of 25 years. Sorry about not including the title. Can't believe I left that out. Guess I was so excited about the book, I forgot. Hope you'll like the book as much as we did. We've read it several times.

The Tree With No Branches by Johnny Knew is a wonderfully picture book about growing on the inside, growing what can't be seen, growing your roots deep. It's a wonderful story to read and has marvelous illustrations. You will love it. Here it is ... The Tree With No Branches (Johnny Knew's Children's Books)

Michael,

Self-promotion is not allowed except in the MOA. Please stop.

'Football is fantastic!' an ebook from the new author Paula McBride is a great little story for young children, aged around 6-9.
My son loved it! It's very funny and has a real dry humor to it.
Others must love it too because it's number 18 in the best sellers list for children, football.
I'd highly recommend it.

I find this post to be a little disingenuous. Just like the thread that you started under the book asking if there are any more books written by this author. If you are savvy enough to start a thread under the book then you know enough about Amazon to click on the author's name to go to their Author Central page.

Thanks nana Janet, you're right my other thread does come over a bit thick, I've realised! I obviously have looked at the author's page, but there were picture ebooks and a teenage ebook. What I was meant to be asking, are there any hardcover copies of her stories for the age range 6-9ish, as there is only one ebook for that age.

Thanks for replying. This forum has been killed by spamming. There was an attempt to revive it several months ago that sadly has been unsuccessful. It saddens me to no end to see a forum dedicated to children killed by authors who self-promote their books to the point that readers now avoid the forum like the plague. I sincerely apologize if you aren't the author or connected to the author. I should probably give up and stay away as well. *shrug* It seems that giving up is difficult for me.

Nana Janet - Everything you said is true; it is sad to see. I miss the interesting discussions but definitely NOT the spamming.

You would think that the authors who self-promote would realize that one can't advertise if all of the viewers have been driven away. So now they promote their books in a forum that no one visits. Sheesh. A little common sense would be helpful.

Working title: "Killing the Forum with Glee"!
Any other ideas for a title?

@jnstar
How about: "Hey, isn't my Baby Beautiful?" New author's are exuberant when their books are "delivered". It's hard to fathom that not everyone wants to see a picture! At the very least, there needs to be balance.

Mike,

Out of curiosity did you read the posts directly above your comment? The ones that discuss the fact that self-promotional posts are a violation of Amazon's TOS. If you were really trying to get advice on a technical issue then I have to wonder why you did not ask this question in KDP instead of coming here and posting a link to your book. Please delete your post. Thank you.

You're correct. We won't be able to get rid of the other 1000000000000000 people that do this here. Which is exactly why this forum has died. Actually, it didn't just die. It was killed by endless, incessant self-promotional posts.
