The “Bedside Story Collection Series” is 12 colored printed and e-books (kindle) that span across the 12 months of the year. Each monthly story is unique and illustrated by the original drawings of children whose interpretation of the words can only be seen through their eyes. These stories are written to further the imagination of children and to strengthen the parent and child bond through the sharing of heartwarming, silly, absurd and believably impossible tales.

As a doctorate level practitioner serving school children for more than 35 years, I became keenly aware that children and their parents often had in short supply what families needed the most:  open communication and sharing time together.  Twelve Upon A Time… was written to provide families a moment here and a moment there to come together and share heartwarming, silly and believably unbelievable tales.

The stories are tied typically to the main holiday or theme of each month, more or less.  The characters in the stories are based on what children relate to the most… animals and other children.  There are also over 100 colored drawings sketched by children ranging from 7 months to 12 years of age.  The stories from my imagination and the drawings from theirs come together to stimulate the imaginations of children and open a whole new world for parents and their children to share.

That is my gift to your family.  Time for sharing… time for laughing… time for talking… time for each other.  Not once upon a time, but Twelve Upon A Time….
