My blog gatlinslegacyoflove.com showcases my love of literature and my passion for writing books for children.

HAPPY SUNDAY! For the past 40 years teaching a variety of grade levels, my favorite is primary age children. Ages 5 through 9 years old children are the best. In the elementary classroom, every day, I read at least two picture books. I feel that the way to instill a life-long love reading is to expose children to engaging stories that uplift them and touch their hearts. When I retired in 2015, these past experiences in my classroom, lead to a wish to write the books I would have wanted to read. My website has been completely revamped. Same link but totally NEW, thanks to the expert doings of my Web Builder Sam Shumate. If you are looking to redo your own website, I would recommend him. If you are interested write in my comment section, ”I want Sam,” and I’ll get you his number. He is reasonably priced and
very experienced. Please like my blog to follow and share with your friends.
I have 3 self-published books on Amazon:

GRANNY’S COBBLER A COUNTING BOOK - 2nd Edition paperback
AGGIE’S PURPLE HANDS - 2nd Edition paperback
FIRECAT RESCUE - Newest paperback

Good job! Glad to see more interactive blogs. If you added in the clue list that the Super Bowl was just there, everyone would get the answer right.
