Interview:

Hey Tom!! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! ABCs AND 123s FOR BOYS sounds like a fun and educational read for kids and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about ABCs AND 123s FOR BOYS and why you decided to write it?

In searching for ABCs books for boys, I found most were juvenile or creatively flat. So, I created 26 fun alphabet scenes, rhymes, and characters. Each letter features a boy’s name. So, kids will discover ALEX the alligator who is an amazing astronaut to ZACK the zebra who ziplines over the zoo! Plus, we added fun animal scenes to help kids count to 10. If kids are engaged in the story, they’re learning.

What are you working on now?

Of course, I’m writing ABCs and 123s for Girls.

I’m creating an ABCs and 123s for Boys coloring book. I also wrote the first Pete the Pirate book. It’s a series that features lessons and adventures of one of my favorite characters in ABCs and 123s for Boys.

What is your favorite passages/letter in ABCs AND 123s FOR BOYS?

Some of my favorite scenes include little surprises for kids to discover. In the picnic scene for the letter H, you’ll find ants sneaking away with a hotdog.

What inspired you to write kidlit?

My Dad tucked three boys into bed at night and told us stories. Later, it was my turn to tuck two boys into bed and read to them. I loved it as much as they did.

I want to create illustrated books that ignite kid’s imagination and create the storytime bond that I enjoyed. Providing a learning experience – helping preschoolers learn the alphabet, letter sounds, and numbers – adds another rewarding dimension.
