"Nana's Getting Married"
You guys might not know this about me, but I was a literary agent for children's books for 8 years. I represented some AMAZING writers and illustrators. I know a good book when I see one.
It's hard to get published - and EVEN harder to get a kid's book published - and EVENNNNNN HARDER to publish a GOOD children's book! So when I heard she had a book coming out I was so curious - I didn't even know she wrote children's books.
Well this was the best book about watching an older member of the family get re-married I had ever seen. Maybe because I'm a single mom and I know how kids feel about "new" family members. Or maybe because I watched my own mother remarry. Either way, this is a great, fun and well-written book about a boy who thinks he's losing his "Nana" to some guy "Bob", only to finally come to understand that he is gaining a great new grandpa."
You can buy it on Amazon.com or you can click through her website at www.heatherhartt.com and find direct links.
I know I need to tell you by law I got a free copy, but I don't put out a review of a children's book unless I really think it's great. And it is!
I, for one, APPROVE!
Good Luck Heather!
