And Now For Something Completely Different: Jameson's BIG Backyard by C.H. & J.L. Admirand

When our daughter and son-in-law announced that they were expecting, we were thrilled for them, and for ourselves at the prospect of becoming grandparents for the first time. But as an author, my brain started thinking of books that might appeal to our darling grandbaby-to-be.

We’ve always loved walks in the woods and being surrounded by Nature in all her glory. One thing led to another, and I started thinking that little ones need to spend more time outside and to get to know the creatures living in their own backyards. Birds, bees, bunnies, bears (yep we do live in the woods…LOL), frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes, creepy-crawlies, etc. 

Once I started thinking of backyards, I started thinking about the puppy we’d rescued when our grandson was two months old. Then life got crazy-busy–fast forward a few years, and we now had two grandsons and another puppy that we’d rescued. What were we thinking? We’d only ever had one dog at a time. In my own defense, I really did think Jamie was lonesome and that Reilly would be a great little puppy brother for him. LOL. Which is why I am now surrounded by men…two of the furry kind and three of the non-furry kind ;)

J.L. and I decided it was time to finish the children’s picture book we’d worked on and talked about. But we wanted it to be more than just Jameson’s story of finding his way to our house, we wanted to encourage parents and their children to learn about their own backyards, Nature, and the importance of opening your home and your hearts to puppies and kittens in need of fur-ever homes.

Jameson’s BIG Backyard is available in print (the best way to read it, IMHO) and in e-book format.

We’ll be releasing the companion coloring book mid-October, so stay tuned for that and Jameson’s next BIG adventure in his BIG backyard ;)
