Flap, Flap, Flitter It's that special time of day!

The clock strikes 8:08
And Bob has something to say!
You’ll learn that passings
don’t have to be so tragic,
when you open your heart
to the possibility of magic!
This book tackles the very sensitive subject of losing a pet with poetic grace and inspiring illustrations!

Book Signing

Laura and Dominic love to sign books! They also understand that not all families can afford them, which is why they prefer that the books are ordered ahead of time through the school. We can provide a preorder form upon request. After the author and illustrator sign each book, we ask that the teachers distribute them in their own time so those who were unable to purchase a book don’t feel left out.
