I read this book and loved it so much that I took it to a writing conference. We were studying pitches. Amy’s is on the back cover. It says – ‘What’s stopping this little bear . . . from gobbling these delicious cookies? Her tea party rules.
Amy’s pitch describes the book perfectly! Whenever I look for new children’s books, I start with the cover, and I love this one. Then I read the pitch on the back. It’s a promise to the reader, and this one delivered with a great story about the bear, the little girl, and those tea party rules. I loved it so much I took it to a kids’ lit conference.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
