Jazzy's new book, Counting with Jazzy, is about to be published. In the making of the book, I've acquired a pumpkin, two peacocks, three pigs (well two since Jazzy ate one), four dolls, five chicks, seven penguins and eight dragons. I still have a few other stuffed animals from her Twelve Days of Christmas. One could say I have a surplus of stuffed animals and nobody to give them to.

That's when it hit me, I could use them as prizes. So, for every child that completes the challenges listed in Jazzy's Guide to Summertime Fun, I will send a stuffed animal.

Here are the rules.

  1. Please print off a copy of the list of items to complete and check them off as they are completed.

  2. I will need photo evidence of each deed or, in the case of the writing, I'll need a copy of the story. You can combine different tasks in the same photo. (Like a picture of a muffin they made next to their leaf collection.)

  3. You are allowed to be creative. If you cannot visit a zoo, you can color pictures of different animals and hold them up like you are visiting them. I want to inspire creative thinking.

  4. For books they've read, I'll need the names of the books.

And.... GO... You have from now until my birthday on August 12, to complete them.

I read a few stories to three and four-year old's at the Gadsden Library today. I had so much fun and the children seemed happy. The librarian, Hanna Gray, gifted me a beautiful game of pin the tail on Jazzy. It was so much fun watching the little ones play. I will use it with every story hour I participate in.

Jazzy had a long break but we are finally in production mode. Counting with Jazzy is almost complete. I am joined by two friends, Rosa Rodriguez and Meerimai Wolfe who are translating the text into Spanish and Kyrgyz.

Here are a few images from the book.

Besides putting this new book together, I've been busy reformatting ABC Jazzy and Little Red Jazzyhood. Check them out on Amazon. (Sorry, ABC will be available in two days.)

Meerimai is also translating Little Red Jazzyhood. That project is nearing completion as well.

Any ideas what other Jazzy books I should produce. Perhaps Jazzy's Jobs? ha ha ha.

"Here we go again. Okay, I'm sitting. Take the picture."
"SQUIRREL! " "Jazzy come back here!"
"It's up in this tree. Look! Up there!"
"Jazzy, I don't see a squirrel." "It's there! Well, maybe it is over there?"
"Wait, is it on the roof of the shed?"
"There it goes! Follow me! Oh, darn, where did it go?"
"Maybe over there?"
"Jazzy, I'd like to get back to the photo session. Can you please get on the porch?" "Fine, I'll get on the porch."
"How's this? Are we done yet?"
"What do you mean you are out of treats? I ain't working for free. Nope, go talk to my agent."
