Erica Graham – Puppy’s Bubble

 

Over the last few years, my children have received lots of gifts. Obnoxiously loud gifts, gifts with lights that have on multiple occasions made my heart leap with fear that an officer was behind me as my children played in the backseat, heavy toe-breaking toys, and toys that are exciting for a few days, then sit in a corner taking up space. One of the best gifts my children have received is books. What an incredible gift to exercise a child’s mind and provide a parent with some wonderful opportunities to bond and teach.

In addition to being a mother of two very active little ones, I am a speech-language pathologist and the author of the Talking Tales series. The Talking Tales books are not only fun stories, but they serve a unique purpose. This exciting series is designed to help with speech development.

Each book in the Talking Tales series is focused on a different core sound in its naturally occurring word positions, thus increasing a child’s awareness and helping him or her learn how to properly produce the targeted sound.

Parents and caregivers are the most important people in a child’s life. For this reason, speech tips are included in the front of each book so that this series can be used in a home setting.

 

 

The most popular book in the series to date is the award-winning book, Puppy’s Bubble which follows Puppy as he searches to find answers for a strange object that he discovers. This engaging story is a fun way to read to little ones while promoting babbling, early words and language skills. It provides over 90 examples of some of the earliest developing sounds in their most common word positions including “p”, “b”, “m”, “n”, “d” and “h”. This book is also recommended as an early reader for older children due to its simple repetitive sounds and words.

Hi, my name’s Angel Chadwick. I’m a mom, avid reader, avid reviewer and avid blogger, multi-genre author. I’m a business minded person with business ideas. That successful, ambitious mentality runs in the family. I’ve traveled all over the world. So far Toronto, Ontario, Canada is my favorite place to visit. Niagara Falls I hope to see it again soon. It was such an amazing revelation to see it in real life up close and I do mean up close. I hope to travel again.

It is an international crime mystery/thriller/suspense/interracial/multicultural romance/action/ coming of age/supernatural, some sci-fi with sports elements/ literary fiction with settings mostly the UK, Japan, Chicago and Mississippi.

Weeping Well: “Fear is like a looking glass….”

 

 

Excerpt

“It’s my fault you’re still in this bed, Telly. I thought maybe there was a chance the surgery would save you.” Eva wiped her tears, lying curled up in bed next to him. “I never gave you an answer the day you proposed to me. Maybe that was my only chance.” She took his hand in hers and placed a soft lingering kiss between the knuckles of his forefinger and thumb. She swallowed hard between sobs, sitting up, still holding Telly’s hand and placing her hand on her abdomen. She let go of Telly’s hand and feebly walked over to the bathroom, her knees trying to buckle from her inconsolable sobbing.

She stood in the bathroom doorway, taking gasping breaths, struggling to calm herself. Suddenly her heart stopped right in the middle of her sobbing and she collapsed. At that moment, Telly woke up. He tried to form his mouth to call out her name. But the breathing tube obstructed him. Telly weakly reached for the call button on the bed next to him, clumsily fingering the buttons, until he pressed the nurse’s call button.
