Hey Just’n Tyme family! As many of you know, I have just completed my first Children’s Book, Justin’s Pumpkin Patch Adventure. The book is intended to be fun and inspire creativity and adventure through learning. The main character, Justin (my son), is an energetic and curious little boy who is anxious to get to the Pumpkin Patch for his special pumpkin-picking experience. While a fiction work, parts of the book were inspired by Justin’s actual field trip to Strawberry Hill USA — a local farm in Spartanburg, SC.
As I am putting the finishing touches on what will be our first published children’s book under “Just’n Tyme”, I start to think about my favorite book from childhood; and this phrase comes to mind, “One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and pop! Out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.”
