Buddy’s Bedtime Battery
Christina, who always has stories “dancing around in her head,” wrote and illustrated her first book in 3rd grade. Over 30 years later, she’s collaborated with illustrator Tim Bowers on her first published picture book, a bedtime story for busy and imaginative 3-7 year-olds.
Introducing Buddy. (Please call him “Ro-Buddy” when he’s wearing his new robot jammies). Like all little people with big ideas, Ro-Buddy lives in a bright and busy world of imaginative play. Follow along as he and his robo-family help power all of his robot body parts down for bed, one BEEP! at a time.
Sorry Grown-Ups, You Can’t Go To School!
Why do back-to-school books focus on characters who are feeling Sad, Shy or Scared? Christina asked herself this very question when her two kids were getting ready for Preschool and Kindergarten, and she was trying NOT to focus on feeling Sad, Shy or Scared!
This fun, high energy picture book turns the typical back-to-school story format upside down, with Buddy and his sister Lady politely rejecting their grown-ups’ (and dog Bow Wow’s) attempts to join morning meeting, read stories on the cozy carpet and do science experiments.
Releasing July 16th from Random House Kids, in partnership once again with Illustrator Tim Bowers.
