Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear | Countdown to Publication Day

The big day is almost here: August 7th, 2014, publication day for Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear! This week it will be officially out into the world, and it's time to celebrate!

My very talented friend Stacey Hsu from Original Sock Dogs did her magic again and created a wonderful Beatrice doll, capturing her personality and features perfectly.  Beatrice will be accompanying me to all events and book festivals, of course.

Stacey's daughter Sophie read the story and sent me this really cool drawing of Beatrice and Bear (please note her addition of Worm and Book --  ADORABLE!)

Also all ready for download is a terrific Teacher's Guide created by Marcie Colleen -- really, really good stuff, lots of ways to use the book in all sorts of fun activities in the classroom (or at home!)

And finally, what better way to celebrate a book launch than with a giveaway? Stay tuned for more information on a separate blog post on Thursday, August 7th, pub date!
