|Spruce Pine, North Carolina|
What a blessing to meet a children’s author! We were privileged to meet Gloria Houston and visit Spruce Pine, North Carolina (home of the Perfect Christmas Tree). As we read books we try to talk about authors and illustrators, so it was very inspiring to meet an author whose books we’ve read.
Meeting Gloria Houston was delightful! She is very personable and takes time to converse as she signs books. We have some signed books that were gifts to our family, but this is the first noted children’s book author that we’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
We had fun reading her newest book, Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile. It was fun to listen to her talk about how she gathered ideas for writing it. Look for a book review of it here later this week.
Also, look for 31 days of children’s ABC books during the month of October!
