Read full description of the books Winter Waits:"Winter sprints
across the way.
come on, let's play." Father Time smiles
and kisses his son.
"Not now, I must work,
my littlest one."
So Winter waits
for an hour or two,
painting the grass
with a frosty hue..."
While Winter waits for his father, he finds ways to amuse himself. Winter "whistens and glistens" the world in frost, "whizzles and whittles" ice sculptures, and "snizzes and snips" snowflakes. At last, Father Time turns his full attention to his son, and they "frisk and frolic away."
Lynn Plourde, author of the best-selling picture book "Wild Child," reunites with acclaimed illustrator Greg Couch to continue the story of Nature's family with this exquisite book that captures the joy of a father-son relationship.
Read information about the authorI write kids' books--talk about a FUN job! I worked for 21 years as a speech-language therapist in Maine schools. When I got married, I got 3 & 4-year-old stepsons as part of my ready-made family. I read the boys picture books at bedtime. They fell asleep after 2 or 3 books, but I kept reading stacks and stacks of picture books and started to dream . . . maybe I could write picture books. I was already writing educational books (listening & speaking ideas for the classroom), but PICTURE BOOKS--that was different!
Different, and sloooooow! I had 13 years of rejections before getting my first book published, Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud, and I still get more rejections than acceptances--even after having more than 25 books published. So I'm still an author-in-training--learning to be a better author all the time.
I LOVE writing, the whole creative process. I also LOVE sharing my books with kids at schools: doing interactive readings, turning one of my books into a play, and teaching students how to plan and write different kinds of stories (i.e. problem stories, character stories, graphic novel scenes, fables) modeled after my books.
I love to try new kinds of writing such as poetic stories, a biography, a graphic novel, and more. Writing new kinds of stories is a challenge, but it makes writing fun and keeps me interested in the process.
