Apples for Fred is definitely a favorite of our Pre-K class. The children love the rhymes and engaging story. We are eager for the next book in the series! --Kathleen Feigen, Pre-K Teacher, Interfaith Child Development Center, The Woodlands, TX
While at the South Lake Carroll High School craft show last November, I met a very friendly and interesting woman named Diane Box. Diane has written and illustrated a wonderful children's book, Apples For Fred. It is a charming story of a little frog that has a problem, but also has some very devoted friends to help him resolve his problem.
I am a firm believer in the power of reading to children and in teaching them the importance of reading for their entire life. It takes so little effort to read and to continue learning while we are on this journey. I think it is very important to instill the desire to read as early as possible, in every child. I am grateful that there are writers and illustrators in this world continuing to create meaningful and interesting books for children.
A portion of the proceeds from Diane's books goes to Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. She is also on the Committee for Take Steps for Crohns and Colitis, and is in charge of the children's activities at events. Currently she and I are kicking around some ideas for combining her wonderful illustrations and my paper crafting as an activity for children at one the committee's events in the near future.
