The theme for the evening–GO BEYOND–was celebrated in a tribute to numerous hometown heroes from across the U.S. whose charitable efforts were truly amazing.
My son Dan and his wife Megan wait in line with us to enter the stadium. Megan is a true-blue (and RED) Cardinals fan. Some of their wedding day photos were shot at the old Busch Stadium.
All-Star Cardinals first baseman, Albert Pujols, walks with President Obama after the ceremonial first pitch.
Glittery streamers filled the sky as the game got under way. I felt like a little kid at the bestest birthday party ever!

A troupe of hamsters celebrate a year of silly holidays in their unique hamster style. The book highlights nouns and adjectives on each page, as well as exploring opposites. Activity pages include scrambled words, match-up and crossword puzzles, and much more. Grammar becomes fun and games with hamster helpers.
Visit Guardian Angel Publishing for information on purchasing this title in either eBook or print format.
HAMSTER HOLIDAYS–and all of the other books in the PET GRAMMAR PARADE SERIES–are available in print format from these online bookstores:
Visit illustrator KIT GRADY‘s web site for more information on the book’s wonderful artist.
Special Education Teacher, Cathy Eshleman of Kearney, NB had this to say about the book:
Through the use of hamster antics, Cynthia Reeg, in her whimsical style, writes about nouns and adjectives in a way that will capture the interest of any student. Hamster Holidays: Noun and Adjective Adventures is a “must have” for any teacher who is introducing or reinforcing nouns or adjectives in the classroom.
To hear some of the HAMSTER HOLIDAYS story, listen to author Cynthia Reeg read from the book and share snippets from her other PET GRAMMAR PARADE titles on WEDNESDAY, JULY 15, at 10:00 am CST on the ROBIN FALLS KIDS STORY TIME on BLOG TALK RADIO.
Six children’s authors will be sharing their books and answering questions this Wednesday. If you’d like to call in, here is the number: 646-649-1005.

Don’t miss it!
This week Suzanne Lieurance (from THE NATIONAL WRITING CENTER FOR CHILDREN) is hosting Harold D. Underdown on Book Bites for Kids each afternoon (Tuesday to Friday) at 2:00 pm CST. Harold will be offering all types of advice and information for children’s writers. Harold is probably best know for his phenomenal website, THE PURPLE CRAYON, a wealth of information for children’s writers. And Harold has also written THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO PUBLISHING CHILDREN’S BOOKS.
You can call in LIVE and ask Harold a question: 1-646-716-9239. Or if you can’t listen live, use the Book Bites link above where all the interviews are archived.
And when visiting THE PURPLE CRAYON, be sure to check out fellow Guardian Angel Publishing author, Margot Finke. She has featured tips there called, “Margot’s Musings.”
I had a great time today with Suzanne Lieurance at BOOK BITES FOR KIDS on BlogTalkRadio. Truly, the 30 minutes flew by, but I was discussing a subject I knew well and had great interest in–ME!
So if you missed the opportunity to hear it broadcast live, never fear. Click on the link below, and you can hear the archived interview.
I would rate this as a 3Brownie interview–at least that’s how many brownies I ate before the interview. No power drinks or coffee for me. This children’s author runs on Triple-Chunk Fudge Brownies. 🙂
Hope you enjoy the interview….
