Last week “Loosie B. Goosie”, my children’s picture book was launched! It was so much fun to see the children’s faces as they listened to the story. Abby Stoner, a Rhode Island School of Design student whom I’ve known since she was born, created the most delightful illustrations. The book is based on a true story of a goose that was stranded on Shelburne Farms. It’s a story of kindness and empathy written for children ages 3-7. Following the reading, I, Grand-Mother Goose handed out white feathers and the children ran off to frost goose shaped cookies.
