How to Tell Your Family You’re Pregnant !!!

How to Tell Your Family You’re Pregnant

My daughter came to my house with a present.  She and her husband said, “Dad, you need to unwrap it. ”   As I did, “It was a children’s book with a note saying ‘Dad. We are pregnant.'”

She told me she couldn’t find any books that said, “Your going to be a Grandparent”.

This got me thinking and I ended up writing seven books in this series.

Your Going To Be a Grandparent”  E Book and Paperback Book

“Your Going to be a  Grandma and it’s a Boy”

Your Going to be a Grandma and it’s a Girl”  E Book

 

Your Going to be a Grandpa and it’s a Boy”  E Book

“Your Going to be a Grandpa and it’s a Girl”

“It Grandparent’s Day at School”–usually celebrated in September.

Dr. Seuss Birthday, March 2, Dr. Seuss Made Me Do It!! Children Poetry Gary Wittmann

My family grew up poor but we are a creative family.  I remember dad being great with his hands in working with wood. My mother did tatting stationery and my brother and sister help draw the leaves on the stationery.

When my brother and I were in middle school, my parents bought us a guitar.  My brother picks it up and played awesome.  I wrote the words to the songs.

My sister is a professional artist who could draw anything.

For myself, I remember in kindergarten drawing a whale and winning a prize.  In the eighth grade I was the art director for our school newspaper.  I continue to write words in poems and draw pictures all my life.

I grew up listening to Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky and recently Kenn Nesbit.  I was able to past these great poets on to my kids and students in school.

In the early 70’s I had the chance to get 9 personally autograph books from Dr. Seuss.  I treasure them today.  I have a collection of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein books which I would read and get the rhythm of the words and the pictures in my head.

I would brainstorm the words until an idea would start forming in my head for a poem.  Then I would draw the pictures over and over getting them just right.

At the age of 20, one of my goals in life was to write a book.  It took me 30 years to realize that dream in the first poetry book called Up The Tree House.

I am still working on the second book will be coming out soon.

I felt this book “Dr. Seuss Made Me Do It”  inspired me to take the collection of both books.

I am humble when people tell me these poems remind them of Shel Silverstein or Dr. Seuss.  I feel the purpose was to make people see the fun in words and pictures. To touch their youth one more time—I hope you do.

I got this book for my nephew and to my surprise he really liked it (11 year old boys can be difficult to buy for). The book is a collection of poems for all ages, there’s something for everyone. I personally liked the “America” poem, very touching. So I suggested my nephew submit it to his history teacher, as she is always interested in new venues to broaden the children’s understanding of American culture. His teacher and class loved it! The author did a beautiful job with capturing the American Pride on that one. I enjoyed the humor, heart and love the author put into this book.

This book is filled with poems which I found ok, but to be fair poetry is not my thing. However, the illustrations in the book which co in-sided with the story line and poems had me laughing out loud.

Why telling the Christmas Story is important to your children?

Always Room for One More in God’s Holy Family

The importance of the Christmas story is to tell children of the birth of Christ.  It’s a way of getting away from the commercial Christmas that we grow up with.

I remember as a child going to church Christmas Eve.  We would all be dress up and go to the pew we always set in at church. If we were in the Christmas play we would be getting dress up as one of the shepherds, wise man, and Joseph and Mary.

Gary Wittmann, storyteller, was asked my Holy Family School, principal, Pam Bell to write a story for the recording to fund the school program.  Gary took the birth of Jesus Christ with symbols that we recognize in the story.  The dove, donkey,  people, shepherds and many others.

This story covers an adventure of John’s, a little Shepard boy who follows the Christmas star to find the baby Jesus and his parents Joseph and Mary. Along his way to the manger John picks up some animal friends.

Nicely done illustrations add in the enjoy of this children’s book.

This book is a beautiful story for children for Christmas time. It’s telling that there is always room for one more in God’s family, as its title states. It’s a really good way to teach small children this valuable lesson.
Gary has also put together a collection of pictures with the song, 12 Days of Christmas.  In the paperback version, the pictures are repeated so that you can color them yourself.  You should copy them and do it again and again.  One of the game in both the eBook and Paperback is to find the mouse which is hiding in the picture.  Check it out here. 

Underwear Nerd and Booger Boys is a Reading Fun Hit!!!!

Children are falling in love with reading the adventures of the Underwear Nerd and Booger Boys as they go through their fourth grade year of adventures. There are seven books in the series that have the students battling each other, Zombies, Ninja Warriors, Vampire and even a Valentine Day’s Dance.

The two main heroes Quigly T. Fartleroy aka “Underwear Nerd”  and  Dunstan Gooberman  aka “Booger Boy” always seem to be able to work something up to solve the problem.

Here a sneak of the first chapter:

Ms. Prescott stood in front of her new fourth grade class. “If there is any gassy nastiness in here this year, the punishments will be severe,” she said and stared right at Quigly T. Fartleroy.

Quigly, aka Underwear Nerd, had the nastiest, stinkiest, grossest farts in the entire school. It had taken him four long years to perfect his stench. And now, in his last year of elementary school, he was ready to rule the school with his farting power. Ms. Prescott didn’t scare him.

Gary Wittmann, a former Special Education Teacher of 33 years and Teacher of the Year for the State Of Indiana in 2007, has written a much to love books for reluctant readers.   It especially design with lots of laugh to booger and farts.  These are what boys talk about from grade four to sixth grade.  Kids will find the adventure a must to read.

Now is your time to order a paperback version of the book.  Remember the special video link in paperback one “Fart Ball”.

 

            

   

Animal Alphabet–why your child should know the ABC’s

Searning the alphabet should begin early in a child’s life. While some don’t learn it until they reach school. It is so important that the child be introduce to mastery before the preschool age and least introduce to the letters before the age of 3.

Start simple. Do not attempt to teach all 26 letters at once. Simply concentrate on a few of the letter at a time and what the child is wanting to see, hear and experience.

Remember have fun in learning is the greatest approach you can use. Use as many senses in learning, singing, drawing, finding, saying, and writing as simply as you can. Find the 3-D or make the letters so the child can experience the feel of them.

The most important teaching tip of all is to make it fun. Make it a game and your child will love learning with you and from you.

Gary Wittmann in his book called Alligator Alphabet Soup, Learn ABC with Allie the Alligator (Ages 3 thru 6). He has a child finding the food according to the ABC’s. Great reviews from everyone who has used the book with their child. The paperback is an unique book for any child growing up.
