Summer 2015

Award Winning Stargazer's Alphabet and Companion CD for only $20 with FREE Shipping

"Summer's here, another year, reach up and touch the sky!"

Those are lyrics from a song I wrote about 20 summers ago. The song includes many of the "wonders" of summer and childhood, and has become a chapter in our family history. Twenty years ago when our children ranged in age from 5 years old to 10 years old, it truly was a time of wonder and discovery. We spent countless hours singing, reading, bicycling, stargazing and learning about the world, as a family and with our "Island Friends." Many of my songs, and the inspiration for the book, "Stargazer's Alphabet," came from summers on PEI. Those friendships have endured and will always be a part of our family.

The night sky is a wonder every night of the year but summer nights really are great times to look at the stars, the moon, the constellations, the planets, and of course, the Perseid Meteor Showers, which occur every August. The book is for beginning stargazers of ALL ages. You'll be able to find many constellations, identify Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, and even see where Apollo 11 landed on the moon in 1969. It also tells you the best times to look for shooting stars and where to look.

We are making the book and the "All Around Us"  CD available as a set this summer. What's So Great About the Great White Shark?, There's a Bear Over There, and The Paleontologist Song are among kids favorites on "All Around Us." The book and CD regularly sell for over $30 but  for just $20 with FREE SHIPPING in North America. This is a great price for a book and songs that may become a part of your family story in years to come.
