Many of you know Clara Bowman-Jahn

I purchased the e-book version of Clara’s book Annie’s Special Day. It’s a fun read. 

The story: 

In Annie’s Special Day, a little girl celebrates her birthday with an adventure every hour. It is a basic concept book about time and clocks.

We learn what Annie does throughout her birthday — all 24 hours of it. There are a variety of scenes, clocks and activities taking place in the story to add to her fun and the reading experience.

The book is written for a 5 to 7 year old, but Enzo liked the clocks  (one of his first words) and the noises in the beginning.

The illustrations by Claudia Wolf show a fun and enthusiastic Annie. She’s a very cute character. Plus, I like all the different types of clocks throughout the story, especially the watches. I rarely see children wear those, because they have cellphones! Ah, technology.

The book is published through eTreasures Publishing. Clara would love it if you checked it out.

She’s written a blog post about her publishing story, but I’m saving that for October as part of her blog tour. Plus, she’s like so many of us she’s on a little break and I didn’t want to interrupt her time away. I did want to introduce you to the book.

I met Clara through the Platform Building Campaigner’s Challenge last year. Here’s some information from her bio:

Clara Bowman-Jahn worked as a registered nurse for 32 years finally trading that job for her true love, writing. Clara’s short  stories have been published in the anthology of the “Campaigner’s Challenges 2011” Book. When Clara is not writing, she does volunteer  work for a local elementary school and her church. She also likes taking long walks with her husband, blogging, and reading books. She is a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Pennwriters, Bethesda Writer’s Center and Round Hill Writer’s Group. She lives in rural Loudoun County, Virginia with her brilliant husband, a senior dog and two cats. And she is the proud mother of two wonderful grown sons and a grandmother to a delightful grandson.

If you download the ebook, it’s a large file. The publisher has instructions on what to do in case you have any problems. I wasn’t able to upload the file to my Kindle due to it’s size, but it looks great and reads well from my computer.

I hope my friends in the states have a wonderful Labor Day! Enjoy.
