Debbie Dadey's 135th newsletter
During Bailey School Kids week (one day wasn't enough!), I did FacebookLive posts that included writing a Bailey School Kids story online. I used the template above and so can your kids! My Facebook author page videos also include me reading aloud from Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips. Hope your Easter is peaceful!
Above I'm pictured with my amazing friend, Marcia Thornton Jones. I would definitely not have written Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots without her guidance. I'm pleased to announce she is offering a writing class through the Carnegie Center in Lexington, KY and it is all online! Stay safely at home and learn from an amazing expert! Here's the sign-up information.

Everyone is wondering how to help those in need and a fellow author shared this way to make face masks. I am sure it's not the same as professionally-made ones, but I'm assuming it's better than nothing! Stay well and healthy. You are in my prayers, Debbie
Did your world come to a screeching halt due to the pandemic? If you are homeschooling, I hope this list of activities and readings will be helpful. If you need mores structure, the Mermaid Tales have complete units to go along with each book (fun stories, along with a chance to learn about ocean creatures and concepts.)
In honoring my son and daughter-in-laws wishes, I am not sharing pictures of my grandchild, but know that I am over the moon in love!! Is that why there is a baby in Mermaid Tales #20? Couldn't resist making a first Easter basket!
