You Go, Girl! (New Children's Book)

Loretta Magden's The Treetop Bird Family is available now and had a fine write-up in The Cleveland Jewish News. You don't have to be a parent, or a birdwatcher, or even a lover of children's books to enjoy this charming, beautifully conceived, well-crafted book. I loved it from the moment I handled it...the layout and design are as good as the story, and you may feel that you have crawled into the bird's nest yourself. A treat at the end of the book is the recipes.

It has been my pleasure and privilege to have Loretta as a writing student in my classes for years. She is lyrical, funny, wildly creative, sweet, and gets to the heart of the matter--in writing and in life.

Here's the Jewish News write-up:
And here's a link to Amazon, if you'd rather purchase that way.

Loretta has a talent that is expressed in on-the-spot improvisation as well as more polished writing.

She is an inspiration to us all.
