  1. Please view my website: for summary of my two “new” children’s books, “Dalton’s Dream” (Fiction Young Adult Reader) and “Clark the Shark” (2 Years and Up). Both books are beautifully illustrated and are “inspiring” “educational” and “entertaining” and a fun way to learn about “bullying” and “family”. I would appreciate your comments.

    Thank you, Paula Jones, Children’s Author

  2. There’s a good e-book for middle grade readers on Amazon Kindle – the title is “The Perfect Game” by Christopher J. A story about a 12 year old boy’s experience playing one season organized baseball.
