A VOTE IS A POWERFUL THING Selected for the Houston Bar Association’s Constitution Day Reading Event

Although a late post, I had to share this honor: The Houston Bar Association selected A VOTE IS A POWERFUL THING for their 2022 Constitution Day Reading Event 2022 observations. Members of the Houston Bar Association visited 100 area schools to read the book and then donated it to the school library. Loved seeing their social media posts of groups of kids gathered to hear the book all across Harris County, Texas. See more photos at:

New A DOG’S DAY Author Program Debuts at Troy Elementary

Awesome kids & questions & stories of much-loved dogs!
