Introducing Our Molly Jo Daisy Book Series
A dream of Mary's has been to publish children's books that inspire kids to think well of themselves and look for the best in life.
Here are her first 3 books - perfect for reading on the porch to your kids or grandchildren.
Molly Jo Daisy is a 9-year-old girl who lives with her Mom, Dad, Grandma, brother John and sister Grace.
Like any other 9-year-old girl who loves her family and her house, Molly Jo gets worried about school assignments and teased by her brother.
In this series, Molly Jo learns a lot about herself, about not giving up even when things seem impossible, about looking for good things even when nothing looks good.
She has a special relationship with her supportive Grandma which shines through in her books.
Each of Mary's books is written in verse and perfect to read on the porch with your children / grands.
Sometimes they will laugh out loud at what Molly Jo says and sometimes they will feel Molly Jo's pain.
Molly Jo's prayer book is from her heart; funny, sincere and so typical of a 9-year-old.
In her upcoming book in the series, Molly Jo and her family will be settling into their Maine home.
Molly Jo wasn't so sure that moving was for her (Book 2) but after coming to terms with it, she's ready for new adventures in the beautiful state of Maine.
Molly Jo Daisy: Not Giving Up
Molly Jo Daisy: We Have to Move
Molly Jo Daisy: Prayers from My Heart
