A Red-Letter Day! "Sammy" gets shipped to the Library of Congress! It's the largest library in the world, with more than 164 million items on approximately 838 miles of bookshelves. The Library, which adds about 12,000 items to its collections daily, is home to the U.S. Copyright Office; most of the collections are received through the Copyright registration process. That's how "Sammy" started her journey many months ago.

A dark and stormy night (really!)...New Year's Eve...Davi's 11th birthday...the last night of lighting Chanukah candles...and...The Reveal! For months the book-in-progress had been a closely-held secret...mostly to savor the drama of showing my family the finished book. Behold!


“The best way to tell a big story is a small story well told. This is a must-read for children suffering from a broken leg or arm.”

- Denny Mosesman, MSSW, Certified Parent Educator

“I don’t think it would be fun to break my leg. It was a fun book”

- Lilly Finley, 9

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about this amazing book! It makes your heart break and then rejoice for sweet little Sammy. Kids learn what they need to know while being enchanted by Sammy herself. And the illustrations, wow! – so bright and cheery, they delight both kids and parents!”

- Mary Nell Bryan, children’s health advocate

“One of my daughters broke her arm. Keeping up with the others was hard on her, so Sammy’s Broken Leg was perfect for her. In fact, all my children are enchanted by the happy illustrations and story of Sammy.”

- Shannon Wille, mother of three

“This is a fabulous book to share with any kid in a cast. It tells Sammy’s story so well and so entertainingly that it captures kids’ interest and keeps them coming back.”
