My Book is Now Available in Print!

The print edition of my book is now available for purchase! "What Should I Put on My Feet to Go Run?" is the first and apparently only children's picture book about barefoot running. It stars a little bear who is eager to go run around outside but who unfortunately has some very human preconceptions about what he needs to wear on his feet. He peppers his bemused mother with a series of increasingly silly questions as she patiently tries to straighten him out.
The book is written in verse and vibrantly illustrated by the very young and very talented Laura Hollingsworth. I recommend it for children ages 2 to 105, or for anyone who remembers the simple childhood joys of bare feet, soft grass, and warm summer sunshine.

It's still available here in Kindle edition, but I have to say that the print version is the way to go. It's really beautiful, and I'm not just saying that because I'm incredibly partial to it and love it like my own child. It's really a great book. Go buy it now.
Here are a couple of snippets:

"But what about sneakers, should I wear some of those
While I'm running around so I don't stub my toes?"

"No, silly bear--listen to me, please:
To go run around you don't need galoshes or skis.

"You just need some feet and some fur in the breeze
And some grass and some sunlight, and maybe some trees.

"For a bear's foot should be barefoot; it's really the best way
For a bear to run around on a honey-sunny day."
