1888PressRelease – A colorful weekend adventure offers readers a delightful escape.
BOSTON – Maddie cannot imagine a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with her grandpa. But what she didn’t expect is the adventure they would discover in their own backyard artfully brought to life in Karen Jonice Bricker’s delightful new book Maddie’s Saturday to Remember.
As Maddie and her grandpa stroll through their hometown, they meet a colorful cast of locals: a street musician, a fruit seller, and a pizza chef among them. But when Maddie meets the mysterious Lydia, who allows her a sneak peek into the creative and fun behind-the-scenes world of window dressing, she is truly inspired!
“Adventure awaits us at every turn if you know to look for it,” said Bricker. “My goal with this book is to capture a reader’s imagination and encourage them to keep their hearts and minds open to what lies in store when they set out every day.”
A former early childhood educator, Bricker teamed with illustrator Samela St. Pierre on the book, which is appropriate for elementary aged children. Young readers will be captivated by the playful illustrations and fast-moving plot and will want to read the book again and again.
Maddie’s Saturday to Remember can be purchased online through SDP Publishing, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailers.
