Bounding for Books Blog Tour - Shari Lyle-Soffe

Today I'm honored to host Shari Lyle-Soffe. She and I go way back and have seen each other on the road to publication many times. We also share Kevin Scott Collier as an illustrator for several of our books.

About the book: Noah's problem is solved when he takes a job at the pet store, or are the problems just beginning? When Noah is left in charge, all of the animals escape and Noah must find a way to get them back in their cages before the owner returns to the store. Suggested age for readers: 2-6.

I asked Shari a few questions:

#1. Children's writers seem to have a knack for thinking like a child. What were you like as a five-year-old?

Painfully shy.

#2. What inspired you to write Nothing Stops Noah?

The visual aspect was appealing to me. I wanted the utter chaos in that pet shop. The theme came from my mother who nagged me with "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!"

#3. Share the best feedback from a child you've received for your writing.

Oh my, I can't remember. I saved some wonderful notes from kids but they are in storage temporarily.

I'm sure Shari has received tons of great feedback for her wonderful books. Here's a really fun trailer for Nothing Stops Noah.

Shari, I love the pet shop theme and the wat Noah got all the animals back in their cages. Very clever.

Nothing Stops Noah is an adorable little book and a perfect example of what a picture book should be. Every single word Shari chose is just perfect!
