Jamie Oliver Has a Wish

Jamie Oliver , famous chef, wished, through TED, to Educate every child about food. He stars in Food Revolution and is making efforts to change the American school lunch menu’s to be healthy and remain delicious. He has already met this goal in his country of England and wants to spread his efforts to the rest of the world through USA.

He’s asked for others to tell him about their efforts in creating a Food Revolution and making the world a healthier place so I knew I had to tell him about the Adventures Of Sammy. I have done so in through the following video.

A Review and Book Giveaway

A newsletter in Comox, British Columbia name Our Big Earth has posted a review on Sending You Sammy. Although it’s surprisingly not a directly glowing review it does convince parents not to let their own fears and dislikes get in the way of a book a child likes.

Check it out today and, if you’re in the Comox area, visit Nearly New Books for your copy.

Thanks for reading,

Let’s Celebrate!

Sending You Sammy is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday – mine and yours! Mine’s coming up on Tuesday, August 25th so make sure you have your copy to read with me.

Wouldn’t it be a celebration if all of you read the book the same time I did?  Let’s read it just after lunch, say 1 O’Clock? Are you in?


Help Me Make Sending You Sammy #1

Currently my children’s book helping fight childhood obesity is #77 in Children’s Books – Science, Natures & How It Works – Health – Fiction on Amazon.ca. This is such a specific category that is perfect for the first of the Adventures Of Sammy series that I know it won’t take much to put and keep it #1. It may seem like a small accomplishment but it’ll definitely be a start in the right direction.

Once we get it to appear as #1 in this category we’ll take over another until it’s the #1 in the Children’s Books category!!’

INCREDIBLE:  September 16, 2009.  SOOOOO Close. Sending You Sammy will be #1 this week, I just know it. 

#4,282 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)

#5 in  Books > Children’s Books > Science, Nature & How It Works > Health > Fiction

Update: June 24, 2009 it sits at #75 in Children’s Books – Science, Natures & How It Works – Health – Fiction . Up two notches!  Let’s keep up the momentum.

Sammy Creates Buzz at the Zoo

What a beautiful morning to spend at the zoo. The sun was shining, the breeze took the flies away and Sending You Sammy gleams in the bright light. With everyone geared up for a run in the zoo for the great cause of building a new Tiger Exhibit for the Magnetic Hill Zoo, Sammy was on everyone’s lips.

Literacy, eating healthy and exercise all go together in Sammy’s world as they should in yours. Enjoy your day the healthy way!
