Wednesday Raves: Kailee Finds Magic in Words, a delightful new picture book by Allyn Stotz

With all the new books coming out for kids, it's hard to choose which one to buy so let me make it easier for you. Louisiana author, Allyn Stotz, new picture book, Kailee Finds Magic IN Words, is the one your little ones will love.

Kailee is a little girl who would rather play than read. She thinks reading is "boring", which is something every grand parent and parent faces with their kids at some point. But Kailee's mother insists, and that's when the magic begins. Drawn to the colorful illustrations, Kailee runs her fingers over them and is transported to a magical world where she meets new friends and discovers new wonders.

This is a great book to introduce young kids to the magic they can only find in words. I fell in love with Allyn's first book which featured Kailee titled The Pea in the Peanut Butter. In that picture book Kailee refuses to eat green foods. It was delightful, and it received a thumbs up from my grand daughter who laughed each time she read it. I have no doubt that when my copy of Kailee Finds Magic IN Words arrives in a few days from Amazon that it will receive the gold star rating of my grand kids official thumbs up.

Meet Allyn!!!

Allyn came from a family of writers. Her father wrote and owned the town newspaper in Edgerton, Ohio and her mother wrote a weekly column. One of her sisters is a freelance editor/writer in the commercial industry. Watching Allyn’s journey to publication convinced her sister and her 85 year old mother to team up and write a novel of their own. They were published in 2012.

Kailee Finds Magic IN Words is Allyn's second children's picture book and is the sequel to her first picture book The Pea in the Peanut Butter. Both were published by FutureWord Publishing. Allyn has also been published in various children's magazines. Look for her next book, Hippo Bottomless.

A graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Allyn was recently added to the permanent staff of FutureWord Publishing. She lives in Baton Rouge, LA with her husband, two crazy dogs, and one fat cat. You can find her blog at, or since I follow her blog just click on the link in the list of blogs I follow.
