Had to put my two finished manuscripts aside. Now working on the third about the Marsh World – Della Gets Dirty. Della is a 9 year old who hates dirt. But when two marsh animals make her acquaintance, she is drawn into the marsh world. She is faced with the horrible decision between her Dad filling in Frog Pond on her new friends and keeping his job. Her relationship with mud, dirt and her Dad all take gritty turns.
I could not have found a more wonderful article about mud and kids. Happened to see it while getting that annual mammogram! Mud, the New Medicine, by Ashley Talmadge. Thank you Ashley. Just love it.
