Do something fun for you today! There are several positive messages for children. My favorite is never give up. Adults need that encouragement, too! Children will love the illustrations and the song. I love your book, Joan, and will continue to share it with little ones—I plan to read it with my nieces when they visit next week. Merry Christmas, my friend! Dear Becky, Thank you for writing. Thanks for reading it to children in classroom visits and for sharing it with your nieces.
Dear Janis, Thank you for writing. It features a little duck who plays a flute, which is a pretty cute idea for a protagonist. The little duck meets many different kinds of people along his journey to musical greatness: That's one of the reasons I said this story would make a good addition to the classic repertoire of nursery rhymes. It's got that good old-fashioned scare you get from the three little pigs, or the original Red Riding Hood, and it's full of sweet little ditties and sounds that will make little kids laugh.
It understands the consequence-free mentality of a child, while sharing the heartfelt themes parents might even need to hear again themselves especially if you're a writer or an artist: Oh, and it's super-cute.

Feb 08, Kristi Bernard rated it liked it. Have you ever heard a duck play a flute? Flip Flap Foodle is a happy duck who does indeed play a tune on a flute. Our family played the alphabet game, finding license tags from each state, and counting red convertibles when traveling. We made up plays and acted them out.

What kind of school system did you have? I, for instance, spent most of my grade-school years in 3-room school house. Was your school bigger? Did you have good teachers? I went to St. It was a very good school. They gave us exams at the end of each school year. At the end of the third grade, I got the mumps and contracted a sleeping sickness.
I missed the end of year exams. I told my teacher: So Mother explained what had happened. Probably the fever I had from the mumps instigated it. After two weeks, I was fine. I believe you were a teacher for a number of years. What inspired you to do that? How did the teaching spur your desire to write stories? I know you wrote one picture book about a duck who liked to play music. Did you read it to your students? Tell us the name of your book. And what inspired you to write it? When I was a teenager, I loved babysitting with young children of school age. I planned parties and activities.
I babysat a lot. I also enjoyed teaching my cousins how to do things. In school the teachers would ask me to read the geography book because I made it come alive for them. I took care of my brother and I also took care of my younger sister. We wrote plays and acted them out for our families and friends. When I lived in Tucker, Georgia, my environment was great for hearing stories and telling stories.
These were thick books with only an illustration at the beginning and a few sparse black and white illustrations in the middle.
There were no picture books back then. People who babysat with me told me stories. I made up stories. They loved it and begged me to tell them other stories. So I had to do spur-of-the-moment stories for them. I made up characters and put them in weird situations. They laughed and laughed. Afterwards I had them write stories and draw illustrations for them.
I tried off and on for many moons to get Flip Flap Floodle published. I got many rejections. After I retired, I promised myself I would submit it to publishers for 5 years. Luckily for me, color print-on-demand came out just in the knick of time for me.

I have made many presentations to elementary school students explaining the process of how I changed the illustrations and how I used the internet to help me improve my drawings of a frog and Mr. The proportions and slant of the rockers were all wrong.
I took a rocking chair that I had and placed it in front of me. Horror of all horrors. Talking about pep talks.
