Second Star to the Right 🌟

Independent Bookstores are the best way to celebrate a book launch!

Yesterday I was the featured author at a wonderful new location of a beloved Denver bookstore, Second Star to the Right.

If that name sounds familiar but you have never been to Denver, Colorado, it’s probably because of the song from Peter Pan. These opening words from the book sum up how I feel about the past week launching Aliana Reaches for the Moon.

“The second star to the right shines in the night for you. To tell you that the dreams you plan Really can come true”

I’m over the moon to have such wonderful friends help me celebrate the launch of my new book!

It’s also helpful if you ask your library to buy the book so that many readers can have access to it.

And reviews online (Amazon, Goodreads) make an important difference for new books.

Why I’m feeling over the moon 🌙 💜 🌝

This week, we received accolades from two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) professionals for the book ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON. 

“This short children’s book imparts many pearls of wisdom about the qualities of a scientist, while telling an engaging story about a girl’s caring relationship with her younger brother. Using her ingenuity, imagination, and ordinary household materials, Aliana creates a special experience for Gustavo’s 5th birthday. Aliana Reaches for the Moon encourages all children – and especially girls – to read, explore, experiment, and to take notice of the natural world. There’s even an important message for parents – doing science can be messy!”    ~ Grace Wolf-Chase, PhD; Astronomer, Adler Planetarium

If you’re not familiar with Adler Planetarium, in Chicago, IL you should make plans to visit and you can check it out here: Adlerplanetarium.org

Curiosity and imagination, paired with research and experimental play, help Aliana bring her unique idea to life. Aliana Reaches for the Moon will inspire readers to use science, imagination, and experimental play to create their own innovations.”   ~Linda Schwab, Flight Director,  Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana
