Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m Rebecca Scarberry, @Scarberryfields on Twitter and author of Messages from Henry, Rag Doll, Jumper series of children’s picture books, and Where Love Takes You.
Here’s the cover for volume 4 in my Jumper series. The book will be released around September 16, 2014 or sooner. The series is written to be read to age four through seven over several reading sessions. Eight year olds are able to read all the books in the series on their own.
Hi! Humans call me the red ball, but Jumper is my real name. With the help of Mr. Wind, there were several times when I jumped from my wire basket, in front of Little Tykes Toys & Bikes.
On occasion, the store clerk or the store manager tracked me down and took me back to the store. They didn’t care about a ball’s dreams.
It was a happy day for me when two-year-old Tony’s mother bought me. He’s now four years old and he loves me so much. He takes me just about everywhere with him.
I’m here to tell you all about my exciting new adventures with Tony and his best friend, Emily. Bouncy Brianna lives with Emily. She’s a red ball too and we’ve become good friends. I call her Bouncy for short.
“Tony, Emily’s on the phone!” Tony’s mamma shouted from the kitchen.
Tony took me into the kitchen with him, put me on the floor, and took the phone from his mother.
“Emily, I was just thinking about you. What’s going on?”
With the speaker phone on I could hear Emily’s reply.
“My dad’s taking me to Wannabe Lake tomorrow. It’s going to be a lot of fun. He’ll take us sailing on our boat. Some neighborhood friends of mine will be there too. They’re brothers and their parents have a speedboat. Their father will take us water skiing. Well, sort of water skiing. We’ll be in a big inner tube and Mr. Saints will pull us behind the boat. It’s called tubing. Do you wanna come?”
“Can I take my red beach ball?”
“I knew you’d ask me that. Yes, I’ll be taking mine with me.”
Wow! I really looked forward to seeing Bouncy once again.
Tony’s father walked into the kitchen.
“Daddy, Mamma’s going shopping tomorrow and Emily has invited me to go to the lake Saturday. Her dad’s taking us sailing. Will you take me?”
“Sure. I love sailing.”
“Emily, my dad says he’ll take me.”
“Cool,” Emily replied. “I can’t wait for you to meet my friends, Kyle, Kian, and Lizzy.” You’ll like them.”
“I know Lizzy. She goes to my day care.”
“Are you sure it’s the same person? Does the Lizzy you know have long light brown hair and violet eyes?”
“Yes! Big violet eyes and long eyelashes.”
“That’s her. She lives down the street from me. When I see her today, I’ll tell her you’ll be there. Meet us at the boat dock at eleven o’clock.”The link to my Amazon author page: http://smarturl.it/0z9brq
