Three Ghost Friends by Eric VanRaepenbusch

Good Day, dear Reader Friends,
The Queen here with a hauntingly good tale that's sure to get your little ghouls giggling. Eric VanRaepenbusch has created a fun series that not only engages children, but teaches them basic shape, color and letter skills as well. The graphics are simple, yet cute and appealing for youngsters. These are not books to simply be read, but to be explored. And when you close the cover, the fun isn't over. Hop over to VanRaepenbusch's sites for more activities to enhance the book experience.

Happy Reading,
The Queen

He creates memorable reading experiences with his children by celebrating children's author and illustrator birthdays. His blog, Happy Birthday Author, shares his family's reading experiences to encourage other families to read together.

I met Eric through various Children's Book Writer groups and came across his fabulous Happy Birthday Author Blog. In an interview, I heard him say he used to be a teacher and that he enjoys creating lessons for his own children. He keeps activities, like his books, simple and easy for other parents and teachers to enjoy doing.
