Word Wrangler welcomes Connie Peck to the Festival!

Connie says: I was reading before I was in school. My favorite books were the Little Golden Books I would find in the grocery store. my greatest motivation for good behavior on any shopping trip was the promise of a new book.

I quickly learned to be a storyteller. Listening to my father and his friends sharing hair raising stories of flying huge airplanes in dangerous situations taught me the element of suspense. Listening to my cousins, aunts, and uncles taught me the element of humor and surprise. Listening to my college professors taught me the element of story design.

My favorite books growing up were always horse books. I consumed every book I could find with a horse on the cover. When I had read everything I could find in the local library, I graduated to stories about dogs, then eventually to Westerns.

The Proud Little Pine is an anamorphic, easy chapter book which tells the life story of a ponderosa pine tree in a managed tree forest.
