Millie Richmond - Children's Author
Growing up in New England, I enjoyed the abundance of history and the variety of seasons. The winters finally got to me though and I headed south, settling in central Florida. For many years I loved working with and for kids as classroom teacher and Reading Resource Specialist in elementary schools.
Now retired, I spend a lot of time swimming, writing, volunteering, writing, walking, writing, "junkin" and, oh yes, writing.
Hildy, an upbeat, early chapter book, is a 2012 Winner in the Florida Writers Association Royal Palm Literary Awards.
It is an AR (Accelerated Reader) book with a Readability Level of 3.8. Two picture books followed:
Daddy's Gone and May I Have A Dog?
A yet-to-be-published picture book, Did You Do Your Homework Last NIght? earned a 2013 Royal Palm Literary Award.
All three books are available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
Thank you for visiting!
What a wonderful visit I had at Seminole Elementary School in Okeechobee, Florida! The students had read my book Hildy and my visit was their culminating activity.
I was impressed with these super listeners and the thoughtful questions they asked after the presentation.
