The 1st time a young child looks at your Children’s Picture Book is indeed a highlight of an author’s career.
A young child on a plane with us was squirming around and trying to settle into the flight. I sometimes will offer a child some of the pictures of my pets to look at in similar situations. This time I had a perfect option, my new picture book, ”Agador & Mila’s Jungle Adventure.’
My husband had downloaded it for free from Amazon Kindle Unlimited a few days ago when it was 1st released and we passed the phone to the young child’s parent. The father read the book to her as I watched from the seat just behind and to the left of them. On the phone, she slid each page of the eBook open like a true pro. I made note of how attentive and engaged in the story and illustrations she was. She pointed to the images, giggled a few times and made some sounds of joy that little girls often do.
My husband and I had not anticipated or planned for this moment but yet it was upon us. We were overwhelmed as she enjoyed each page and illustration. As a first time author and illustrator, It was indeed an incredible moment.
