The Adventures of the CedarWood Kids
About the Book
Four-year-old Gracie dreams of becoming a famous singer. She loves to put on costumes and dance and twirl around, and she particularly loves singing and performing for her family.
Gracie is visiting her grandparents’ farm, CedarWood, with her parents and her brother, Caden. One day, while playing around the farm, Gracie makes her way to the top of a flat rock, well above the surrounding area. She has found the perfect stage! Now she can perform for all her family members by putting on the greatest show ever. Is this the day that Gracie becomes a star?
The CedarWood Kids series, based on real-life stories, seek to teach basic principles of healthy living and meaningful relationships, while also entertaining readers. They are grounded in family values, the joy of multigenerational relationships, the love of nature, the wonders of country living, safety-first lessons, good decision making, and the fun and laughter of a family enjoying being together.
About the Author
Mazie H. Leftwich, PsyD, has always loved books, even as a young child who struggled to read because of an undiagnosed learning disability. But with the encouragement of her teachers, a very special librarian and her mother, she became an active reader who for many years now has enjoyed ending each evening with a book in her hands. As a mother reading with her own children and now a grandmother reading with her grandchildren, she finds great joy; and she is continually amazed at how once the spark of learning to read starts in a young child, how that excitement has such power in the direction of each child’s life! Through the CedarWood Kids Adventure Book series, Mazie has captured the essence of real-life stories of her grandchildren’s learning and growing experiences as they enjoy fun activities at CedarWood Farm.
She and her husband Brent share four adult children and 6 grandchildren, and live at CedarWood along with their two Maltese pups – Scout and Scooter – and an array of wild animals that like to roam and live in the woods.
