This book series is a step toward fostering a lifelong love of stories, reading and language."
"Sheldon was created from the daily talks I had with my eldest daughter, who was wonderfully imaginative and observant. I wanted to capture her interesting stories in writing so, one day, we could both look back and reminisce about her childhood." - Shawn Carter
