Amaleigha Makes a New Friend


Jan Pratt

Sometimes when you dream, it takes a while for it to become a reality. I have wanted to write books since I was a little girl and fell in love with my hometown library. I read books at school, at home, in bed, and even in the bathtub. I just couldn’t get enough of faraway places, brave heroes and heroines, and the experience of getting lost in a new and amazing adventure in each book.
Through the years, I became the owner of a preschool, a public librarian, a school librarian, and a children’s yoga teacher but no matter what I did, I shared stories with children. Finally, at age 62, I published my first book but I know it won’t be my last. Check out Amaleigha and her big idea!
