Sewing a Friendship

Today is the birthday of my friend Patti over at PJ's Prayer Line. Pop over and tell her to have a happy day. And in keeping with that friendship I want to share an amazing accomplishment.

"Sewing a Friendship" by Natalie Tinti showed up in the mail this last week. It is a lovely book for that preteen girl in your life. For many reasons including a good story line, bright illustrations and a quick read. (It seems that the day is so full for the girls I know.) But there is something that makes this book really special.

Natalie Tinti wrote and illustrated this book. Ok, I know many people are talented and can do just that. But are they only 10 years old? Yes! At 10 Natalie has become a published author. WOW!
I really enjoyed how she put this book together. Starting with a cast of characters, listing their likes and talents. I also was able to see her art work right off the bat. I love the use of original art and using scrapbook ideas to set it off. Then I was able to jump into this chapter book to learn her quick valuable lessons in friendship.

Now in this review I was only offered the book. But I would highly recommend it to your preteen girl. At only $12.95 on Amazon it is quite affordable.
Sewing A Friendship by Natalie Tinti was chosen in December of 2009 as a Finalist in Children-Chapter-Book Category by Readers Favorite.

  1. Very cool!!! I'll be sure to take a look at that one!

  2. Hey Kiddo! You are such a precious friend. Thank you for including my birthday wish on your post. Next year, I'll start counting backwards. LOL! I think it is awestome about the young writer! I truly believe that the accomplished writer usually knows they are a writer at a young age, they just don't try to develop or do anything with it a lot of times. Hats off to Ms. Trinti. As I am just getting around to my computer, (lste housekeeping, birthday dinner, church, I guess I'd better get busy thanking all those who stopped by to wish me happy birthday, and get on to my post. Love ya bunches!



Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
