Congratulations on the release of PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH TO GO. Please tell us more about it. What was the inspiration for this book?
Scotty is in the habit of walking around with his food, leaving crumbs all over, rather than sitting at the table to eat. Mom is in the habit of letting him. One day Mom decides to use her imagination to fix this growing problem. When Scotty asks to walk to the clinic where his father works a few blocks away with his peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Mom says sure—but has he considered all the people who might ask for a bite of his delicious lunch? When Scotty's sandwich grows impossibly bigger and bigger in his mind to account for all the people who'll ask for a bite, he must make a decision about whether it's wiser to keep his sandwich for himself by sitting at the table to eat it.
Linda: When I was pregnant, I vowed I would be the kind of mother who would insist that my children eat only at the table. Somehow the opposite happened! They ate all over the house! I wrote this story to give a light-hearted reason why it's important to eat meals at the table.
What is your favorite moment from the book?
Linda: When the dog wants to share some of Scotty’s ever-growing sandwich.
Is this your first published book?
Linda: My first book, The Missing Stories: Caleb’s Missing Whisper & Other Stories, was published by Hard Shell Word Factory (currently unavailable). Chip’s Sharing Day was my second children’s book.
We’d love to hear more about you.
Linda: I like to write stories for children that teach them manners and right from wrong (like sharing with their friends or how to behave in the library) in an amusing way.
How can our readers learn more about you and any upcoming events?
