When Eva Hollers is written by Brinkley Burks Pound and illustrated by Paula Ingram Kiszla and B. Matthew Kiszla. Eva sometimes gets upset and hollers for different reasons. When Eva hollers, her family finds different things to do that will settle Eva down. Eva might want to have a treat, play a game or even be cuddled. She may be interested in hearing wildlife chatter or seeing animals at the zoo. There’s no telling what Eva will want or need but her family will be there to keep her as happy as she can be. Sometimes figuring out why a child might cry may not be easy but with a little effort and teamwork, Eva can easily be entertained and cared for.
I love the picture book When Eva Hollers by Brinkley Burks Pound. The story revolves around a family trying to figure out why Eva is crying and what they can do to make her happy. I love how Pound encourages family playtime while finding creative ways to explore why a child might be crying. The illustrations are absolutely adorable as they tell the story through pictures. When Eva Hollers is a book that any child will enjoy having read to them while they follow along with the pictures until they are able to read it by themselves. The collaboration between Burks and the Kiszlas has turned out an amazing picture book that will keep the attention of adults and children alike. I recommend When Eva Hollers to anyone with children who are ready to learn to read or are already of reading age.

These past several weeks have been a whirlwind of fun. So many of you purchased books, wrote reviews on Amazon and sent us pictures of loved ones reading WHEN EVA HOLLERS! I've been working on the web page to add content to Beyond the Book links. It has been such fun to add extensions to the story and use my love for teaching and sharing to make the book more interactive. Click the link above and check out the results.
We've started working on our media kit and I am taking lots of "classes" on doing interviews, participating in book festivals, using Amazon, and generally promoting the book. I truly do not like to have my picture taken - I will holler! But, we need to have our photos for promotional materials. I'll post updates here once the pictures are done later this month. We will have a launch party both in Mobile and Columbus later in the year. Make sure to like us on Facebook to keep up with the details!
Here's to an wonderful start of the new year!
