It is a short rhyming picture book. I’m so amazed that it brings us through a hockey game from the first puck drop to the final buzzer with such limited words. The rhyming is smooth and perfect, like a sing-along song for bedtime. So it serves really perfect for bedtime story. It will bring calm and good dream to children, especially little sport lovers.

The illustrations are vibrant, engaging, full of actions and capturing the sport from various angles. All the details are very charming too. Parents can show their children all the stuff about the sport, older ones will also enjoy looking for and pointing out the items. It’s such a visual pleasure to read the book.

Good Night, Good Night

Ding Dong! Merry Christmas! The kindle edition of my new book “Good Night Good Night” inspired by my 8 weeks little boy was just released! (Yes I had a baby about 2 months ago! That’s why I stayed almost absent recently, taking care of him is a big challenge! I’m still learning:) )

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RDMKPAI/

It’s a bedtime rhyming story, and it was inspired by the routine how my little boy went to sleep every night. This book is the second picture book that I wrote and illustrated, it has been created with love and joy. Hope you guys enjoy it too! And if you like the story, please please take a few minutes to write me a review, it’ll help me out and encourage me to write and illustrate more children’s books!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hope you all have a merry holiday!
