I love the concept of paying it forward, and I wanted to capture that theme in a way that children can enjoy and understand. And because I grew up on a farm in a little, Midwestern town, I wanted to have barnyard and woodland animals tell the story. Rabbit starts the journey that meanders through Farmer Brandt's farm and ultimately ends with Rabbit's "gift" coming back to him. I hope you enjoy, and I also hope that these characters inspire children to pay it forward in their own way. Happy Reading! ♥ Laura

I had so much fun at Franklin County R-2 Reading Night this week! It was so good to come home to my alma mater and see so many familiar faces! Thank you, Huskies, for letting me be a part of your special night.

I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
