Andy’s best ant friend is a school classmate named Dickter.  Dickter is a bit shy and lives in the poorer section of town.  Dicker has a disability.  You see, when he talks, he stutters.  When he gets nervous, his stuttering gets even worse.  Too often...

What a day!  I had a spelling test as soon as school started this morning. Did not do as well as I thought I would.  Bummer.   After recess I had a math quiz.   We are working on fractions now and this really messes my brain...

What started as fun bedtime stories in 1975 for my daughter when she was almost three years old has resulted in a series of wonderful children’s books.

One night as I was telling my daughter a story just before she was to go to sleep, I started with a familiar beginning:  “Once upon a time, there was an ant…”  My daughter interrupted me with a question:  “Daddy, what was his name?”  I thought to myself for a moment, “What rhymes with ant?” The next word I said was, “Andy.”  That was all she needed.
