Mother’s Day will be upon us on Sunday, May 10. It is a day to celebrate someone who has touched your life, helped you grow, and continues to encourage you to follow your dreams. It is a time to celebrate the female figure in your life that has helped mold you into the person you are today. Most of what Mom has done for us is priceless, but somehow on this day, we try to find our best way to thank her for everything in return. Here are some fun ways to celebrate Mom:
Meet Bradley Zink - local children book author.
Born in Petaluma, California during the early 1970's, Bradley grew up with a passion for books. Instilled in him by his parents, and surrounded with a library of books by Dr. Seuss, Mark Twain and Charles Dickens, to name a few, he developed a true passion for reading.
After the birth of his son, Alex, and being a stay-at-home dad, he too instilled the power of reading in his son. Using Dr. Seuss as the building blocks for teaching him, Bradley aspired to create a book for Alex, and all children to enjoy.
Bradley also does FREE book readings and seed planting demos for schools/organizations. With his children's books, schools are able to hold fundraisers, with 60-75% of the net proceeds going back to the schools. Find contact info on his Facebook page.
