Local Author Releases New Children's Book

Local author and illustrator, Jennifer Gentry, is proud to announce the release of her first children's book, Shoes On
Shoes On is a comical children's book, about the loveable character, Little Bean, and his mother as they get ready to leave the house.  Inspired by her life as a mother, it is a relatable but creative telling of such a familiar scenario. This story is for every parent who has had to repeatedly ask children to put their shoes on, and for every kid who has answered that question with 'yes' but immediately done something else.
“I wanted to create something that would make families laugh together. I'll never forget watching my husband and kids read the first draft. I wasn't even sure if it would become anything more than that pile of scrap paper with doodles. But every laugh and giggle was priceless. Now, here we are, months later, and I have a real book to share with everyone."
On Thursday, July 20th at 3pm the Hempstead County Library will host a book signing event to celebrate the release of Shoes On. Books will be available for purchase at this time and the author will be there to answer questions, meet with readers, and of course, personalize books. 
The book is currently available as a paperback on JenniferGentryBooks.com and as a Kindle eBook on Amazon. After only 24 hours on Amazon, Shoes On became a #1 best selling New Release.
