Is it true there is a time for everything? Silly Sally and her mother seem to think so. There is a time to relax and a time to have fun; and there is a time to scrub. And there is always time to smile, of course.Take a look at life through the eyes of silly Sally and her mother and see what you can see. Sally s mother does not get upset over the small things and she enjoys Sally and how Sally looks at life.Written and illustrated by Penelope Dyan, an award winning author, an attorney and a former teacher who simply loves kids, this book will make you stop and look at life s big picture, if only in a small way; and this book is meant for moms and dads as much as it is meant for children. Dyan thinks one should not sweat the small stuff of life, and you should, instead, revel in them.Dyan has had two of her books, much like this one, placed in the Saison Poetry Library at Southbank Centre, London, UK, in the Royal Exhibit hall, chosen by the UK Arts council for placement in their collection of children s poetry. Another one of her poetry books, A Book For Girls About Being A Girl, is also ranked third on the Pukeke reading list in Australia in books of poetry for girls ages 5-9. Dyan s book, Surfer Girl is ranked fifth on the Pukeke reading list for best books for early teens, and Surfer Girl is listed on Girl s Voices In Literature Database, Miami university Florida. Surfer Girl (additionally) was winner of best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival and has won several other awards, as have several of Dyan s other books.
