Children’s Book Debut

So happy to announce that my first children’s book, Backyard Breakfast, is available for pre-sale wherever you buy books. The book is about a little boy who finds everything he needs for a delicious, healthy breakfast right in his backyard.

Even if you don’t have a big backyard with lots of space for a garden and chickens, you can still enjoy some parts of the story using herbs and small containers. We no longer have a yard with space, so we love to find creative ways to bring fresh foods into the kitchen. The boys plant a “salsa pot” each year. It has cilantro, jalapenos, and cherry tomatoes.

We like to have a little green space for several reasons.

  1. It encourages time outside.
  2. It gives the boys something to take care of. They have to water and weed.
  3. It teaches patience because, boy, does it seem like it takes forever for little sprouts to grow.
  4. They enjoy more time in the kitchen, eating healthy foods when they get to harvest the items with their hands.

You can read more about Backyard Breakfast here, in the and you can order the book here. I would love the support!

  1. Hello Betsy- I love your book! I am a librarian at a local school and would love to speak with you about coming to do an author visit with our students if you are interested. Your book goes right along with our school’s outdoor education program. Please let me know if you would be interested and I will get in touch with you to give you our school info.
