Happy Harvest Excerpt:

Sunshine flowed through any opening it could find, excited to wake everyone up for the day. It found a nice spot right between the drapes in Allie’s bedroom. The sunlight slowly spilled into the room until Allie’s eye fluttered open. Allie smiled and stretched.


“Thank you for waking me up, sun! It’s going to be a great day!”


Allie took a deep dragon breath, in and out, of the refreshing morning air. She hopped right out of bed and got dressed in her favorite shirt and pants.


Allie heard a little bit of clatter from the kitchen and rubbed her tummy. It was time to make breakfast! Allie hurried to the kitchen to help her dad and mom. She knew just what to do. Allie got dishes, silverware, and napkins out, placing one of each on the table in front of each chair. “The table is set!” Allie announced.


“Thank you, Allie,” her dad said with a smile. “Would you pour us some water?”
