Have I got an AWESOME Creative Kid to tell you about today!
Meet Abigail Brand!
I learned about Abigail and the great books she writes after reading about her in a local newspaper. I learned that she has written several books in her series called “Hello Little” and that she hand-wrote, illustrated and self-published them! PLUS Abigail donates part of the sales of her books to a Local Hospital’s NICU center! (Told you she is awesome 🙂 )
I asked Abigail if she would answer some interview questions.
Erik – How old are you and in what grade?
Abigail – I’m 8 years old and I’m in 3rd grade.
Abigail – I wrote my first published book when I was 5. I had just turned 6 when I published it. I always have so many ideas for books. I had actually written my first book when I was 4, but that one is not published. For the first book of the Hello Little Series, I brainstormed a bunch of ideas that I had for another book and chose the one that I felt the most inspired by.
Erik – That seems like a great way to get ideas, Abigail! Can you tell us about how you decided to donate your profits to NICU hospitals?
Abigail – When my baby sister was born, she needed to be seen by the NICU. She turned out to be fine, but I was really concerned for all the little babies who need to stay in the NICU for a long time. I decided that I wanted to help and so I donate half of the sale of my books to Lehigh Valley Hospital.
Erik – That’s awesome! I read on your website that you have raised nearly $900.00 for the Lehigh Valley NICU center! What else do you like to do besides write books and what do you want to be when you grow up?
Abigail – I like to play with my sisters, ride my skateboard, swim, read, and play games. When I grow up I want to be an elementary school teacher.
Erik – You are a very active kid! Besides your own, what is your favorite book?
Abigail – My favorite author/poet is Shel Silverstein and I really like the Junie B. Jones series, by Barbara Park, but my favorite book of all time is Dr. Suess’s “Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?”
Erik – I love Shel Silverstein too! Thank you for doing this interview, Abigail!
