Libby comes from a family who loves to write. Her mother, Irene Paparo~Stein, who wrote the book called “Cities Under Siege.” It was a true story based on true events. The story is about the environment, people, and politics ~ a very outstanding, interesting and educational book.
You could say it’s in her genetics to write. Her stories are fun, whimsical, educational and easy to read.
Why did you start writing children’s storybooks?
“When I grew up, my life was shaped by the magical stories I read and that were read to me and the exciting worlds they allowed me to escape to,” explains Libby. “Looking at the young people in my life today, I started to notice that when I was sitting down with Mom and Dad before bedtime to absorb a good book was something of a distant memory.
Knowing how life~changing and influential this can be, I challenged myself to write a series of books that were fun, contained serious life lessons and could hopefully take children away from technology to see the world through literature’s boundless eyes.”~
What are the books about?
“Each book gives children something special to look forward to. For example, Barbara and Bridget will ignite a fire for REAL adventure by pushing boundaries in ‘The Dark and Gloomy Night.’ In ‘Willy the Kid, The Pollution Fighter,’ I literally lay out a plan for children to use their minds and boost their energy levels by participating in cleaning up their environment by following simple steps.
‘MURRAY AND THE FURRY JURY AT CHRISTMASTIME,’ also plays on the theme of respecting all living creatures by keeping away from extinction and the need to preserve nature and all living creatures that walk on the beauty of our land.
