“My Child, I’ll Still Be Loving You,” by Vickie L. Weaver, came out in fall 2015; people everywhere call it “Adorable!”
“The smile is the dance of the face. Dance is the smile of the body.” My father certainly embodied that motto during his dance career.
5 STARS on Amazon!
My book, “Dancing in the Stars: Carroll Webster—International Dance Luminary of Vaudeville & Hollywood,” has received 5-star reviews on Amazon. It’s the biographical story of my handsome father, Carroll Webster, as a professional ballroom dancer in the 1930s and 1940s. You can travel with him from the dance marathons–where he started with comedian Red Skelton and singer Tony Martin–to Vaudeville and the Golden Age of Hollywood. The book is a dance career, a love story, comedy and drama, history and mystery while revealing dancers’ struggles and successes both along the way and at the hills of Hollywood. It also shows how dancing changes the lives of many people and shapes their history as they contribute to dance and history. Available at www.createspace.com/5311269.
In addition, my rhyming picture book is out, for kids 0 to 101 but best targeted to ages 3-7. “My Child, I’ll Still Be Loving You” shows in love and fun that the parent-child bond can overcome anything. In the process it has teachable moments such as the real vs. the imaginary, animals, colors, counting, time, rhyme and alliteration, and more. People wherever I go, including to classrooms in nearby schools, call the book “adorable” and educational. Available at www.createspace.com/5714110.
Please consider buying either book as the perfect gift for a loved one or another on your shopping list. If you want to buy in bulk, contact me and I’ll arrange an appreciable discount for you. Thank you so much!

Hello, Lovers of Children’s Books!
My first children’s picture book was published recently. As a lifelong poet, I’m very pleased with the rhyme that I achieved throughout the book, “My Child, I’ll Still Be Loving You.” No matter where I reveal it, the people consistently react by saying it’s “adorable” and “cute.” What immediately follows is a description of the book, which contains rhyme and near rhyme:
Turtles telling the time of day?
Crocodiles eating birthday cake?
Porcupines playing peek-a-boo?
Oh, no! What’s a child to do?
There’s so much more with animals galore.
The solution comes from a comforting source.
My artist, Kattarina Storost (aka Katrina Kissell, www.artistkissell.com) and I worked well together to produce artwork that best represents my text, and I am very pleased with the illustrations.
The book is available via my book page on the publisher’s Web site: www.createspace.com/5714110. There, I earn the most on my investment in my book. It’s also available on Amazon. Although it’s for kids from 1 to 101, its top target is the 4 to 7 age group. It makes a great gift for holidays, esp. Christmas, which is right around the corner. It can also be for birthdays and whatever other occasion you choose. Please check it out. If you buy it, please write in to tell me your opinions and how your children reacted to it.
