Reading Levels!

Good morning, my lovies!

I had some weird dreams last night, and I’m excited to say that I now have a great idea for book three of The Demon Bunny Chronicles!

But that’s not the point of this blog post.

I am writing these books for my daughter, Alex. When she entered third grade, she was only reading at a first grade level. Every parent wants to do whatever it takes to help their children succeed.

What did I do?

I decided to write a book for my sweet daughter. Occasionally, I would have a finished chapter waiting for her to read when she came home from school. It was totally awesome to watch her imagination blossom and her reading skills improve. Greatly, actually.

I am extremely excited to announce to you that Alex was tested before the summer break, and guess what! Her reading level shot up from the first grade reading level to the … DRUM ROLL … fifth grade reading level!

Now, I’m sure my book isn’t the whole reason for her extensive improvement, but I am confident that it helped her broaden her mind and open up those dams that held her back. She is writing and creating artwork every day. I am so thankful that I am able to help her reach her goals!

How do I plan to improve upon that idea?

I have decided to incorporate her fourth grade study words into the third book of this series.

I’m pleased with the idea, and I hope your children appreciate my books as much as Alex!

Sincerest regards,

Vanessa Shockley ❤

Christmas Pictures Dead Ahead!

Well good evening my lovelies, and MERRY CHRISTMAS! I’m so busy working on the second book of this series that I completely forget to post on this darling blog of mine. So! What I am going to do is just schedule ahead some cute pictures that my family and loved ones took this evening … just to keep the heart of the blog pumping.

I promise to update everyone soon on the progress of BOOK TWO when I have time because what can I say? It’s Christmas time.

Below is a picture of my beautiful daughter, Alex. Tonight we celebrated Christmas with hundreds of our family and friends! Just a reminder, Leigh, the younger demon bunny sibling, is based off of the quirky blonde below. Pardon the blurriness.


Merry Christmas!
