June 12 | 2-3pm
Michelle Griffin-Carter, a wife, mother, and educator; has completed her new book, “Whatcha Doin’, Ivy Rayne?”: an illustrated creation that follows Ivy as she walks on numerous adventures and learns about youth and life along the way.
Michelle writes, “This book was inspired by my youngest daughter, Ivy Rayne. While walking into her room, I saw Ivy busy pulling things apart and building them back together again. I said, ‘Whatcha doin’, Ivy Rayne?’ Ivy looked up at me with her bright eyes and said, ‘Oh, nothing, just being Ivy.’ I laughed and immediately went to my laptop and began typing.
Ivy is always doing something that prompts your curiosity. This story is centered around Ivy and the adventures she shares with her big sister Madi and her two best friends Max and Brody. When faced with a problem or challenge, Ivy is fast at work finding the solution. When asked the question ‘Whatcha doin’, Ivy Rayne?’ the response is always the same, ‘Oh, nothing, just being Ivy.’ Join Ivy, her sister Madi and her two best friends as they work together in ‘Whatcha doin’, Ivy Rayne?’ The Window”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Michelle Griffin-Carter’s new book is an amusing piece of children’s literature that accounts the adventures of a young and intelligent girl whose days were far from boring.
Readers can purchase “Whatcha Doin’, Ivy Rayne?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Nobles.
