Odessa Ostrich enjoys playing dress-up as a princess and driving her unique bus. On a special ride with a few neighborhood friends, they are invited to share a meal with Odessa’s grandfather, Pappy-O. When the friends take casseroles to the dinner, Odessa is sad because she believes she has nothing to share. Her friends teach Odessa that sometimes, sharing means offering friendship and treating others with kindness and love. Odessa knows she is a very blessed ostrich and always makes sure to thank God for His many blessings of friends, family, and her special bus.
Susan Cook enjoyed reading to her children as well as countless others in public schools during her tenure on a Board of Education in Maryland. Now she has the ultimate joy of reading to her two young grandchildren. “It is exciting and rewarding to have a child hang on every word from a book. Lighting the imagination of a child is opening endless opportunities to make the undiscovered a possibility. Writing this book is a gift of love to children of all ages.”
Several characters in the book were inspired by favorite toys belonging to her grandchildren. Enjoy the adventure.
