The Buzz

“Through the storytelling of Beverly Stowe McClure and the book illustrations of Bridget McKenna, the reader is drawn to feel the pain of poverty and choices that must be made due to economic circumstance. We are drawn into Jackie’s world by her giving spirit and root for her every word of the way. And when all is said and done … We, too, believe in the miracle of a Tumbleweed Christmas. Timely for the season and its reason, but also gives us reason to keep the Spirit of Christmas alive year ’round.” ~ 5 Star Review, Ruth C., Amazon

“I can’t think of a sweeter tale of the season than Tumbleweed Christmas.” ~ 5 Star Review, Cheryl M., Amazon

“This is a delightful 24 page book which shows the reader about selflessness. Many parent’s give up much to make things work when they don’t have a lot of money, and being creative is certainly a key in such situations. Jackie gave up what was dear to her the most to be able to give gifts to her family so they had something to open on Christmas day. In many ways, gift giving has gone out of control. The most expensive items are not necessarily the best. Sometimes it’s the handmade items or drawings that come from the heart that are truly memorable. A gift from the heart is what truly matters most, and it doesn’t have to be much. Children and parent’s alike will enjoy this story because it touches upon one of the best gifts in the world that we can give–LOVE!” ~ 5 Star Review, Children’s Book Reviewer, Amazon

Beverly Stowe McClure is a former teacher turned writer. When she was a kid, writing was the last thing on her mind. She loved music and played clarinet in the junior high and high school bands. She also was a majorette. She still plays the piano to relax. Her cats don’t appreciate good music, however, and run and hide when she tickles the ivories. She lives in the country with Patches and Tiger (the cats), along with a variety of wild critters that stop by for a handout. Next to her sons, grandchildren, and great-grands, writing is her passion and joy. She also enjoys researching her family roots and snapping pictures of clouds, flowers, deer and birds, especially the roadrunner that visits on occasion and the hummingbirds that she feeds.
