Tuesday Promotion in Motion with Brenda Wood and The Big Red Chair

About the Book:
$4.99 on Kindle
There are two kinds of people in the world: gluttons and non-gluttons. Since I am a slightly recovered glutton, I feel qualified to point out the vast differences between the two.
Non-gluttons don’t hide chocolate in their toilet tanks, between the mattress and the box spring, in laundry hampers, or in the glove box of the car. They throw out stale potato chips, eat only one peanut at a time, and never celebrate holidays by eating ice cream under the dash of their car.
They may straighten a curtain, but never a block of cheddar or slice of pie. Not for them cold gravy sandwiches, aged green potato salads, or entire chocolate cakes at one sitting. They don’t make chocolate chip cookies just so they can eat the dough.
What others are saying about the book:
The Big Red Chair deals specifically with grieving the loss of someone you love and it is done with the love of a grandmother’s heart. The book includes questions that guide grieving children. A CD is also included. If you know a little one struggling with grief, this would be a good book to read to them. Laura J. Davis- http://www.laurajdavis.com
