article imageOp-Ed: 'Simon the Snail' — One of 2017's best children's books

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 11, 2017 in Lifestyle
While 2017 is far from over, a children's book that was published this year that really stands out is "Simon the Snail" by Shari Bitterman.
Shari Bitterman opened up about Simon the Snail, her writing style and inspiration behind the book, in her interview with Digital Journal. The book's vivid drawings were done in watercolor by illustrator Shanté Clair.
This book was a labor of love for Ms. Bitterman, especially since she wrote from experience, and about a topic that is dear to her heart. It is a great story about family unity, perseverance and it underscores other important values, all told from the perspective of Simon, the main character who is a snail. Her book's rhyming pattern adds to its appeal, and it deserves a round of applause for a job well done.
Simon the Snail is available on Archway Publishing.
On Wednesday, April 12, there will be a reading and signing of Simon the Snail by Ms. Bitterman at the Book Revue in Huntington, New York.
Digital Journal also sat down and chatted with tax manager Steve Bitterman, who is the "Karaoke King of Queens."
