Interview,Book Review & Giveaway: The Miracle of Rain by Sherry Rossman
We welcome Sherry Rossman Author of The Miracle of Rain to Mymcbooks Blog
Rabbits, javelina, snakes, skunks and the occasional raccoon were all a large part of my childhood where I grew up in the small town of Rimrock, Arizona. I used to roam the countryside with these critters, my two older brothers and a neighbor friend, which is where my imagination had plenty of space and inspiration to bloom. I currently live in Prescott Valley, Arizona with my husband, two children and three cats
What is the last book you read?
“90 minutes in Heaven” by Don Piper. Excellent!
What were your earliest memories of writing?
I remember writing a poem about ice cream in Elementary School. This was the first thing I wrote that won an award and an opportunity to read it to a group of locals at a luncheon. This experience was what sparked my passion for language arts and also gave some insight into who I was.
You wrote that Little Women influenced you as a child, why Little Women?
Little Women is truly a work of art. It addresses adversity, human strengths vs. challenges and how all of these things can shape a person into being who they were designed to be. The insights I have gained from reading this book have resonated in my mind and heart ever since, and have proven to me the value of a well written story.
Are you working on a new book?
Yes! I am continuing the adventures of Nora and Molly in my next book! I can’t wait to complete their next mission!
Who’s your favorite Author?
I don’t think I have any one favorite. I love the works of Louisa May Alcott, Charles Dickens, Dr. Seuss, Laura Numeroff, and Lucy Maud Montgomery…….
Were you afraid of thunderstorms growing up?
Yes, I was afraid of the noisy thunder and claps of lightning! I also lived on a dirt road that would literally wash away in a big storm. That is why I chose this subject to write about because I relate to it. But I still liked to go outside after a storm and squish my bare feet into the mud!
You have a love for painting what was the last thing you painted?
The last thing I painted was a seascape for my son’s room. It is a large boat splashing through the water, where it is being guided by some icthus.
What advice would you give parents on selecting the right books for their children to read?
I think a combination of books is always a great idea. Some to challenge, some to teach, and some just for fun to encourage a love for reading.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Keep on encouraging your children to read! A person who only listens to the world around them will only know what people want them to hear, but a person who reads, will learn how to find answers (truths) for themselves!
This well written story about The Miracle of Rain by Sherry Rossman is a story about thunder and lightning storm. Nora and her cat Molly were afraid of thunder until they met a raccoon named Smickett who showed them that there is something wonderful about storms. Smickett told Nora the importants of rain and lightning to life and this provision it provided by God.
This is a story of adventure and enlightenment. If you or your child is afraid of the storm then you need to have a copy of this book. It explains about the importance of storms, all while helping to calm fears.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
Books Given in 2012: 380
Books Given in 2013: 330
Books Given in 2014: 257
Books Given in 2015: – 127
