Oh. Did I mention they’re $5 each! For hardcover books. And, the profit from each sale goes to kid’s health and education. No better way to add to my daughters’ home library!!!

The Thoreau quote made me tear up. I so admire writers and artists like Judy who summon the courage to follow their dreams.

We haven’t yet read the SkippyJon Jones books, but we will for sure now. I’d better start practicing my accent….

(We cried reading Rascal, too.)

We are also big fans of Skippyjon Jones, and after reading this, I’m a fan of Judy as well! Her daughters procured a viking ship?! They put it in their backyard?! I think that earns automatic induction into “Mother-of-the-Year” club, for sure. How cool is that?!

It’s so fun to read! And that studio is AMAZING.

Skippy Jon is our favorite book of all time. My kids (11 & 16) still enjoy reliving our almost nightly adventures with Skippy Jon, complete with singing (clap clap) and my atrocious spanish accent. Its a story that we cherish, and still has the power to bring us all to tear inducing laughter even though they’re big kids now. Thanks Judy! Skippy Jon is a story that my kids will both read to their own kids someday.

Their family spent many of their growing up years in New Mexico. They all have some pretty impressive accents. It is priceless to hear my husband and his sis read the Skippyjon Jones books. Thanks to Judy for the hours of fun!

My inner actor bursts onto the scene in cheesy awesomeness. (And my girls think I’m SOOOOOOOOO funny, which is really priceless to me!) Wonderful interview. Thank you!
