For the Love of Peeps
By: Sunnie Day
This delightful children’s book for ages 4-10 is based on the author’s own true-life story. Sunnie was a little girl who lived in a tiny town called Roosterville. She had many dreams. One of her favorite dreams was to have her very own chicks. Most of the people in Roosterville called baby chicks “peeps,” and that’s what Sunnie called them, too. After saving her money and buying her own peeps, Sunnie set out to become a real chicken farmer. She cared for them, protected them, and made them comfortable until they were able to go outside the coop and forage for bugs and worms in the grass. She even helped them to become friends with her dog, Chrissy. Soon, the peeps would begin laying eggs. Then they would be grown-up hens. Sunnie was very happy for the love of peeps.
Sunnie Day was raised in the military and has spent most of her adult life associated with military life, traveling to many places stateside and overseas. She enrolled in nursing school rather late in life and retired in 2011 after an eighteen-year nursing career. Since then, Sunnie has been able to resurrect her great love of writing.
Sunnie comments, “The time since my retirement has been a whirlwind as I began putting pen to paper. The words have flowed like a fast moving river, bringing with them many new adventures I never dreamed possible. My greatest hope is that my writing inspires and encourages others.”
Sunnie raised four beautiful children who have now graced her with four wonderful grandchildren. She lives with her husband in central Texas.
