AUTHOR - GOAAALLLIE, Singing Molly, Old Adages for the Young at Heart and Fairy Ride.

Vicki Bruce inspires children to enjoy reading by creating entertaining picture books.  Early literacy is the key to happy children, parents, and teachers.  

Seven years ago Vicki asked Faye Wright if she would illustrate an 'Old Adage' book. 'Old Adages for the Young at Heart' is a picture book for adults.  It is designed for adults that may have dementia or vision loss.  

"I am not sure if there are other picture books for adults, but over the years, as a librarian, I was asked for books for readers with Alzheimer's or dementia, I would head to the children's section and try to find large print books adults might like.  This was not an easy task" - Vicki
