The inspiration for the children’s book is a little boy called Will, Gloria’s grandson. In one book, Will and The Red Ball, the family travels to New York City where Will’s imagination of a red ball and his curiosity gets the best of him. The book ends with an educational and happy ending. He learns the importance of parental instructions while traveling. In another book, Will takes an adventure with a Snowman and has fun playing around the cold and snow. He sees ice sculptures and snow sculptures as part of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Both children’s books are illustrated in full watercolor and are fun playful rhyming for kids and the whole family.

Those who know me, know I am a 'closet' lover of snow. One of my favorite things in the whole world is watching the snow fall on a cold day. It mesmerizes me. That’s why this book was so dear to me. I was imagining how I feel when the snow is delayed or later than usual in appearing. Little Will is really a lot like me. And the St. Paul Winter Carnival with the ice sculptures and snow statues is amazing. Who wouldn’t want to be here? Come along on an amazing adventure with our hero, William, and enjoy the wonders of winter.

When Will moved to South Carolina, with his parents, I was sad to think he wouldn’t have the opportunity to enjoy winter and snow and snowmen. And then this winter, it actually snowed a couple of times for him. It must have had something to do with the creation of the book. He was delighted to be able to play in the snow, if only briefly. As you read the book, I hope you, too, will enjoy the wonders of winter, with Will.

As you read the story to your children, you get caught up in the excitement as William and his parents travel to the biggest and most exciting city ever, New York City. The sights and sounds astound and amaze little William. Clutching his trusty red ball, William is captivated by all there is to see and do in New York City. Huge buildings, gigantic statues and sounds unlike anything he has ever heard before surround the awestruck little boy as he journeys with his family through the many places there are to see.

Curiosity takes over as William wonders what could happen if he only bounces his ball just once or twice. His bouncing red ball takes them on a detour that separates him from his parents despite their warnings to him to stay close by their side. Wandering on a path led by his favorite toy as it bounces through the streets and even subways, William is soon hopelessly lost and alone. Can he and his red ball find their way back to his mom and dad in this giant city? In case you're wondering, yes, it does have a happy ending.
