plaid_family_adventuresPlaidFamilyBooks.com is happy to introduce a new series of children’s books with farm and animal themes called the Plaid Family Adventure Series.  Written by Michelle Tomars and illustrated by her father, John Tomars, these books will delight the young reader with stories of life on Wisconsin farm.

Each story is told from a different Plaid Family member’s point of view and features and adventure with an animal (based on real animals from our family ranch, and real experiences with that animal as the basis for each adventure.)  Each conflict resolves by the end in some type of growth for the main character.

Though the stories contain some fantastical elements that make them appealing to children, at the heart of each story is the honest portrayal of family, animals, small town values, and all the challenges that go along with living through a bitter, snowy winter in the northwoods.

Thank you for visiting PlaidFamilyBooks.com, where you can read  biographies of the author and illustrator, purchase prints of the illustrations, and get to know the real live animals who inspired these wonderful tales.
