 Sister Duo Publishes Children’s Books 
Encouraging her daughter along with other children to enjoy reading is what inspired Jennifer Bourgeois and her sister Ash Manning to start creating children’s books
  “Ash and I have always had a love of reading,” commented Jennifer. “We started creating children's books after my daughter, Lyla,  was born to inspire her interest in books and we hope to reach other young readers as well.”
  The sister duo has currently published two books. “Baby Duck and the Windy Day” was published  in 2021 and “Night at the Fablehollow Library” was published in 2022.
     “Ash and I write the books together and Ash        illustrates all the books herself,” commented        Jennifer. “We are currently working on several titles, including a Young Adult fiction series, and we have hopes to have two holiday-themed Baby Duck books out this year.”
    If interested in purchasing a  copy of one or both of the books you can find them in Kahoka at Flowers For You  and Backroads Boutique and Consignment or online at, along with some Rose Haven Books merchandise.
