The holiday is Christmas, the day children dream about all year as they imagine gifts with their names on them. In her charmingly illustrated new book, The Smallest Toy Store, Regina Lewis gently reminds her readers that there are children who face the holiday, and every day, without a place to call home, much less a tree or presents. Join the magical Ms. MerryWood and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

Regina N. Lewis (Ms. Regina), author of The Smallest Toy Store, A Christmas Story, has been writing children's stories, fiction, and health-related articles for several years. In collaboration with her sister, P.M. Moore, The Smallest Schoolhouse is the second in a series of children's books to be published by CyPress Publications. Ms. Regina's children's stories focus on social awareness, education, environmental and/or health issues. She believes that most children can learn the lessons of life by relating to fantasy stories and characters. Much of Ms. Regina's inspiration to write about social concerns, health and educational issues comes from her nursing/medical experiences. She graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Health Education. She later attained training and certification as a Nurse Practitioner at Emory University. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Ms. Regina loves the South with its beautiful magnolia and oak trees, Spanish moss, brilliant flowers, wildlife, butterflies, birds, lakes, and oceans. She is retired as a Nurse Practitioner in Women's Health Care and resides in Havana, Florida, with her family.
Phyllis M. Moore was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, and remained in the Boston and Dorchester areas until the age of eighteen. She joined the US Navy after one year of college and served for twenty years. She received a Masters of Science from Eastern Illinois University in 1996 and is presently working as a computer lab instructor in Illinois. Phyllis has a daughter who often serves as an inspiration for her drawings. She loves the sea and all animals whether they walk, swim, or fly, and have one leg, many, or none at all. She also loves reading, snowy days, and old movies. Phyllis and her sister, Regina, first collaborated on writing projects in their teenage years.
Enjoyable Reading for all ages!
