  9. I would probably write about a Jersey heifer calf since we have plenty of them around here.

  10. Gaye Durst says:

    I once in the back of my mind had an ongoing story about the two dogs I was taking care of. They were based on thier daily happenings but pulled more elaborate. I do wish I had wrote those down. Now I’d write about a chicken! She’d have many adventures with her buddies.

  11. Cindy Parker says:


  12. Mari Lewis says:

    The REAL relationship between cats and dogs – keeping my animals in mind.

  13. Vicki Allen says:

    once I wrote a story about a goose when I was in school so I would say a goose

  14. If I wrote a kids book using a certain animal, it would be a Hedgehog.

  15. Ann Austin says:

    I would write a book about mice.
    When my son was little I always told him stories of mice, mine lived deep in the ground but interacted with the ones in the city, and battled trolls. 😊 The mice always won!

  16. Cindy Meade says:

    So ? I am a storyteller can I use your book and promote it whenever I tell your stories. I do not do this for profit just as a fun way to reach kids. Hopefully one day at kids camps. I do Bible stories too never for profit.
    If your answer is yes where can I find your books.
    If I wrote a book I would pick a turtle. I am always sticking my neck out!!!!

  17. Vicki says:

    I have a story written and am working on about our horribly abused horse Barney. I am hoping to publish it this year sometime. I also have one in mind about chickens wanting a new coop.

  18. gloria fuller says:

    The critters of wild weed farm: a mad hatted groundhog; a blustry very tall rabbit; and a very timid skunk. That is all i’m sharing.

  19. Faye brown says:

    I would write a book about elephants, mama and family never leave the young
    unattended or behind . They also will attack anything that goes after their babies and of coarse elephants never forgets anything,
    so Younghans beware!

  20. melissa says:

    An Alpine Goat named Grace who wants to be a prima ballerina

  21. Leisa Joan says:

    My daughter wrote a book about a girl that turns into a cat at night, when she was in 2nd grade. Very inventive.

  22. Avis says:

    About our cats! They know us better than we know ourselves and can set the clock by them!

  23. Honey says:

    This is an easy question to answer, my very first dog (which I didn’t get until I was an adult), was a dalmatian. She was a great dog, but unfortunately ended up having diabetes in her later years. So my book would be titled, “Daisy, the Diabetic Dalmatian”. I’d use her story to educate children about diabetes, insulin shots, and how you can still be a happy energetic dog even with this disease.

  24. susan b says:

    It would be a rabbit we had called “Big White”. She was a tame rabbit that my husband found running up the road, that someone had dumped out. I took her to the vet and found out she had not had a good life. She had overgrown teeth and was blind. The vet told me that she could have a good life – so we got her teeth fixed and let her live her last year in luxury. She was the sweetest (very very big) bunny!

  25. Joyce Huber says:

    My daughter wrote a story about a bear in grade school and her sister did the illustration for her. She won and it was made into a hardback book. Very impressed. Now she’s a high school English teacher. If I wrote a book it would be about a dog.

  26. Tonia Ladd says:

    My story would be about helping my grandfather milk his cows. Though I was raised in the city in Montana, every summer my parents would take our family to Arkansas where we would stay at my grandparents farm. It was a big deal to sleep with Pa because whoever slept with him got to get up before dawn and help him milk the cows. All of the kids would fight for their chance to help milk cows and gather eggs. I was the youngest of all the kids so It seemed to me like I would never have my turn. I was always told that I was too little to do all of the hard work. Finally one year I threw such a fit for my turn my grandpa relented. The first morning I slept so hard I missed my chance. When I awoke and discovered that I had missed my turn I cried and whined all day about how unfair it was. That evening grandpa made a point to tell me that I had to get up very early and be ready to go when he was. I barely slept that night, I was so excited.
    We got up before sunrise and headed to the barn for our chores. I was sleepy but determined. I was finally gonna be helping like the big kids. I had no idea what I was getting into. Everything was difficult for this five year old city slicker. What was a teat? Why wasn’t the milk coming out. Why were the chickens so mean? The real shocker was when we took the bucket of warm milk back to the house and I sat down for my first bowl of cereal with “real” milk. I hated it! All of the milk I had ever had came from a carton of cold milk that we got from the store. I hated that warm milk! It didn’t taste like anything I had ever had. And where was the fun that the older kids bragged about???
    I never helped milk the cows again. Looking back now I’m grateful for the experience I had with my pa-pa.
    I wonder if I would like the taste of fresh unpasteurized milk now. And have considered getting a milk cow for my little farm here on my grandfathers land. But my grandchildren live in Montana. No one to fight over who would help grandma milk the cow…

  27. Jessica Murray says:

    I would definitely write a children’s’ book about horses!

  28. Definitely the MAJESTIC COW♡! The soft, breezy dairyland in Upstate New York caressingly floats me back to the Dignity and Beauty of Mother Nature…

  29. Jana Blackwood says:

    If I wrote a book, it would be about my Basset hounds, Buck and Clyde.

  30. Angie says:

    A turtle in New York City!!! Why? Or a happy white rabbit.

  31. Josieclare says:

    I would most definitely write about my Texas roadrunner that darts across my back yard in the country. He’s even come up on my back porch and peered at me through my french doors!

  32. Sarah Marshall says:

    After watching robins build a nest, I would like to know more!

  33. Darcy Koch says:

    If I would write a children’s book I would write about a Panda Bear.

  34. Arlene Gallegos says:

    Many years ago I used to tell my girls about a flying dog. So if I wrote a book it would be about Sally the flying dog.

  35. Lynn pittman says:

    Snappy the turtle

  36. Teresa nall says:

    It I wrote a book it would definitely be about a cow. They are by far my favorite farm animal. I grew up with cows, my favorite being jersey heffer who’s name was Maude. You could milk her, ride on her back, lay on her. She would even wear a hat.

  37. Beth Andrepont says:

    Await would have to write about puppies and their mischievous antics.

  38. Cindy Abbey says:

    I wrote a book and still have it. It is about a Squirrel and his adventures and his love of popcorn and new friends on the farm. I still have it!

  39. Kimberly Bedtelyon says:

    My pet raccoon that I had as a child.

  40. Christine says:

    My Blue Heeler, definitely! I have never ever had a dog as goofy as he is!

  41. Patricia Moore says:

    Yes, I did write a book for my 1st Granddaughter. Grace. It was a book about Gilly, the
    seagull who only had the use of one leg (hurt in an accident)-the other gulls left her alone until one day she warned the other gulls about a bad bird that would hurt them.
    The other gulls thanked Gilly and kept her as a friend after that.
