Hi I’m Lyndal Stock – a stay at home mother to a gorgeous little boy and wife to a wonderful husband and now author of a children’s book series.

Prior to having my son I was an Occupational Therapist but always knew that “I had a book” in me but didn’t know where or how to start so it was always in the back of my mind but I never did anything about it.

When I had my son I knew that I didn’t want to return to work and that I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible, this meant that I had to find a job that I could do from home in the few hours that I had available whilst looking after him. I decided now was the time to explore my dream of being an author.

Reading has always been a joy in my life and I knew I wanted to instil that love of reading in my son. I also wanted to instil in him positive life values that would be with him and serve him well through his life. It is from these desires that the “I am” series was created.

Reading is fun and a lovely way to spend time with your children it is also a good way to introduce adult concepts to children by combining simple sentences with colourful pictures. The “I am” books have been written to begin introducing the concepts and behaviours of positive  values to young children. They are simple and easy to read and the illustrations engage the child and allow you to discuss the behaviour that corresponds to the value.

I am very proud to have written this series and now that I have started this is just the beginning. I have some exciting plans in place for My Growing Values so come back and visit my website frequently to see what’s new.
