If not now, when? – A gift to his grandsons
Pots and pans are everywhere.
After hearing his grandson exclaim those words, Richard Tepler, former Ladysmith teacher and local author, said he knew the line was from his book, and that the story had stuck with 3-year-old Croix.
“The first time I read it to him,” said Tepler of Cook With Me, Croix Holland, the second of his two children’s books, “I gave him his very first copy, which was the first copy that I got, and he sat there and listened to the whole thing.”
After writing Walk With Me, Sawyer Bear for his 5-year-old grandson, Sawyer, Tepler says Croix must have known a book was coming about him.
