Wende Datema, a graduate of Western Michigan University, was born and raised in Michigan. The proud mother of three loved reading to her children at night when they were little. Sadly, she found there weren’t many bedtime or tickle time stories. So, Wende created her own stories.
Animal Bridge has children begging to be tucked into bed at night with giggles and tickles mimicking animals crossing over the children’s bellies. Wende’s second book, Sophie the Sleeping Fairy, keeps them in it, making both books the perfect bedtime combination.
