Throughout the years, hundreds of children’s books were read aloud to eager listeners. When two of Babe’s grandsons who live in Cando caught a frog, an inspiration for Hopper was born. With great joy, Babe adds Hopper to the list of books sure to delight boys and girls everywhere! Babe’s passions include her faith, family, friends, music and reading. She lives on the farm with her son Tom and their two dogs, Mac and Maggie.
