That book rocked!!!


I really liked the book that you wrote.  It was really, really cool!  I liked the part at the very end when Taylor went to the nursing home.  I think in my opinion that it was the coolest book I ever read in my whole entire life.




This book was great.


I enjoyed it very much.  I liked how he would go around every year and deliver cookies and gifts to all the neighbors.  I especially liked when he went to the nursing home and gave all the teddy bears to everybody.  This book was great.

Visit to YESS in Des Moines, Iowa

Barbra Bass Visits YESS

I recently visited YESS (Youth Emergency Services & Shelter) in Des Moines, Iowa along with 3XWrestling owner Todd Countryman.  I learned of YESS after a conversation with Countryman, who is a volunteer at the shelter.  Jana Daisys gave me a great tour and educated me about YESS and their mission.

YESS is a private nonprofit organization serving children and their families in Central Iowa. The agency opened in 1973 as a drop-in center for runaway teens and has grown into a well-established, highly-regarded, accredited agency designed to keep children safe. YESS is a safety net of services, providing healing and hope in times of crisis.

As the largest youth shelter and the only crisis nursery of its kind in the state of Iowa, YESS serves over 1,000 children each year – newborn to age 17 – providing emergency shelter, crisis intervention, and counseling services in an effort to heal families and change lives. YESS‘ range of services meet the physical, mental, and social health needs of children and teens, creating an environment where families can thrive.

I donated 50 copies of my book “The Crocheted Santa” in gift bags, which also included a teddy bear and holiday themed notepads, for the children that will be located in the shelter during the holiday season. Two of the books will remain in the shelter’s permanent on-site library.
