Author and Illustrator

My name is Dana Lehman and I am the author of the Walnut Grove series of children’s books. All three books help encourage character development. I graduated with an Associates degree from Macomb Community College. I always enjoyed creative writing, and one of my dreams became reality in 2007 when my first book, Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing, was published. I currently reside in Allenton, Michigan with my husband and our two sons.

Judy Lehman is my mother-in-law. She has been an artist for thirty-eight years. Judy is a retired schoolteacher. She currently resides in Hubbard Lake, Michigan with her husband George. I have had authors ask if she would be interested in doing illustrations for them, but she graciously declines. She is retired and enjoys a lot of other activities, such as golf and camping.


My Thoughts

Sammy the squirrel was all excited that his cousins Silly and Sassy were coming for a visit to Walnut Grove.  He remembered they could be a little mischievous but hopefully they would not cause any trouble.  

When Silly and Sassy arrived Sammy introduced them to his friends and then they all started playing games.  Sure enough right off the bat Silly and Sassy were playing around and one of them got hurt.  They admitted that they knew they should not have been playing a game that could possibly cause harm to someone. Sassy admitted that Silly dared her.  Then she apologized for hurting Silly and they were off to play another game.  

As Bucky and Silly took off together Silly decided to not only dare Bucky the beaver to do something Bucky knew he should not do, Silly double dared Bucky.   Bucky took the double dare and it put him in great danger.

If you would like to find out just what it was that Silly dared Bucky to do, grab a copy of the book and find out all the trouble Silly and Sassy caused at Walnut Grove.

What would you do if someone double dared you to do something that you knew you should not do?  

In this story the author teaches children to go with their own instincts when choosing between right and wrong.  She also emphasizes to never dare anyone to do something the other person is uncomfortable doing.  

I have now read the first two books in the series and they both teach good values.   

The illustrations will stir the imagination while reading about the characters as they play games and yes get themselves into some bad situations.  

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

I received a free copy of this book from Lehman Publishing for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
