Emily Waits for Her Family

Virtual Book Tour October ‘09

Join Carol Zelaya, author of the children’s picture book, Emily Waits for Her Family (Richlee Publishing, April ‘08), as she virtually tours the blogosphere in October on her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion!


Carol Zelaya is a former nurse, recently widowed, and mother of two grown children. She grew up in the Chicago area, where she eventually met and married her husband and where they raised a family. Having relocated to Oregon in 1996, Zelaya began her love affair with nature and its beautiful creatures. Inspired by her surroundings, she started taking pictures and writing. Writing poetry led to writing three children’s books, of course, in rhyme. Zelaya’s Emily the Chickadee books are the true story of the special bond between a tiny bird and a little girl and the true meaning of family.

Carol is now moving to the San Diego area to be near her children. You can visit her online at


Read Emily Waits for Her Family and follow the true story of the special bond between a tiny bird and a little girl, from first meeting to leaving, from new life to old friends. This story is told in a timeless, three-part series, with an easy-reading rhyme, and is certain to delight and touch your heart.


“While there are other authors known for their portrayals of nature and animals, they have not promoted the scientific observation techniques that are used and included in a chart at the end of this book.”Jane Herbst, NYSUT teacher

“A delightful story for any child that enjoys wildlife.”Catherine Allen, reviewer

“The story…is enjoyable and teaches at the same time.”Tara’s View of the World


As I look closer, what do I see?
In the nest there seems to be,
The little bird named Emily,
And a big surprise of one, two, three!
Yes, three little eggs for me to see.

You’ll soon be a mommy Chickadee!

Carol Zelaya’s EMILY WAITS FOR HER FAMILY VIRTUAL BLOG TOUR ‘09 will officially begin on Oct. 5 and end on Oct. 30. You can visit Carol’s blog stops at during the month of October to find out more about this great book and talented author!


These books are extremely sweet. These will definitely be cherished by young and old who read them. The books teach children about birds while charming them with wonderful rhyming text and colorful illustrations. There are three books in the series and all follow the chickadee Emily. These are great books that you'll enjoy with your children for a long time.

Thank you to Pump Up Your Blog Promotions and the Author for sending me copies of the books to review.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
