Small Business Saturday and Indies First Event!


Christmas is almost here—and for Abby, it will be a Pennsylvania holiday with her cousin Josh. Together they'll sample Philly cheese steaks and whoopee pies; visit Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United States; hear the sound of rocks that ring like bells; and choose the perfect blue spruce from one of the state's 1,400 Christmas tree farms. What a wonderful trip!


Martha Peaslee Levine divides her time between writing for children and working as a psychiatrist at Penn State/Hershey Medical Center. She's also a rock climber and a brown belt in Tae Kwan Do. Martha lives in Middletown, PA.

Rachel Dougherty lives in Philadelphia, very close to the “Rocky” steps. She graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010 and hasn't put down a paintbrush since. Visit her at
