What Hides Inside? is a read-along and participation book introducing where things come from using original illustrations to help learn about nature, animals, and themselves. It helps stimulate conversations with a child and ends with a loving, joyful message.

Illustrations are original art by the author, and include areas to increase the knowledge of art, colors, and shapes. It is an interactive book for beginner readers and for a parent to read to a young child. (NOTE: She will be joining us for Story Time on June 3rd at Noon.)



Cheryl J. Sachse is an award-winning artist and is currently showing in four different galleries. She has been involved in the arts most of her life not only in expression but in the enjoyment of seeing, hearing and feeling. She has worked in most mediums, including pottery, glass work, oils, acrylics, pencils, alcohol inks, writing and even finger painting. But her favorite is watercolor. Her art is in five countries and multiple states. She illustrated her first children’s book, Mooseberry, Mooseberry, Gooseberry Pie, which was released in October 2018.

While she has her master’s in HR, her career really began when she retired in 2012 and picked up her joy in art. Currently, living in the Southwest with her husband of fifty plus years, she wanders the red rocks of the south, traveling the world looking for the next subject matter. Her inspirations come from wildlife pictures taken by her son and from her daughter and six grandchildren.

"Courageous. Unflinching. Surprising. 

After decades of believing she had to compromise her essential nature to please other people, Barbara Moore learned to speak up for herself. In addition, she learned to tell her story in such a way that it encourages all of us to notice where we are not being true to ourselves. Full of grit and grace, Submissive No More is an inspiration." - Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, The Less I Hold



A retired registered nurse, Barbara Davis (who publishes under the pseudonym Barbara Moore enjoys writing as an avocation. Her writing has been supported by Women Writing for (a) Change and her local writers' forum. Having published essays and poetry, this is her first book. Author "Barbara Moore" rose from the ashes of startling desolation in a sad marriage. Encouraged by writer friends, Barbara sensed a growing urge to share her story. She would like readers, in whatever circumstances, to glimpse options for freedom, authenticity, and joy.
