An awesome book cover, great hand-drawn colored pictures & proper font & writing style.

The Children’s Book Cami and Wyatt Practice Patience is on Amazon. Story by Stacy C. Bauer. Illustrated by Rebecca Sinclair

Cami and Wyatt can’t wait to go fishing with their family, but their patience is tested when nothing goes as planned. Join the Kangaroo family as they find a way to have fun, even when there are hurdles to hop over.

I’ve struggled with patience my entire life and I wanted to write a book that would help other families practice patience! As far as the setting, I’ve been fishing my entire life (with my family as a child and now with my own kids), so it comes straight from real life! ~Author Stacy C. Bauer

This is the 2020 book I didn’t know I needed. Replace the canoe with our house and fishing with day-to-day life and this is a story about practicing patients through quarantine. 

One thing that I adore about these books, and especially this one, is that while the title may say that it’s about Cami and Wyatt learning a lesson, the reality is the parents are also being reminded of the importance of patience.

The Children’s Book Bug Hunt is on Amazon. Story by Tom Story. Illustrated by Ashlee Spink

Bug Hunt is a book about a little girl who loves finding bugs and adding them to her book. When an angry wasp gets upset, the little girl calms it down and shows it her favourite book. Bug Hunt shows it’s important to be kind to all creatures.

Bug Hunt was inspired by my bug loving daughter as she loved drawing bugs in her favourite book. Often people struggle with creepy crawlies but that can be because we don’t understand them and like so much in life, what we don’t understand, we fear. ~Author Tom Story

I love when the Wasp makes friends with the little girl and love all the bugs dressed up in her favourite book. Out of 5 I’d give it a 9. ~Elissa Story – Inspirer of Bug Hunt

The Children’s Book Our Pledge Our Promise The Pledge of Allegiance Explained is on Amazon. Story by Sheri Wall; Illustrated by Gary Manly

Happiness during school should begin in the morning. In many classrooms or homes throughout the United States, our Pledge of Allegiance is recited first thing! Children often don’t understand what all the big words they are saying mean.

With easy rhymes and vibrant pictures, “Our Pledge, Our Promise” increases their knowledge about our country, the flag, and contributes to happy attitudes for the rest of the school day. Happy children are kind children – and that’s a promise!

I remember not understanding what I was saying when I was a child in elementary school. After discussing this very thing with some local teachers, I wrote a poem to try and help their students. After getting positive feedback, I developed the poem into a book in order to help even more teachers and parents. ~Author Sheri Wall

J. Hanson, Children’s Book Author writes: I love this book! It helps our children understand what the Flag represents. Teaching them about the red, white & blue and how their freedom gives them opportunities in their daily lives is so important. Check out the fun history facts at the end of the book and the meaning of the flag colors. Highly recommended!

Adventures of Mr Macaw

The Children’s book The Adventures of Mr. Macaw is on Amazon. Story by Leticia Ordaz and illustrated by Yana Popova

When two brothers lose their magical Mr. Macaw in tropical storm, they discover acts of kindness and the true spirit of their abuelito’s village in Mexico. The Adventures of Mr. Macaw shows that we can always count on our community to help us in times of need. Children will see that their is so much goodness in this world and that hope and happiness should never be lost.

My idea came from an adventure my family had two years ago in Mexico during hurricane season. Hurricane Bud was approaching and our kite Mr. Macaw was swept away in the storm. My boys discovered strangers were willing to stop their own storm preps to help them get their kite back. They got to see that kindness matters and that happiness comes from lending a hand to someone in need. ~Author Leticia Ordaz

IWhat a gorgeous book!” The vibrant colors help to bring the story to life. What’s more, at the heart of the story is an endearing message of community and togetherness.

When Mr. Macaw is lost in a storm, an entire village comes to the aid of two young boys who have lost more than their kite but a beloved family friend. If you want a feel good read that will leave you wanting to hear the next adventure of this magical bird, this story is it! We loved it! Congrats to this author!
