New book celebrates the magic of adoption and diversity through creative storytelling

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- Adam Swain Ferguson, founder, Purple Fox Entertainment, is a creative producer and author. His new book release, "Love Without Wings: An Adoption Fairytale" (ISBN: 979-8986768014), was inspired by a true story - his own story - and celebrates diverse families made complete through adoption. It's scheduled to be released during National Adoption Month (November) on November 19, National Adoption Day and is available for pre-order on the Purple Fox Entertainment website here: https://purplefoxentertainment.com/product/love-without-wings/

While "Love Without Wings" is written for children, it's also the perfect read for adoption agency staff, counselors and teachers in search of a positive educational tool.

After two years of waiting and wishing, the author and his husband had nearly given up hope on adopting. But then it happened. They received a call that would change their lives forever. The woman who would be their son's biological mother had chosen them to adopt her baby boy.

From the day their son, Taran, was born Ferguson had made up a fairytale-style bedtime story that told a magical tale of how their family came to be. He soon realized that this story had the potential to move beyond the nursery walls. So, he set to work.

The book's storyline centers around two kings who embark on a magical quest to become fathers; they have a shooting star as their guide. At the end of a sparkling trail, their greatest wish is finally fulfilled after a miraculous encounter with a fairy. Coincidentally, she'd been wishing on that same star, but her wish was to find the perfect family for the very special baby growing in her belly.

"As an adoptive dad, I wrote 'Love Without Wings' with hope that it will encourage children to feel pride in the magic that they bring to their families' lives," Ferguson says.

Since becoming a father, Ferguson says he's had difficulty finding books that approach adoption from the creative storytelling side of things. He found most to focus on the mechanics and process. And, he's not alone. To date, many have had the opportunity to preview the book and agree that it takes a refreshing look at adoption.

Amanda K., a director at LifeLong Adoption says, "As an adoptive parent coordinator who works alongside waiting adoptive parents, I appreciate that this book provides hope and light during a journey that can be difficult. The way this story is full of meaning and love is perfectly done."

Geraldine O., Ph.D., a child psychologist shares that the book is "a beautiful and thoughtfully written fairy tale about adoption from the unique perspective of love from the child's biological and adoptive parents."

She says that this is not often depicted in children's picture books and believes that this book will make a wonderful addition to a child's library as well as serving as a much-needed therapeutic tool for child psychologists.

Adoptees are singing its praises too. After reading "Love Without Wings," Mike P. says that he never had the opportunity to read a children's story that reflected his family.

"It's wonderful to see it happening in 'Love Without Wings,' he says. "As an adopted kid, being wanted is a key ingredient to feeling loved, and this book really sends that message."

Veronica Stanley Hooper, the book's illustrator, has created beautiful images with many details for an eager child to discover as their parents read this feel-good story about unconditional love, wishes and dreams come true.

"This unique story shares the elements of adopting a child through a heart-warming storyline," Hooper says. "And, while this tale is perfect for any family wanting to explain adoption to their children, it stands on its own as a classic fairytale too."

Kauai Humane Society to be the Beneficiary of Children’s Sing-along Book Sales

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Children's sing-along book author and vocalist Bridget Burton will donate $5 from every book bundle sale to the Kauai Humane Society (KHS), starting August 22, 2022. A special "give back" page on the book's website will keep track of purchases of "Annie Kai Lani Kai Lou: Kauai's Beloved Pup" (ISBN: 978-0996216050) hard cover print and companion digital version bundle.

Twenty-five percent of sales through this special page will be donated to KHS through year-end in support of their pet adoption programs.

"I have enjoyed the years of connecting with this organization and being a dog lover all my life, it's a pleasure to be able to give back through sales of the book," said Burton. She added that, "When I learned about KHS's off-island pet adoption programs, I felt that was the place that could make the most difference."

"Annie Kai Lani Kai Lou: Kauai's Beloved Pup" is a children's illustrated book set in Kauai and based on Bridget's dog Annie, an English Springer Spaniel. It features Annie's adventures throughout the island of Kauai as she canoes, ziplines, surfs, and even enjoys a luau with a Shih Tzu.

In its digital version children can read, or join Bridget who sings the verses, accompanied by Hawaiian steel guitar and ukulele.

The Kauai Humane Society's Executive Director Nicole Crane is delighted to accept these donations. "Our off-island adoption endeavor, Mission Mainland 2.0, recently came to an end with the successful adoption of 125 pets. We would like to continue that effort and the news of Burton's 'give back' program will certainly help us do that." With the costs on the rise for all aspects of their programs, this no-kill shelter with a high-population of pets is looking for ways to encourage and pay for off-island adoptions and reach as many people on the West Coast as possible.

In addition to the monetary donations, Burton is sending press releases to West Coast news outlets, posting on social media, and is donating Hawaiian bandanas for the next 100 pets adopted.

New Children’s Book Embraces the Bond of Parents and Child Through Life and Death

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With an aim to help families begin to heal after the terrible loss of a child, "ScootieToots and the Feathers From Heaven: A Family Healing Book" (ISBN: 978-0228866862) by Audri B. Cabness is a whimsical children's story with a powerful message that offers families an uplifting vantage point, at any point in their healing process, from which they are given the opportunity to begin to pivot from despair to serenity.

"A child's death is every parent's nightmare to say the least. But the siblings, grandparents, family and friends are also greatly impacted by that tremendous loss," says Cabness when asked why she wrote the book. "Often, they don't know what to say or how to feel. They may struggle with comforting the parents. The parents themselves may battle, not only with grief, but guilt. And the remaining children are just left devastated by the sudden loss of their sibling, cousin or friend.

"As a mother of a child who was taken too soon after birth, I wrote 'ScootieToots and the Feathers From Heaven' to offer hope to the grieving by allowing the reader to rest in the fact that their beloved child is no longer in pain, and will never experience suffering again."

Woven throughout this touching tale are biblical passages upon which the reader may reflect and find solace, and is meant for adults and children alike.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

AUDRI B. CABNESS is an author from the United States, and is also the founder of The Sebastiens Smile Foundation. In 2016, Ms. Cabness endured the pain associated with the loss of her beloved infant son, in whose honor the book was written. She conceived of the foundation as a way to help others navigate complex systems with which they might interact following the death of an infant.

Isn’t It Possible to Promote Literacy? Net Profits from 10th Anniversary Edition of ‘Little Green’ will go to Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Paraphrase, LLC, the publisher of "Little Green" (ISBN: 978-0981587943), is donating 500 copies of a special anniversary edition to Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California (RIFSoCal). For 10 years, "Little Green" has been asking, "Isn't it possible?" The frog still can't be a goose, horse, or koi, but it is possible to promote literacy and motivate children to read by providing new books to create home libraries for underserved children in Southern California.

That is, in fact, the mission of the 501(c)(3) organization Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California (www.rifsocal.org). The special edition, celebrating the 50th anniversary of RIFSoCal and the 10th anniversary of "Little Green," is also available on amazon.com through the end of 2022. Paraphrase has pledged all proceeds from the anniversary edition to RIFSoCal.

"Little Green" is a picture-book for 0-7 year olds, written by Arnold Rudnick, with illustrations by Marcelo Gorenman, featuring a little green frog on a quest to be special. He hops around from animal to animal asking "Isn't it possible?" he can be one of them and do the special things they do. While the reader learns animal groups, skills, traits and sounds, Little Green learns almost anything is possible, but he must start by being himself.

"I hope that someday 'Little Green' and 'Isn't it possible?' will be as familiar to children, and empowering, as 'I Think I Can!' from 'The Little Engine That Could,'" Rudnick says. "Reading makes ALMOST anything possible. I am really excited to partner with Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California on this mission of literacy."

"We are delighted to thank Arnold Rudnick for his most generous donation of 'Little Green,'" says Carol Henault, Executive Director of RIFSoCal. "I can't wait to share this inspirational story with the children in our Motivational Reading Program. Inspiring children's passion for reading is the greatest gift we can give them on their personal road to success. That, and frogs.

"We can always use more frog stories! As Los Angeles and Orange County's largest children's literacy organization, RIFSoCal works every day to share the magic of reading for fun and pleasure with our most vulnerable children. As of our 50th anniversary of celebrating literacy for all children, we will have served 1.7M children, and provided them with more than 5.3M books."

Los Angeles Child Author Releases His Debut Book in Conjunction with Children’s Book Week

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Seven-year-old author, Sammy Wallace, will release his debut rhyming children's picture book, "I Slept in My Bed Last Night" (ISBN 979-8985784404; WF Publications), on May 2, 2022, in conjunction with Children's Book Week.

Sammy, a first grader at Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter School (Los Angeles), is excited to take part in this national literacy initiative. As a champion of Children's Book Week, he is donating a book to all his classmates and several libraries across the San Fernando Valley. He wants to encourage other kids to write books and hopes to serve as an inspiration.

"Kids make great authors because we know what other kids like," said Sammy. "I think more kids should write books...they just need to be encouraged and told that it's possible."

Sammy created the premise of the book at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Los Angeles. Due to school closures, Sammy kept busy with his imagination and often composed stories with his grandmother.

Sammy's grandmother, Dr. Gwendolyn Mukes, who transcribed the book for him, felt that it was important to help Sammy find his literary voice while maintaining a sense of wonder and imagination. "When we started on this project almost two years ago, our country was in a turbulent time. With the onset of COVID-19 and the spotlight on racial disparages, we really wanted Sammy to just create stories that were fun and lighthearted," said Mukes.

The book is a comical story about a boy who finally decides to sleep in his bed. While fast asleep, a mysterious monster wakes him up from his dream. Confused as to exactly what the monster is, and what the monster wants, the brave boy contemplates a series of possibilities as he tries to unlock the mystery.

Early reviews call the book "funny, engaging and delightful." The book will go on sale May 2, through Amazon, Barnes & Noble (online), and in a few select stores.

Aaron Ozee Distracts Ukrainian Children from the 2022 Russian Invasion with His International Bestselling Children’s Book ‘Regulus’

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Aaron Ozee, celebrity author of the international bestselling children's book, "Regulus" (ISBN: 978-1387010790), and ingenious director of the "Regulus" movie, has officiated the execution of a secret philanthropic mission to send physical or digital copies of "Regulus" (known as Operation Red) to Ukraine to distract any children facing the unimaginable horrors of the 2022 Russian Invasion.

Businesses spanning across numerous industries operating around the world, such as Microsoft and Coca-Cola, have made the choice to either temporarily or permanently suspend their efforts in Russia to protest against the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Besides developing the plan for Operation Red, which has been set in motion for the duration of the 2022 Russian Invasion, Ozee has made the decision to endorse this monumental alliance of vendors by removing his collection of published works from the inventories of distinguished retailers across the country.

Despite launching Operation Red for the duration of the 2022 Russian Invasion, and banning the sale of his collection of published works in Russia, Ozee has found even more ways to contribute in donating royalties earned from his international bestselling children's book, "Regulus," earned from the global streaming of the "Regulus" movie, and earned from crowdfunding initiatives that celebrity shoutout networks such as Cameo have organized to raise money from the engagements their impressive library of talent have with fans.

Ozee was among the first wave of stars, and the first author, to ever join Cameo in 2017 when founded in Chicago, Illinois. Since becoming the first author to ever join Cameo, and having taken rank among the most followed celebrities on Cameo, it has enabled Ozee to converse with his fandom during periods of disease and crisis.

Ozee has never been someone who follows anything our society considers "normal," especially knowing that Ozee has always sought to break away from the expected so that he may achieve the unexpected. The former months have given birth to many new projects underneath the belt holstering a plethora of successful ventures that he carries with him everywhere he goes.

From partnering with BitClout, a decentralized social network, to open an initial coin offering (ICO) for his own cryptocurrency, Ozee Coin, to founding a dedicated merchandise storefront called Ozee Merch, with hundreds of assorted products featuring his likeness and that of his infamous rat king character, "Regulus." Each of these new projects have become another path for Ozee to donate royalties earned, just as Ozee has done with other fundraising efforts, to an organization devoted to helping those in Ukraine known as Choose Love.

Since the beginning of the 2022 Russian Invasion, and even more recently, Ozee has chosen to voice his momentous beliefs about the exacerbated combat in Ukraine. However, unlike any of his statements from earlier weeks, Ozee made a formal declaration of war against the President of Russia, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, and the Government of Russia.

"Nations fear the idea of emerging nuclear conflict, as they rightfully should, but more so the day when they will have to declare war against Russia. However, even with such an unthinkable scenario at the doorstep of every sovereign territory, it will be an option that is likely to never be considered. Our leaders may have made the conservative decision to rise above your foolish actions with the intention of avoiding ridiculous combat, but that does not mean that we as people of this world must watch as you exercise your command to kill. And, with that said, I, Dr. Aaron Ozee, and Regulus, King of the Mice, declare war against you, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, and the belligerent regime that you have constructed as your engine of death."

News about the 2022 Russian Invasion has fallen into the hands of just about everyone on this planet who chooses to remain apprised of current events, and with countless perspectives about the 2022 Russian Invasion pressuring the virtual universe, it can be somewhat troublesome for most people to disconnect truth from speculation. However, even with that being known, what Ozee mentioned in his formal declaration of war against Russia makes the stance of most of the world irrefutably clear as day. "You may have started this war, but you can be assured, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, that we are going to end it. Soon enough you, and your destructive military operations (as you have often described them), will be defused. Be ready for what comes next."

For anyone wanting to purchase "Regulus" branded merchandise or Aaron Ozee branded merchandise, please visit https://www.OzeeMerch.com.

New Children’s Book Entitled ‘Adventure Zone’ Excites Experts with Its Fun Format to Explain Pediatric Therapies

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Authors Allison Klimowicz and Veronica Stanley-Hooper have written a children's book entitled "Adventure Zone" (ISBN: 979-8524737199). This book, written for parents and children from the ages of 6 to 12 years old, explains pediatric therapies in a fun, informative way.

The narrator is the main character and an explorer. She leads the reader through a day at Adventure Zone, a pediatric therapy office. The children in the story meet new friends and work with leaders (therapists) through various therapies to develop the skills they need to be successful in their everyday lives. This colorfully illustrated book is designed in parts and can be read as a story alone or as a story and a resource with definitions that explain terms that parents and children may experience when entering a pediatric therapy office.

Pediatric speech, physical, social, and occupational therapies are featured within the storyline. Adventure Zone is an excellent resource for children, parents, teachers, therapists, and doctors to explain pediatric therapies and to introduce discussions of varying abilities and acceptance.

Adventure Zone can be found on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats at the following link: https://amzn.to/3xxelsa

Quoted from the section about speech therapy-

Hazel felt different than the other kids at school and she didn't have many friends. ...Hazel knew this place (Adventure Zone) was different. Miss Mia spoke to Hazel as she would speak to any seven year old. Hazel had so much to say, but could not find the words. ...As Hazel left the treatment room, she passed a little girl in a wheelchair. Miss Mia said the girl's name was Lilly. Excited to talk to someone new, Hazel pushed a button. Her machine (AAC Device) said, "Hello." Both Lilly and Hazel smiled when Lilly replied, "Hello!"

From the authors:

"My entire goal is to demystify what children's therapy is. We want it (pediatric therapy) to become more of a daily language for everyone. We want every child to operate to the best of their abilities and everybody's ability is just a little bit different, and that's okay," says Author, Allison Klimowicz (30+ years in the medical field and owner of Kidz Therapy Zone, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania). Learn more: https://www.ktherapyzone.com/

"The 'Adventure Zone' book can be used to educate everyone about the benefits of pediatric therapies. I see it (the 'Adventure Zone' book) as a tool for parents, teachers, and therapists. Every child should hear this story to develop and understanding for these exceptional children," says Author, Veronica Stanley-Hooper (BS in education and over 30 years' experience in education and child development).

The Vaccine for Racism, Inequality, and Hate Has Arrived in The Form of a New Children’s Book Series

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Author/Educator and Chiropractor based in Santa Monica, Dr. Todd Gewant, today announced the release of his 2nd book in the "What I Wish I Was Told" children's book series, "What I Wish I Was Told: Part 2: A Poetic Guide To Unite Us All" (ISBN: 979-8696235394).

Jane Elliott, renowned American diversity educator, endorsed "What I Wish I Was Told Part II," saying, "This book should be taught three times before college, and become the future bible of unification."

The book helps educators (primarily grades 4-12) and parents use illustrated poetry to promote and encourage dialogue with children around topics such as equality, acceptance, unity, and anti-racism. The included curriculum/activity guide helps young people explore their feelings, experiences, and opinions based on current societal issues of life.

"Poetry is an incredibly powerful tool for learning. Children will be taught how to write poetry and socialize appropriately, through the lenses of creative and free thinking, self-directed learning, and reading/writing comprehension. They will learn so much more of 'what I wish I was told' when I was young," says the author, Dr. Todd Gewant.

Each lesson in the book creates a highly unique platform for children to develop important qualities of self-esteem and an appreciation of diversity in all areas of life.

As stated by Dr. Todd, "We can help our children to become positive, caring, and creative adults through this curriculum."

Dr. Todd has been a frequent guest speaker at schools and social organizations, and has consulted with a variety of education administrators and teachers to develop a robust core curriculum around the true values of diversity.

Learn more about this original and timely journey of multicultural themes and modalities at https://whatiwishiwastold.com/.

Both books in the "What I Wish I Was Told" children's book series can be purchased on Dr. Todd's online shop or on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08KZ47BW9.

As Schools Begin Virtually, New Book Helps Ease Children’s Fears Over Online Learning

BRIDGEWATER, Va. -- Morgan Books today announced the release of their new timely book, "Madi Goes to Virtual School" (ISBN: 979-8673380277) by author Rob Morgan. As millions of school children have returned to the classroom this fall, many of them are doing so virtually, learning from kitchen tables and laptop screens rather than the familiar flexible seating and SMART boards that define so many modern teaching spaces.

And, while school districts have opted for distance learning in an effort to keep students and their communities safe, children all over the country may struggle with feeling isolated from their friends and classmates. "Madi Goes to Virtual School" reunites the stories of Rob Morgan with illustrations of Noel Mugaviri for their second children's book and will leave children excited about overcoming the challenges of this new journey.

"Madi Goes to Virtual School" tells the story of Madi, a young girl who is startled to learn that she'll be staying home on her first day of school. As Madi eats her mile-high stack of pancakes that first morning, her father assures her that while this school year will be different, different will be okay. From learning new ways to keep others safe to delighting in a stack of letters from friends, children will experience with Madi the highs and lows of learning in a new way. It doesn't take long for Madi to learn just how much fun virtual school can be!

Rob Morgan, whose wife teaches middle school English, first got the idea for the story as his family was sitting around the dinner table, discussing what life would be like for his daughters and the many others like them. Morgan's middle child, Madison, will be going to kindergarten this year, and his eldest, Ava, is returning to elementary school. "I knew that for many students this was going to be a new and potentially anxious time. I wanted to bring comfort that while this may be different, different could still be okay."

The book reunites the author with his illustrator Noel Mugaviri who has created vibrant illustrations intentionally representing the diversity of our country with students of every color represented. Families everywhere will be encouraged by reading Madi's story as they, too, face the day-to-day challenges of learning online.

Morgan lives with his wife and three children in Bridgewater, Virginia. He entered the children's literature scene in 2016 with "The Adventures of Arnie the Ant," a retelling of Elisabeth Elliot's anecdote of an ant, a mountain climber, and a contact lens.
