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.

‘Bop-It and No More Covid’ – Book One in The ‘Bop-It’ Series Written and Illustrated By Jessica J. Wohlgemuth

VANDERHOOF, B.C. -- Children's book, "Bop-It and No More Covid" (ISBN 978-0228839965; paper), written by country prairie girl Jessica J. Wohlgemuth, looking to help children cope during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The world shut down in March 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. It left many of us unsure what comes next and how life would look. Canadian country girl, Jessica Wohlgemuth, wanted to help ease the anxiety of her nieces and nephews - so along came "Bop-It and No More Covid!"

With information always changing and regulations never far from the horizon, parents, guardians and teachers alike may struggle to find a way to educate our children, when it is something we ourselves know very little. "Bop-It and No More Covid" offers parents and teachers a unique way to reflect on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it may have affected your children.

Are you tired of living the COVID life? Find hope and cheer in this little book about a fuzzy little grey bunny named Bop-It. Read about how he and his friends learn to cope through the pandemic, finding fun in the new normal.

"This bunny tale - from the characters to the plot to the emotions this author / illustrator expertly showed in both words and her illustrations - will appeal to all children. Adults are desperate for help through this, which means children are even more confused by the whole thing. I commend Jessica J. Wohlgemuth for taking on the chore of creating a story that explains, educates, inspires, and shows ALL ages that this pandemic can be 'kicked' and we can resume happy lives. I definitely recommend this book to all parents who are looking for a way to help both themselves and their children through this very trying time. 5 - Stars!" -- Amy Lignor, Reader Views.
