Dr. Walter R. Hoge Pens Children’s Book to Help Readers Get the Most Out of the Natural World Around Them

For the author, there is more to life than glitter and gold, and one has lots to learn from and enjoy in life, particularly when getting lost.

San Diego, California, USA – WEBWIRE

Catch the book display for “Easter: McEaster Valley” by Dr. Walter R. Hoge at the LA Times Festival of Books 2022.

Fancy a children’s book that both kids and adults could enjoy and reflect over everything that the natural world has to offer? Pick up then a copy of “Easter: McEaster Valley” (ReadersMagnet; 2020) by Dr. Walter R. Hoge.

“Easter: McEaster Valley” is a unique and earthy tale that is reminiscent of William P. Young’s “The Shack,” in that the author wrote it for his children. The storybook serves as a parable that there is more to life than glitter and gold and that sometimes, the places where one gets lost are exactly where they need to be.

Dr. Hoge started writing “Easter: McEaster Valley” when he was pondering life after the death of his wife. With lots of things on his mind, he felt the great need to write them down.

““I just sat down, started writing this book. I had all these thoughts about things that were important to me, how wonderful the life I had. I used to sit down, lie down with my kids, and I tried to get them to sleep. I would tell them stories about McEaster Valley… and I just hope they would fall asleep but they wouldn’t. It seemed like when I was telling stories, the ones they liked the best about McEaster Valley, and so I would make up these stories.

“I think what I was doing was really talking about how fortunate I have been in my life…”

Dr. Hoge hopes that his book will help readers find ways to get the most out of the natural world around them, maximize their life experiences with zest and positivity, and, more importantly, care for nature.

“I tried to show what my feelings were for the best of people and the best of life and doing things for the best of causes and also respecting the environment because it provides for us. There’s so many things we could do without damaging it. I think that’s the really basic theme of it.”

A Debuting Book by Children’s Book Author Linda Elliott, Asks the Question: “Who’s Going to Tie Your Shoes?”

McDowell, KY – WEBWIRE

A mother’s love means the world to a child. It nourishes, cures, and teaches. A mother’s love is unconditional and lasts a lifetime. A mother will always carry her child in her heart even if he or she had already grown into an adult.

Every reader, young and old, will undoubtedly be moved by a novel that honors the love of moms. Linda Elliott, a children’s book author, has written a lovely poetry book that parents and their children will enjoy together. With the release of her book Who’s Going to Tie Your Shoes? –everyone is welcomed on a nourishing and emotional adventure.

“Who’s Going to Tie Your Shoes?” is just as much a book for adults as it is for kids. It includes original hand-drawn drawings by the author. “Who’s going to tie your shoes?” a mother asks her child, which appears to be a fairly insignificant question. But as the book proceeds, Elliott asks a series of questions that may represent some parents’ hidden concerns. Worries about who will look after their children if they go missing unexpectedly or when the Father calls them home.

Elliott got the opportunity to talk with other cancer sufferers after supporting her sister during her battle with the disease. She chatted with a young mother who was concerned about her family while waiting for her sister to finish her therapy. They prayed for her and her family and those who were facing similar challenges as her sister and the young mother.

The book is dedicated to people who are dealing with a terrifying sickness. It will not only entertain but will also encourage readers to value their loved ones and to pray for everyone suffering.

Children’s Dysgraphia Book Free for 2022 National Handwriting Day

 Writing Right: A Story About Dysgraphia, an illustrated children’s book from Watertree Press, is being given away in digital form for free on Sunday, January 23, 2022 in honor of National Handwriting Day. Writing Right provides an empathetic look at Noah, a third-grade boy with dysgraphia, a disability that affects writing skills and can make learning difficult. The digital book can be acquired for free throughout the day from the Amazon Kindle Store or viewed online at WritingRight.org.

Writing Right follows Noah as he learns about dysgraphia and how to work through it. He and his mom find new ways of approaching difficult tasks, as well as work with an occupational therapist to help improve his skills. Through Noah’s story, the author hopes to shed some light on this lesser-known disability and aid those affected.

Writing Right’s author is Cassandra Baker, a high school student from Virginia. For her Girl Scout Gold Award project, she wanted to write a children’s book that would help kids cope with the learning disability dysgraphia. According to the author, “Kids don’t always understand learning disabilities, but they do know that sometimes things that others find easy can be really hard for them.” She sought counsel from an Occupational Therapist to ensure that the book was addressing children with dysgraphia with an appropriate and compassionate perspective. Writing Right also includes a resource section that parents and caregivers can use to find additional information about supporting individuals with dysgraphia.

“As someone who loves pens, I think that National Handwriting Day is great, but I can imagine that it would be frustrating to kids with dysgraphia,” said Baker. “I hope that by making Writing Right available for free, I can help make the day better for those kids.”

Writing Right is available in full-color paperback and Kindle eBook versions. Additionally, the author has created a companion website at WritingRight.org where visitors can learn more about dysgraphia and find helpful resources. While the Kindle eBook version will be free on January 23, 2022 for National Handwriting Day, the online PDF version at WritingRight.org will continue to be free after the event.
