Lapeer, MI Author Publishes Children’s Book

Life and Times in Bunny Run: School, a new book by Rick L. Cooper, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Sometime in the course of early human history, it was decided that all parents had to tell the next generation what a hard and unusual childhood they had. This was practiced worldwide and was handed down across all known civilizations. Most of these stories were considered to be myths. Some of the stories were noted and documented as legends, which had been handed down from generation to generation. These stories sometimes consisted of things that may have some benefit to the next generation or stories that were too unbelievable to believe, like the ones Rick Cooper’s father used to tell him and his brothers.

These are a few of those many stories.
