Latest Release: KC's New Friend

We're excited to announce the release of Estelle Herndon's latest book, KC's New Friend, beautifully illustrated by Samantha Bell. 

We first met this cute mouse last year in KC's Christmas Discovery, and this summer, she made a new friend. This sweet story was created by Essie's great grandson Brax, when he began talking about children making friends in school. 

About the Book:

Sometimes, you just need to take that first step …

Come hang out with KC the Mouse again as she makes yet another discovery – she makes a new friend!

We first met KC in KC’s Christmas Discovery. Now it’s the summer months, and she’s scurrying around just like always. 

Making friends isn’t always easy, but KC shows us how it’s done.

KC's New Friend is available on Amazon in paperback, hardcover, and on Kindle, and available from most major booksellers by request.

New Release: Maddie's New Normal

We're excited to announce the release of our latest children's book, Maddie's New Normal, written by Tammy Parker and illustrated by Addie Gilley.

About the Book:

NO MORE SCHOOL! NO MORE FUN! NO WAY! 

When life suddenly changes for Maddie and everyone she knows, she must learn to make the best of her new normal.

COVID-19 changed routines, habits, and general daily life for people all over the world. Maddie's struggle through these changes serves as encouragement for all of us to accept our challenges and enjoy life as it is.  Her struggles help children realize they are not alone.  

Colors and art can show emotion.  We’ve used illustrations in this story to show how Maddie adjusts to this new way of living. Notice that the colors fade away to gray as Maddie struggles with the challenges presented by the pandemic, but then the bright and cheery colors return as she finds her happiness again in the midst of these uncertain times. 

Available in Paperback, Hardcover, and on Kindle.
