Timmy the kitten’s bed stays dry (Smart Stories Book 3) by Alan Johnstone

Timmy is very sad. He also wants to sleep over at Corry’s house but he still wets his bed!

This story helps children to solve the problem of bed wetting by assisting the child to subconsciously accept behavioural change as he or she listens to a story.

Children learn through stories and easily associate with the characters in stories. This natural tendency provides a parent a wonderful opportunity to guide his or her child’s behaviour and feelings and teach them understandings with which to improve their EQ.

In the ebook, notes are provided which teach parents, educators and play therapists the valuable skills of story telling. The notes are interspersed in the story and explain why certain words and ideas are offered in the story.

Dear Evil Stepmother by P.G. Johnson

“The woman said to him, ‘Do away with these children. You cannot even keep me. How then can you keep all these mouths?’ for was she not a stepmother?” (from Hansel and Gretal)

Why are stepmothers ubiquitously portrayed in fairy tales and folk legends as wicked, plotting and cruel? Is it because they will do anything on earth to shove the stepchildren out so they and theirs can inherit all the love and money? Is there such a thing as a non-evil stepmother? Or are all stepmothers evil breed?

Dear Evil Stepmother is the engrossing and poignant account of a disenfranchised father’s child, and the woman who heaps shame and guilt on innocent children just because they are in the way. If you are a stepmother, or thinking about becoming one, this short but powerful tale will evoke an honest appraisal of who you are in relationship to your stepchildren, or future stepchildren, your partner and his family. Forewarned is forearmed, for in the end, evil stepmothers dance on the red hot coals of hell!

Learn Your Colors? by David Hession

Learn Your Colors? is a children’s book with a message that can be appreciated by people of all ages and ethnicities. It is a sweet story about a four-year old girl whose father is white and mother is black, who cannot for the life of her learn her colors. Her father tries his hardest to teach her to recognize different colors, until one day his daughter asks about her own skin color. That is where the story gets both complicated and thought-provoking.
After trying desperately to answer his daughter’s question in a way that she could understand, and a unavoidable journey through the history of race relations, he begins to question his own reasoning for trying to teach her to recognize colors in the first place. Maybe she, and the rest of the world, would be better off if as parents they did not say to their children – Learn Your Colors.
David Martin Hession is a professional educator who has been teaching high school in both Miami, FL and Trenton, NJ for over 15 years.
His life-long dream was to travel the world and meet new people. His dream came true in 2003, when he met and married the love of his life – Awa Douake, who is from Cote d’Ivoire, Africa – while he was on vacation in Madrid, Spain.
David and Awa have three beautiful children – Afousiata, Khadee, and Rakim – for whom this book is written.
Their hope is that people will read this book – Learn Your Colors? – and really take a look at themselves and how they teach their children about people’s skin color. They would love to have people see themselves and others for who they are and not for where they are from or what they look like.

You’re The Daddy We Wanted: A Father’s Adoption Story by GAVIN ANDRES

An adoptive father’s perspective on the challenging and uplifting process of adopting two gorgeous, but traumatised children. Covering the rigours of the adoption assessment process, being linked with a prospective son and daughter, and the fateful first meeting of the new family unit, “You’re The Daddy We Wanted” focuses primarily on the first two years of the adoption experience.

Andres writes in an engaging and refreshingly honest way, as he explains and explores how the bonds of attachment form slowly between the children and their new parents. In parts witty and in others heartbreakingly sad, this book provides a rare male insight into being an adoptive parent.

“A real eye-opener. This story evokes the emotional and intellectual challenges of adoption in a powerful and very human way. It’s one thing to hear adoption laws and practices discussed in the media; quite another to experience them alongside a real couple, trying to do the right thing at every different, challenging stage. For that reason, I’m sure this book will be of great value to any prospective adopter, and of genuine human interest to others.” James Spackman, Watkins Publishing.
