PRLog - Jan. 14, 2014 - CALGARY, Alberta -- Calgary, AB While most kids don’t go through the trouble of hopping on the resolution bandwagon, there’s one commitment that parents can make that is guaranteed to have a long-lasting impact: reading with their children.
Too Many Teddies
In keeping with the spirit of making positive changes that stick with us throughout the year, Too Many Teddies is a new children’s book by author Shelley Arnusch that will help parents open up dialogues with even the youngest of children on how they can be the best version of themselves.
Arnusch, already a successful non-fiction writer, was inspired to write her first children’s book based on a love of reading that was instilled in her early on.
“I was a huge reader as a child. As far back as I can remember, my parents took the time to read to me and with me and instilled in me a love of words and engaging stories. This book has been created with the concept of interactive reading in mind. It’s a lot of fun, no doubt, but I also wanted there to be a broader message that helped parents to really engage with their kids," explains Arnusch, whose work is a fixture in Canadian magazines.
Too Many Teddies tells the story of a little girl who finds herself beset by an over-abundance of stuffed toys and, after much thought, decides the best course of action is to give her teddies away to other kids. The book is bound to resonate after the holidays, when most kids find themselves inundated with new toys while the old ones get left by the wayside. In this way, Too Many Teddies is a great way to teach kids about how they can translate their own good fortune into a way of helping others who might not have as much as they do.
Too Many Teddies is Arnusch’s first children's book, and is published by Be That Books, an innovative publishing company with a focus on publishing authors with a view to inspiring self-improvement.
