African American Children's Book to Mentor the Importance of Obedience, Consequences, and Reward
Storybook The Adventures of Ryan & Riley and Mr. Teddy the teddy bear comes to life in a mini stage play to mentor children of all ethnic backgrounds
By: Stephanie Singleton
The Adventures of Ryan & Riley and Mr. Teddy the teddy bear" tells a story about big brother Ryan and his little sister Riley along with Riley's best friend Mr. Teddy Bear. The siblings are given an assignment by their mother, however, while on their journey they make a detour that will distract them from following their mother's instructions. Once they realize their mistake, they quickly learn the importance of obedience, consequences, and reward, which are just a few principles that will become a part of their everyday life.
The storybook was written for school-aged children in the effort to mentor and encourage them while also supporting their parent's efforts by establishing a positive environment while living in today's society.
By turning her storybook into a mini-stage play Stephanie saw the opportunity to creatively produce the production as a hands-on mentoring tool that will allow children to express their creative voices, build confidence all a while have fun learning the storybook's principles!
The mini-stage play will feature both Ryan and Riley characters, as well as a "live" Mr. Teddy Bear mascot and a Little Puppy "live" mascot character. In addition to the storybook, Stephanie has written and arranged her vocals to produce its theme song titled "Hey Mr. Teddy Bear" a catchy and hipped single that has received raving reviews by children and parents of all ethnic backgrounds.
Stephanie has traveled her storybook to various locations reading to children such as in local libraries, hospitals, schools, senior adult day care, and children within various types of shelters.
