PAWTUCKET, R.I. - Oct. 15, 2018 - PRLog -- Ryan loves animals, nature, and spending time with his grandfather. His grandfather tells him about the value of being positive, living in the moment and how every day is special. But when Ryan is confronted by a bully at school, will his grandfather's advice help him have "an extraordinary day?"

Colorfully illustrated with 12 stunning images created by Joseph Petrucci, "Ryan's Extraordinary Day" will not only help children understand the concept of being present in the moment, it will also introduce concepts like gratitude, thankfulness and forgiveness, in a positive, developmentally appropriate manner.
