EnvoyBooks Announces A New Bedtime Childrens Adventure Book – Combining a Mysterious Teacher, Disabled Kids, Super Heroes and Lessons on Persistence and Equality

Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

Two authors, one disabled from a broken neck during a college wrestling match and the other a speech-language pathologist, bring their experience together to author an entertaining children’s adventure book now available at EnvoyBooks proudly announces the illustrated Kindle eBook publication of “Miss Quince and the Can-Do Crew! The Mysterious Teacher and Her Class of Unlikely Super Heroes.”

Authors Mark and Katie Whyte wrote this super heroes book for kids as the story of a class of disabled children and an unusual teacher who helps them develop skills they never thought possible. This book focuses on helping the kids to think about and develop what they “can-do” rather than on what they can-not do. This fanciful and adventurous children’s book has life lessons on courage under pressure, overcoming bullying, and becoming a genuine super hero! This book is aimed at ages 8-12 but has a fun and encouraging message for a much wider age range. Currently available in Kindle format (, other mobi and hard cover formats to follow.

Co-author, Mark Whyte states, “I broke my neck wrestling in college at cervical 6-7, when I was just 20 years old. As such, I understand the daily difficulties, hassles and disappointments that come with being disabled. But I’ve tried to never let that stop me from living life to the fullest. That is the message that Katie and I have conveyed in this book. Your various disabilities may be a huge inconvenience, but they do not have to stop you from living powerfully every day.”

Adding an extra bit of authenticity to their writing, the Whyte’s oldest son is autistic and Katie works daily with special needs children as a speech-language pathologist. Authors bio:

In what the Whyte’s intend to be a series, this first installment follows Marcus and his new Can-Do Crew friends as he begins a whole new way of living after a life-changing injury. His real adventure starts when he enters the classroom behind the yellow door and meets a mysterious, perhaps magical teacher. Her class is made up of a variety of special-needs students with a “can-do” spirit that equates to some very cool and unique skills. Soon enough, Marcus finds that being disabled is simply not the handicap that most think it is – in fact, he’s never had so much fun before.

“Miss Quince and the can-Do Crew” is published by EnvoyBooks, the Whyte’s own indie publishing house, Mark states, “Katie and I are grateful for the simpler publishing options available in this day and age that allows us to take an idea and put it into print in a quick and nearly hassle free manner. Our intention is to help others like us to publish their own books. For this book, our hope is that it will encourage kids and parents alike and that all will dream big dreams and work to live them out.”

One reviewer stated: “As a pediatrician, retired after 42 years of practice, I highly recommend this little book. It is very well written and illustrated. The authors speak from years of experience in dealing with special needs children. Their positive attitude shows through on every page. We need to see more such books. How about a “Miss Quince” series?” William R. Fackler, M.D.

New Childrens Book Aims to Help Readers Self-esteem

Joplin, MO (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

After his wife noticed some of her students’ home lives or other factors hindering their learning, author J.R.S. decided to write “The Book with No Name” (published by AuthorHouse).

The husband-and-wife duo teamed up to create a children’s book that would appeal to all students whose life situations have interfered with their creativity, learning or interactions with others.

“We wanted to show children that being different is OK,” J.R.S. says. “Being a little uncomfortable about being different is also OK. We also know that one should never judge anybody for being different, having a disability, or just being a loner. So by writing this book it gave us insight into helping young readers overcome their troubles and everyday life problems.”

The book includes colorful illustrations of childhood situations like bullying, run-ins with authority and embarrassment for being different.

Each illustration is accompanied by motivational phrases for young readers to incorporate into their lives as safety mechanisms against teasing or confrontation.

J.R.S. says “The Book with No Name” can help young readers believe in themselves and overcome societal norms.

Bullying Can Affect Childrens Long-Term Health says Staten Island Pediatrician

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 24, 2014

Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Staten Island pediatric care center, responds to an article published on February 17 by Medical News Today, which discusses the harmful health effects that can stem from childhood bullying.

According to the February 17 article published by Medical News Today titled “Bullying affects children’s long-term health, study shows,” researchers have found that bullied children can experience “severe and lasting” health implications.

A recent study reported in Pediatrics, led by Laura Bogart from Boston Children’s Division of General Pediatrics, followed and interviewed 4,000 children and adolescents, from fifth to 10th grade, about their mental and physical health and about any bullying they experiences.

The study found that bullying was definitely linked with worse mental and physical health, depressive symptoms and lower senses of self-worth. Children who reported extensive chronic bullying experienced additional difficulties with physical activities.

Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, Staten Island pediatric care center, affirms the study’s findings and believes early interventions are necessary to impede the downward healthy trajectory victims may experience. “Long-term bullying definitely has a severe impact on a child’s overall health,” he says. “More bullying intervention is needed because the sooner we can keep a child from being bullied, the less of a chance the bullying will have a damaging effect on their future health.”

Gabriel Pediatrics provides comprehensive pediatric care to children throughout the New York area with practices both in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Our board certified pediatricians and experienced staff help provide a very warm and nurturing environment for both you and your children. Our approach combines the latest treatment methods with the personal attention you should expect from your doctor. Simply put, we understand the importance of communication and trust and we are earning that trust one family at a time.

Children’s Book Author Tonia Allen Gould Explores the Concept of Home in Her New Book

Santa Rosa Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 03, 2014

Children’s author Tonia Allen Gould believes “home” should be a sanctuary for kids, a place where they feel safe, secure, and loved. The concept of home is very personal to Gould, as she was moved into foster care after child services discovered she was suffering from physical abuse at fifteen. Now an adult with almost twenty years of parenthood and entrepreneurialism under her belt, Tonia is a living, breathing example that is possible to break that cycle of abuse and to go out and carve a path for oneself.

In her new picture book, Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore (Mira Digital Publishing, 2014) and app (Skies America Publishing, 2013), Gould introduces young readers to a cartoon land and sea fiddler crab (drawn by former SpongeBob SquarePants storyboard directors) who wants to build his home on the idyllic shores of Corte Magore, but must overcome obstacles to do so.

“I want to show children that life isn’t always peaches and cream,” says Gould. “But if you’re willing to put your nose to the grindstone and ignore the bullies and the naysayers, in the end, everything usually works out okay.”

In a thoughtful interview, Gould can explore the following topics:

    Overcoming difficult circumstances as a child
    Dedication, independence, and hard work
    Discussing the concept of home with young children
    How books encouraged her to dream for a better life
    Kids & technology – why she first launched her book as an iPad app

After leaving the foster care system, Gould moved to California and built a thriving marketing and promotions agency with a great deal of perseverance and self-reliance.

“In some ways, this book is about coming to California – my Corte Magore,” Gould says. “It’s about leaving my past behind by working very hard and daring to dream of something better for myself and my own family.”

Tonia Allen Gould is a wife, mother, author, marketing expert, and sought after speaker. She is the founder and CEO of Tagsource, an award-winning nineteen-year-old consumer promotions and marketing agency.

In Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore, Gould explores the concepts of perseverance, hard work, bullying, and finding a place to call home for young readers. Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore is available through the iTunes store for $ 3.99.
