Kid’s books: teamwork


When I write kid’s books, teamwork is one of my favorite themes to spotlight because it makes a huge difference to others. Just to show you how this kind of support affects people, think about the story of little Seth Lane. He’s just 5 years old and he’s been battling Severe Combined Immunity Disease his whole life. He had his first bone marrow transplant when he was only 7 months old. He lives in England and has gotten encouragement from people around the world. When you have this disease, you don’t have the all-important T-cells, which keep your immune system strong. It’s a genetic disorder. The best treatment is to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Years ago, this disease was called “The Bubble Boy disease” because the victims of it have to be isolated from germs as much as possible. Today, Severe Combined Immunity Disease can be detected with a blood test.

Now that Seth is five years old, he’s begun to prefer the color yellow. He even gets excited when his little brother wears that color. He also loves the little minions in the movie “Despicable Me so his hospital room is being decorated with the minions. The latest information posted about Seth’s condition is that he’s been battling high fevers. But he still loves playing with his toy trucks when he can. We’re all thinking of you and we wish you a speedy recovery, Seth.

My kid’s books Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog stress the importance of teamwork. Hattie and her animal friends raise money for charity in Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes. They also work together to help horses overcome fears. In the newest of my kid’s books, Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog, Hattie’s pals are very sad so she develops a plan to cheer them up. You’ll be surprised by her idea! I hope these stories are among your favorite kid’s books. Have you read them? What did you think?
