Once there was a dog named Sandy. He wasn’t very big, but he had a big bark. So much in fact, he scared everyone in the neighborhood. Every day, Sandy would bark at the least little thing, causing the people in the neighborhood to fear him and they were really starting to get annoyed . He just didn’t want to be bothered by anyone and thought if he made a lot of noise, by barking, people would leave him alone.The other dogs in the neighborhood didn’t like Sandy, because he made people fearful of them too. They weren’t like him. They were gentle and friendly and wanted to be petted now and then, but the people in the neighborhood were also scared to approach the other dogs. They thought they were also mean like Sandy.Sandy soon learned how his barking was preventing the other dogs from being noticed and loved. He began to notice how different the other dogs were and that they wanted people to know that everyone is different and that you shouldn’t base your opinion about someone through the acts of others.

SHELLY, The Large Snail

A learning experience for young children.  Teaching patience and the reason why people do what they do.

Why Is Everyone Always In A Hurry?

 

SHELLY, the snail, was very large. Actually she was larger than most snails that roamed the forest. Her size didn’t concern her, or the method of which she got around, which was gliding along on the ground at a very slow pace. She never let those things bother her, because she was able to notice beautiful trees and flowers, as she slowly moved about noticing the natural beauty of the forest.What bothered her the most, was the fact, that everyone was always in a hurry. They never seemed to have the time to stop and say ‘hello’. This made Shelly very sad and lonely. She learned that her size was not a problem, but actually something in her favor, when she was able to let others enjoy nature as she viewed it. They were thankful for her friendship and happy to be able to be her friend.

Welcome Fall

How glorious are the colors of Fall. Each leaf showing off its lively golds, reds and oranges. As they gently find their way down to the ground, we start to think of the winter that will soon be here. Out come the winter coats and boots which have been hiding in the attic all spring and summer.

Winter can be a welcoming sight for some and a depressing time for others. We look at winter as the end to all vegetation life as we have known it throughout spring and summer. However, winter can also be a refreshing time for us. A time to plan for the holidays, when families get together to celebrate. A time to reflect on the times past and think and plan for the following spring to come.

Let us rejoice as we watch the colorful variety of so many leaves as they gently fall to the ground, wishing for a wonderful holiday season ahead.

Happy Fall!

Author Writes Words of Encouragement

Jackie Photo

 

Jacqueline Coote, author/artist/illustrator, writes books to encourage women and children.

Her books for mature women, encourage them to follow the dreams they once had, and if they had been discouraged or disillusioned when young, should now go ahead and follow their passions.  Perhaps financial problems, raising a family, divorced or widowed, a woman who has reached maturity can still fulfill her desires.  No one should discourage her.

Jacqueline’s books for children, are an ideal way of teaching them to never be discouraged, to be brave and face what ever comes their way.  Whether it is fear of making new friends, fear of experiencing the inability to complete a task, problems of facing a bully, experiencing loss or perhaps moving and entering a new school, her illustrated books help children to overcome these fears in a delightful way.  Whether the child reads the book themselves or has a parent or guardian read it to them, the messages will come across the pages to help a child overcome obstacles they face along the way.

Jacqueline illustrates all her books and designs her own book covers from paintings she has created in the past and ones she has design for a particular book.

Her books are available in paperback as well as e-book versions.
