Book contract signed!!!
I’m excited to announce Dr Sara and I signed our contract with Magination Press for our next book. Thank you. They have been great champions of our work, and champions for children’s mental health and well-being. I’m not sure I can reveal the working title or cover yet, so I’ve cleverly hidden it underneath this bottle of wine and a cat. We’ve been saving this bottle of wine for 1.5 years. It’s from Cakebread Cellars and one of the best I’ve ever had.
Our next book — FEEL YOUR FEELINGS — will be published by Magination Press.
Feel your feelings introduces children to basic emotions with fun poems that they can act out from head to toe. They will learn that emotions are our friends. Some emotions show us what we love, others protect us from harm, and all of them put together, like colors on an artist’s palette, paint a beautiful picture of life.
The book is for a younger audience (Children 3–7), but Scott and Sara always write books that are fun, inspirational and educational for adults, too.
We can’t tell you much more than that now, but check back here. We’ll post updates about how the book is made.
One more book announcement coming soon.
Stay tuned. The book is written. This one is for adults! Scott has been working on it off and on for 14 years! He’s looking for an agent now.
The sequel to Dream It! How to plan your dream.
UPDATE: The good news is that “Dream It!” is finished and available for purchase. But some good news/bad news. The good news is that we will be posting new pages for Map It! on Dreamaplay so that you can teach your kids how to plan their dream, and give us feedback on the material. The bad news, unfortunately, is that our publisher has postponed the sequel. With the pandemic and schools closing our book hasn’t been able to be used in Cincinnati Public Schools as planned. It has been a tough time for us all. But, this is our love and we will persevere.
Everything you need to turn dreams into reality!
Below is a first peek at the trilogy of books that we just submitted to our publisher Magination Press. It teaches kids how to dream and how to turn dreams into reality. Our first book, “Dream It!” teaches kids how to find their passion and set a feasible goal. The upcoming book, “Map It!” teaches kids how to plan their dream using the 5 W’s. And the final book, “Play It!” teaches kids how to live their dream and overcome obstacles like fear and doubt.
