Raise Your Thoughts
My name is Janice Clark. I am a retired elementary school teacher, residing in Brockton, Massachusetts. I have been enjoying my hobby of writing for and about children for many years.
I am excited that my new book, Jake and the Magic Pen is now in print along with Roland Faissett and the Wizards of Wee Ville.
Jake and the Magic Pen addresses bullying which has become a bigger problem with the advancement of media technology. This instance, however, takes place in a classroom. And the bullying is resolved through kindness from an unusual source.
Roland Faissett and The Wizards of Wee Villeaddresses cancer. His message is "Believe". Cancer has become such a sad part of too many households, but it is real and needs to be addressed.
Roland has Leukemia and is finishing his chemo treatments as school opens.His classmates demonstrate the curiosity, acceptance, and compassion that are natural traits of our wonderful young population. It is not a medical account of the illness. It's about kids being kids.
All my books have threads of kindness woven into the stories because I agree with the following quote:
"There are three things that are important in life. The first one is kindness. The second one is kindness. The third one is kindness." - William James
