Corinth, MS, April 3, 2011 - Now your child can “Laugh and Learn” again with Seamus as the gentle sheepdog guides them through more of the many challenges of growing up. The new Seamus the Sheltie to the Rescue is the third book in the National award-winning “Seamus the Sheltie” series.
It’s not easy being a kid. There are lots of things to know and learn, and some of them are scary. It’s not easy being a parent, either. Sometimes it’s hard to find the right words to explain a situation, share our values, or comfort our kids. This award-winning book helps both parents and children to talk about important subjects with the assistance of an unusual guide – a Shetland sheepdog named Seamus.
In Seamus the Sheltie to the Rescue, the lovable sheepdog both learns and teaches valuable lessons about trust, compassion, being born different and kindness. But wisely, the book doesn’t preach. Kids can identify with Seamus’ feelings – his exhilaration at playing in the snow, his compassion when confronted by a lost or injured animal, or his fear of going to (shudder) the vet. This author does not flinch when it comes to dealing with difficult issues such as animal cruelty, adoption, loss of family members, how to handle bullies, fear of doctors, the true meaning of Christmas, the value of animal rescue shelters, and the joy of experiencing the simple things in life like watching the clouds and playing in the snow.
