Veteran author and child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. James Schaller, announced that he should have ten picture books available for $1.00 each by the end on June 2005. They will be offered as simple downloads from his web site.
While most picture books are very heavy on the pocket book and after one or two readings, just sit around and gather mold and dust mites, these are highly economical. All ten are offered for only ten dollars -- the price of one regular picture book in a store.
All these books are highly playful, silly and vibrant. They face issues common to all children, and always leave them with a smile, hope and the belief they are loved and cared for. They see people and animals in ways that are educational, but also ultimately hopeful and fun.
They are just perfect for that 5 minute quality time tuck in or rainy weekend day, when you want to share a fun moment that does not last an hour.
The books are illustrated by a wide range of artists, from New York book designers to local youth with massive artistic gifting.
And all have been "field tested" on real children to make sure each passes the "delighted child" test!
Here is one that is completed. With this book we found that the kids each liked a different cover, so we give them both to you!
