New Picture Book, "Oliverís Hunger Dragon," Explores the Effect of Hunger on a Child
Vancouver, WA, August 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- This fully illustrated picture book, aimed at young readers from age 5 to 8 years of age, highlights the problem of hunger. According to Feeding America 15.9 million American children live in"food insecure households." Children who face hunger experience tiredness, a lack of concentration, poor problem solving skills, and are often too embarrassed to ask for help. "Oliver’s Hunger Dragon" draws attention to these children by depicting hunger as a dragon who follows Oliver everywhere, and how letting people know about Hunger can bring about a change for the better.
Author, Sherry Alexander, hopes this book will bring awareness to the plight of children across America. A portion of all proceeds for this book will go to the Clark County WA Food Bank, Feeding America, and the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division to support their efforts to feed kids.
Illustrated by Amy Rottinger, this book is released through Halo International Publishing as both an ebook and a print book to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other ebook retailers.
