Denver, CO, March 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Ivet Graham-Morgan’s children’s story, The Yellow Hummer, published by Outskirts Press, counteracts the trend toward self-absorption in today’s society by showing how a four year old boy overcomes his own loss from a broken Christmas present and selflessly comforts his grandmother, who accidentally had damaged the yellow Hummer toy.
Set in a non-traditional home of a son, a working mother, a grandmother and no father, The Yellow Hummer tells the story of four-year-old Jordan, whose grandmother accidentally ruins his bright new Christmas toy. After crying himself to sleep that night, cuddling the damaged toy, he awakes to go and find his grandmother and to show her the empathy, respect, buoyancy and love that he knows will help lift the remorse she feels.
Young Jordan is able to look past himself as he realizes his grandmother’s feelings are more important than his yellow Hummer, a realization too rare, author Graham-Morgan notes, in today’s society of self-absorbed, materialistic Bernie Madoffs.
This charmingly illustrated, full color book is not just a Christmas story by circumstance; it also transcends the materiality of that season and conveys to its young readers and listeners the truly selfless spirit at the heart of that holiday.
“In a society dominated by self-centeredness, we need to help our children develop positive character traits,” says author Ivet Graham-Morgan.
The Yellow Hummer does that.
