Mastic Beach, NY, October 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Children’s author, Gretchen Napolitano announced today the release of Christopher Lee and Bozzie Bear, published by Outskirts Press. Napolitano’s full color children’s story should strike a clever chord with those youngsters on the verge of their first day at school and perhaps a wee bit nervous about the prospect.
Young listeners and readers will learn that it is perfectly okay to be a little anxious about that first day of school: the big yellow bus, all those seats in the classroom, all those new faces. They’ll see that Christopher Lee has a concern, too, about his upcoming adventure in school, even if he feels he must first console his best friend and closest confidant, Bozzie Bear, who seems to have these same pre-school anxieties
Author Napolitano sets the night-before-school scene in a manner every parent will appreciate by Christopher’s continuous monologue with Bozzie Bear, the recipient of all of Christopher’s own worries about school the next day. Bozzie needs one final glass of water before bed. Christopher has to turn the lamp on for a night light so Bozzie’s not too scared to fall asleep. Yes, Christopher knows Bozzie’s a little afraid of the dark, especially this night before the first day of school.
The perky, full color illustrations and comforting text of Christopher Lee and Bozzie Bear should prove a worthwhile preparation for that first day of school and might help eliminate some of the jitters that often come with a youngster’s first step away from home and out into the world.
Christopher Lee and Bozzie Bear is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
