New Orleans, LA, July 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Inspired by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, Deandrea Green has written the second in a series of books to get children moving. Her first book, Skating on a Rainy Day began her quest to inform and educate parents about the need of physical activity for children. Skating on a Rainy Day is the story of a mother’s promise to her daughter. Despite the weather she finds a way to teach her to skate. The Who Dat Movers: Jump Team is based in New Orleans and the story of a group of girls who through perseverance jump their way to victory. Deandrea looks at old fashion, cost effective ways to get children active. She is reminded of her youth and the games she played with her siblings and friends, and also understands the essential need for activity as well as nutrition in children’s lives. Deandrea has a great blog, Dee Green Thoughts, where you’ll find tips on getting children active, read about a New Orleans public school whose curriculum includes jumping rope and more about the First Lady’s “Let’s move campaign.” Deandrea is a New Orleans born and raised young woman who has learned to live out loud.
Deandrea has been invited to participate in Clarence Nero’s 2nd Annual Bayou Soul Writers & Reader’s Conference. She will be one of the featured authors at the Youth Program Breakout Session on the Louisiana Author Panel.
