Dog Ear Publishing releases “First Friend, Best Friend” by Leslie Rohrbacker.

Twin boys show why they are best friends in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Being a twin means having a friend even before birth. This new book takes readers on a fanciful journey narrated by one of the twins, describing life inside his mother and what happens once they reach the outside world. Born one minute apart, the two boys showcase the special bond that exists between twins.

“First Friend, Best Friend,” inspired by the real-life journey of the author and her twin sons, relays a series of adventures the boys experience from birth to their first day of school. Although they are twins, they aren’t identical. One has brown eyes while the other has blue, one is a bit smaller than the other, and one likes to sleep in while the other gets up early. Despite their differences, the twins share the most wonderful gift of all: Being each other’s first friend and best friend. Colorful watercolor illustrations by Katy Betz provide a delightful accompaniment to this charming story of brotherly love.

This is the first book for author Leslie Rohrbacker, a published blogger who also is a lawyer and executive. She and her husband live in northern New Jersey with their twin boys, who inspired Rohrbacker to write the book. Katy Betz is an illustration professor and has created work for books, magazines and exhibits.

Heavenly Messages Star in Calf’s Adventure; Betty Page and Phil Wallace Release New Children’s Book

coverWallage-Page

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Calf and the Stars” by Betty Page, illustrated by Phil Wallace.

A little calf finds some unexpected friends when he becomes trapped in a ravine in this new picture book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

It’s not easy being on your own, especially when you’re young. A little calf with a tendency to wander off gets more than he bargained for when a fast-moving storm leaves him trapped in a ravine all alone. As the story goes in this new children’s book, even the rancher can’t retrieve the scared calf because of the deep snow. Luckily, he’s got some friends in the sky who keep his hope alive.

“The Calf and the Stars” provides a beautiful lesson about the power of friendship, even when it’s between stars and a little calf. When he begins to cry, the stars spell out encouraging messages so the little calf knows he’s not alone. Told in simple rhymes designed for reading aloud, this delightful children’s book offers a heartwarming story that charms adults and children alike. The gentle watercolor illustrations pair beautifully with the story, offering a reminder that friendship can be found in unlikely places.

Author Betty Page and illustrator Phil Wallace recently teamed up for the children’s book “It’s Neat to Eat.” Page, a freelance writer who used the name Betty Russell, wrote human interest articles for the New York Times, Seventeen Magazine and local newspapers. Wallace, whose cartoons have appeared in trade magazines such as Advertising Age and Broadcast Magazine, also illustrated “Tiger Tales,” a book about the Flying Tigers in World War II.

Experience Delightful Day at the Beach in New Children’s Book Released by ZD Gallup

coverGallup

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Nap Time at the Beach” by ZD Gallup.

A child enjoys the simple pleasures of the beach in this new illustrated book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Beaches are wonderful places to explore and provide endless hours of entertainment – and a special place to take a nap. In this charming new children’s book, author ZD Gallup uses pen and ink to describe the magical world of sand and surf. With nothing more than a pail, shovel and dump truck, a small child and their caregiver explore the beach.

 “Nap Time at the Beach” offers an up-close and personal look at the beach, where children can dig and cover up with cool moist sand as the waves say, woosh, wamp, woosh. Wading, climbing up sand dunes and watching birds scamper up and down the beach makes kids sleepy, and a beach tent provides an inviting sanctuary for a nap. Evoking a simpler time, Gallup’s gentle prose and striking illustrations add up to a beautifully told tale of a day at the beach.

Author and illustrator ZD Gallup has a bachelor’s degree in drawing and printmaking and works in mixed media and fiber in her design studio. Gallup, who is a grandmother, has spent lots of time on beaches, in spite of living in Girdwood, Alaska.
