Dog Ear Publishing releases “Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” by Dora Asare-Morrison.

Readers learn how to incorporate foods from across Ghana while staying healthy in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

You are what you eat. That’s a sentence that appears to have become ever more important as scientists explore the link between nutrition and good health. This new book details good eating habits and the crops found across Ghana and beyond, as well as featuring the nutritional content of foods and how to plan affordable meals that taste good and maintain health.

“Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” is written for Ghanaian residents, community leaders and healthcare professionals, aimed at satisfying a hunger for information about proper nutrition to stay healthy. The author writes that in Ghana, few people can have three healthy meals a day. Instead, most struggle to create one decent meal, a light breakfast and snack. Climate change affecting crop production and the expansion of urban sprawl into former farmland has reduced the amount of food produced and driven up prices. Creating healthy meals on a low budget becomes a matter of survival.

Author Dora Asare-Morrison, an experienced dietitian, gives a brief lesson on nutrition, followed by sections on food groups such as dairy, legumes, fruits, meats, vegetables and grains, as well as planning meals for specific times of day, snacks and healthy drinks. A glossary, easy-to-understand charts and reference list offer further resources for those who want to delve more deeply into this important topic.

Dora Asare-Morrison was raised in Ghana and has experience with cuisine from Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the United States. She earned a bachelor’s degree in clinical dietetics and nutrition from the University of Pittsburgh. Asare-Morrison has more than 20 years of clinical experience in acute care, sub-acute care and rehabilitation hospitals. She is a registered dietitian nutritionist, licenses dietitian in Texas, certified nutrition support dietitian and certified nutrition support clinician. She also has experience in intensive care, medical/surgical units, neurology intensive care and outpatient dialysis centers across the United States. Asare-Morrison serves as a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, affiliated with the Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Practice Group.

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.

Girl Learns Valuable Lesson about How to Be Cool in New Book by Robert Degnan

coverDegnan

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Fife’s Lessons: The Tao of Cool” by Robert Degnan.

A young girl learns exactly what it takes to be cool when she helps a classmate in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Being considered cool is more than a state of mind at an elementary school – it’s a matter of survival. Kids can be cruel to each other. Fifer enjoys being a cool kid at her school. Everyone thinks her parents are cool, and who wouldn’t  – her dad plays in a band and her mom is hip beyond compare! But life isn’t just about being cool, as this new book reveals, and being cool is more than knowing the latest dance or driving in an earth-friendly sports car. How people treat each other is the way to be cool.

 “Fife’s Lessons: The Tao of Cool” tells the story of Fifer and the new kid at her school, Jimmy. Kids are spreading mean rumors about him – like eating worms for breakfast and being an alien – and nobody wants to sit by him. His appearance doesn’t help. Jimmy wears crooked glasses, his clothes don’t fit and he never talks. One day Fifer must be his partner, and boy is she embarrassed. Class does not go well, but the trouble doesn’t stop there.

Her parents are just as disappointed in Fifer’s behavior with Jimmy as her teacher is. Through this, they remind Fifer that it was just a year ago that she was the lonely new girl at school. Fifer vows to have a new attitude about Jimmy, and once she recognizes his true talent, things turn around for the lonely boy. Expressive illustrations by Jason Robert LeClair pair seamlessly with the story’s message about treating others with kindness – the true way to be cool.

Author Robert Degnan, an elementary school teacher with a daughter, knows how kids think. Robert, who also works as a professional musician, founded Rhythmic Journey, leading drum circles in schools, businesses and the community to promote the inner child in everyone. He and his wife and daughter live in Rhode Island.

Illustrator Jason Robert LeClair has created work for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Pawtucket Public Library and RI Library Association. He also has designed sets and served as a theatrical director and painter.
