Daddy, Daughter Star in New Picture Book for Children by Cheryl Kula

coverKula

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Play Day with Daddy” by Cheryl Kula.

A young girl and her father enjoy spending time together when her mother goes to work in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When a young girl’s mother leaves for work Friday, it’s not cause for sadness because that’s the day the girl and her dad get to spend together. This new children’s book tells what happens during their day, from start to finish. The story ends at the best part of the day – when Mommy comes home and all three sit down at the dinner table to talk about what happened while they were apart.

“Play Day with Daddy” features typical activities for families: a pancake breakfast, foraging in the garden for fruits and vegetables, having a picnic lunch and reading stories about dragons and knights. It’s a fun way for the girl and her father to spend the day, as well as their cat, who insists on tagging along. Colorful cartoon illustrations by Karl Trolenberg fit perfectly with Cheryl Kula’s gentle rhyming story. The book’s easy prose works equally well as a read-aloud story or one children can tackle themselves.

This is the first children’s book for author Cheryl Kula, who has two daughters with her husband, Ted. They live in a mountainous area of West Virginia. Illustrator Karl Trolenberg, a graduate of the East Carolina School of Art, has worked in the arts for 17 years. He and his wife, Kathryn, have two sons. They live in Virginia.

Ellen Gilman Shares New Memoir with Plenty of Heart

coverGilman

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Mollie’s Tail” To Mollie with Love” by Ellen Gilman.

Saving a 4-year-old sheltie from being euthanized changes a family’s life forever in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When Sherry Neville (a.k.a. Ellen Gilman) answers a phone call from the family’s veterinarian, she has no idea it will change her life. The vet hopes Sherry will adopt a 4-year-old sheltie whose owners want to euthanize for “not listening.” Although Sherry says no, she stops by the vet’s office anyway to look at the dog. One look at the beautiful black and white dog’s intense gaze has her hooked. This new book, based on real-life events, shares what the family gave Mollie and what she gave them.

“Mollie’s Tail: To Mollie with Love” includes surprises, adventures and anecdotes to warm the heart. It takes Mollie a long time to settle in with the Nevilles even though she seemed to choose them.  They realize her previous owners didn’t treat her right. Eventually Mollie enjoys walks, barking at wildlife and – most of all – spending time with the family simply sitting. As time goes on, Mollie will perform one more feat – opening the Nevilles’ hearts to adopt other shelties. Readers of all ages will be charmed by this tale about an extraordinary dog and her extraordinary family.

Author Ellen Gilman spent 10 years in retail after graduating from the University of Maryland. She and her husband, Steven, have a family-run business that she has helped with for the past 15 years. They have two rescued shelties, Annie and Luke, adopted after Mollie passed away.
