Our children are growing up in a society where school shootings occur more frequently than ever before. It’s terrifying just to hear about it, let alone experience. It fuels anxiety, leaving parents, educators and students navigating ways to cope. One solution is to be prepared, creating lockdown drills to teach children what to do in this type of traumatic event. Sometimes these drills can create fear and misconceptions for children. Having a children’s book that explains a lockdown drill to children, can be beneficial.
Have you heard about the U.S. Government Publishing Office? They create and publish children’s literature and activity books. There are a variety of topics for all readers. Some of my favorites are exploring the outdoors, building self-esteem and strengthening the family bonds.
Be sure to visit their online bookstore for Federal Publications from NASA, The National Park Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, and many more. With more than 4,000 titles and topics, you are sure to find something for everyone.
I am excited to feature a second book from children’s author, B.C.R. Fegan. I had previously shared, Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32, which is still one of my son’s favorite nightly reads. We added to his collection with, The Day That A Ran Away, which is perfect for starting his new school year.

While Mrs May is checking her students’ homework, she notices that Jet hasn’t managed to write down the letters of the alphabet. Instead of providing a familiar excuse, Jet offers Mrs May an elaborate story about how every letter happened to leave his page while he was walking to school that morning.
The Day That A Ran Away clearly and cleverly moves through the alphabet from A to Z. Each page has a number of items to find and the simple rhyme on each page will help readers remember the letter sequence. The story also touches gently on the concept of homework and the importance of making an effort.
The Day That A Ran Away will be available September 1st, 2018 in hardcover, paperback, Kindle and ePub through all major online retailers.
