Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 19, 2005
Publisher Blooming Tree Press of Austin, Texas announces today the September 2005 publication of "Callie and the Stepmother" by Susan A. Meyers with Illustrations by Rose Gauss. When Callie's father remarries, Callie knows exactly what her life will be like. After all, she's read all the books. She's going to be stuck cleaning floors, expected to sweep the fireplace, forced to eat poisoned apples and most likely abandoned in the woods. And there's not just the new stepmother, Pam to worry about. There's also an annoying stepbrother and an evil stepsister.
What's Daddy's Little Princess to do? In this delightful rendition of a modern day Cinderella, Callie learns not all stepmothers are wicked and every fairytale has a unique ending.
This 64 page chapter book for ages 7 & up brings the inner-workings of a blended family to life. It also addresses the underlying fears oftentimes felt when a young child must take on a new parent.
Absorbing Read . . . Recommended 5 stars!
ÂExcellent resource reading suggestion for the child therapistÂs shelf, the home pleasure reading library, the blended home library, home school and classroom reading corner.
This is a book I would use in my own classroom for a unit on family, understanding and working through fear and misunderstand. Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend.Â
