New picture book made available through Xlibris delights young readers

From the second collaboration of acclaimed children’s book author Rita Eagle, Ph.D. and illustrator Gerry B. Rasmussen comes a charming tale about Farina, a loveable little cat who suddenly faces an emotional crisis familiar to many young children.

Always loved and pampered, Farina believes she is the most special someone in her home. Until, one day, something “new and small” arrives at the house… and never goes away!!! Fearing her happy world is over, Farina “acts up” at first, and then runs away, only to return -- right away-- to bravely confront her situation. When finally she opens her heart to the newcomer, Farina finds her way back to feeling very special again….. and gains a new friend as well.    

Farina and the Baby is written especially for toddlers and young pre-schoolers in simple language they can understand. They will love the lively pictures that beautifully capture Farina’s many moods and actions. And mothers will be grateful to Farina for helping their little ones express their feelings and learn how best to cope with them. .

For eighteen months to four years.
