In Janie’s Ever Changing World ($6.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-345-9; $4.49, eBook, 978-1-61379-414-2), a riveting new title from Xulon Press author Karen Zuehlke and illustrators Kimberly and Ruth Meeks, young Janie finds dealing with changes in her life difficult. The book, which opens in 1956, reveals how basic childhood challenges bridge the distance between generations. Ultimately, the book will ignite conversations between generations, providing connections and unexpected lessons that are both worthwhile and entertaining.
“Gaining an insight into another generation widens our horizons, alters our perspective, and often affects previous opinions,” the author says. “A fuller understanding can influence the choices we make, appreciate life, and view our world. We are letting important natural resources slip through our fingers by not engaging our older generations in meaningful conversation about our heritage. We are missing the bonds that nurture the enrichment of our lives by allowing time restraints to rob us of these moments.”
As a mother of three and a proud grandmother of eight, Zuehlke enjoys watching eager little minds grasp as much as possible. The idea for this book came when she realized how the loss of a portion of her heritage had jolted her world—and she was determined not to let the same thing happen to future generations of her family. “I realized I had taken for granted valuable resources I had at my fingertips, but not utilizing,” she explains. “This ignited my passion for creating this book.”
