Even if this helps only one child from an abusive or neglectful situation, it will be well worth it.” said Dr Hope
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
Laughing Day/El Dia para Reir is an award-winning children’s storybook written in both English and Spanish. The book not only teaches children the joy in helping others but now gives them the access they might need to call for help should they or a friend suffer from child abuse.
At a Childhelp meeting this question was asked: “What else can be done to help children that are being abused?” The answer was simple: “Somehow get our 1-800-4-A-CHILD hotline phone number down to the child’s level, so they can have access to it themselves.” Dr. Hope has done just that.
Childhelp is one of the largest and oldest national, non-profit organizations dedicated to the treatment, prevention and research of child abuse and neglect. Founders, Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson have tirelessly worked for over 50 years to eradicate child abuse/neglect and have been nominated four years in a row (including this year) for the Nobel Peace prize.
Childhelp has many programs in place to help abused children. One of them is an anonymous national toll free hotline, 1-800-4-A-CHILD, that can be called if you suspect a child is being abused or neglected. Trained operators will send help and/or tell you what you should do to get immediate assistance. (http://www.childhelp.org)
Dr. Hope has dedicated a page in ten’s of thousands of children’s print storybooks designed to give children access to the help that they may need in the event that they or someone they know are suffering from child abuse. Now with the release of Laughing Day/El Dia para Reir in eBook format he has done so again. The eBook is now available at Smashwords.com in all eBook formats. Later this month it will be available directly from Barnes and Noble for the Nook and at the Apple store for the iPad and on Amazon.com for the Kindle.
In an entertaining way Dr. Hope, through his "Life Lessons" series of children’s books, inspires children to believe in themselves, teaches them the joy in helping others, the love of laughter, to always try their best and the benefits of living in the present moment. Not only will children be entertained with his storybooks but they also will have access to a phone number in case they need help or they need to help another child.
“Even if this helps only one child from an abusive or neglectful situation, it will be well worth it.” said Dr Hope.
