Cleveland Heights, Ohio (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
To commemorate National Adoption Month, Minority Business Hall of Famer George C. Fraser and his sister, Emma Fraser Pendleton, former Assistant Superintendent and graduate of Harvard University, have written a ground breaking children's book based on their 14 years in foster care.
Who Would Have Thunk It!: The adventures of the Fraser foster kids, is the first major children's book written about foster care, by foster children. This unique retelling of their experiences, is autobiographical fiction of how they wished it could have been - and never really was...
Illustrated by award winning cartoonist Jerry Craft and written through the eyes of Emma, George and Joseph, Who Would Have Thunk it! tells the story of three siblings who were placed in several foster homes in the 1950’s & 1960's. The Frasers penned the book with the hopes of reinforcing moral principles, giving hope to children in the foster care system; and teaching the lesson of "Team Work Makes the Dream Work!”
“The foster care system serves a critical role in the placement of millions of needy children, and although our placements were far from ideal, many foster homes are wonderful places that nurture the emotional, academic and social development of children but are in serious need of loving and caring parents, especially for Black and Hispanic children” says George Fraser.
Children will love this heartwarming story that depicts the hardships, struggles and joys of the Fraser foster kids. Thunk it! also appeals to adults who serve in various social service capacities and empathize with children living in the foster care system.
To promote Who Would Have Thunk It! and commemorate National Adoption month (November 2012), the Frasers will embark on a 4-city promotional tour that includes live readings. Tour dates are as follows:
Thursday October 11- Brooklyn, NY
Friday October 12- Philadelphia, PA

Tuesday October 16th- Cleveland, OH
