Parenting may have gone high-tech, but Donna Douglas Walchle brings parents back to simpler times with her new, fun-filled sing-along story.
In “There’s an Owl in the Closet”, adopted siblings Davey and Lily love to play together, care for animals, and sing songs. When Davey has hit his parents’ limit for adopting pets, he hides an injured baby owl in his closet. Lily wonders what it would be like if Davey found something a little more exotic, like a lion or a dolphin.
“The book opens the door to conversations about kindness, child and pet adoption, serving those in need, multiculturalism, and, of course, the joy of having pets,” Douglas said.
In addition to her songwriting and producing credits with pop, country and Christian artists such as Usher, Faith Hill, Terri Gibbs and Babbie Mason, Douglas has produced and written two PBS television series. She is also an author, speaker and songwriting coach. Her book “God Stories (They’re So Amazing Only God Could Make Them Happen)” has sold over 15,000 copies.
Douglas was inspired to write this story by her newfound joy as “Grammy” to seven grandchildren, who she inherited when she recently married their grandfather. The children joined in the project as the voices on the sing-along song included with the book.
“When I told my five youngest grandchildren the story and sang them the sing-along song, they giggled and jumped up and down, begging me to tell the story again,” Douglas said. “Now we can bring ‘There’s an Owl in the Closet’ to the rest of the kids on the planet and all of the joy, laughter, and fun that comes along with it!”
