ROCKFORD, Ill. (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
Using a mysterious candy corn stealing bat and a plan for catching the thief, Ruth Brügger teaches children about counting and facing their fears in her new book, “Count Candy Corn.”
“Count Candy Corn” opens the door to Halloween and shares the legend of the Count Candy Corn Bat. With help from his mother, a young boy named Maddix creates a plan to test the legend and catch the thieving Count Candy Corn Bat. This process teaches Maddix about numbers, problem solving, bravery and imagination.
Brügger has always had a passion for writing, but never thought of writing a children’s book until her great-great nephew, Maddix, expressed a fear of Halloween. In order to help him, she wrote “Count Candy Corn.”
“My own great-great nephew struggled with the scary parts of Halloween,” Brügger said. “I thought other children could benefit from overcoming their fears as well.”
Brügger hopes that after reading her book, children will be able to tackle their fears, whatever they may be. Perfect for educators and parents looking to teach their children about self-confidence and problem solving, “Count Candy Corn” is an entertaining Halloween read that takes this holiday from spooky to fun.
