Judy Ann Shaw’s new book, The Adventures of Trudy and Rudy, ($10.99, paperback, 9781498439831; $5.99, e-book, 9781498439848) will inspire the adventurous side of readers, as young girls Trudy and Rudy Spencer experience and enjoy the world around them and learn trials are meant for maturation. Aided by the guidance of adults, the girls are taught about God’s protection and His comfort during challenging times in life.
“A great deal of children’s literature today is theme-driven, diaries of this kid or that kid; fights with the school bully; the teacher that the classroom makes fun of. Should there be substance or sophistication to what children read? I think so,” states the author. “Trudy and Rudy are caught up in experiences that will help shape the necessary critical judgment they will need later in life, memories that will carry them through the tough times that we all face later in life.”
A former child herself, Judy sees that children need to have fun through stories, humor and the unexpected in make-believe. Her experience in raising her children and grandchildren, as well as teaching young children in various settings, encourages her to see the benefit of stories in childhood development. “Their eyes and faces tell you if they are ‘with’ you when you are telling a story. I believe that same philosophy works in the adult mind as well. We all love a good story,” Judy concludes.
