Within the pages of Alison Southgate’s new book, Pip's Great Lesson, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498471596; $20.99, hardcover, 9781498471602) young readers will meet Pip, a small seahorse with a very big heart. At home on the coral reef and friends with several fish, a sea cucumber, some crabs and lots of other creatures, Pip watches over everyone and tries his best to be a good friend. But one day, Pip realizes something very important about himself, and he learns a GREAT lesson. This engaging story empowers and uplifts children by providing a positive, self-affirming message – a message that today's children need to hear. It encourages children to let nothing hold them back - not size, physical, emotional setbacks or anything else.

“I want children to learn that they can do anything great,” states the author. “I want bullied children to know they can stand up for themselves and for others. I want children with disabilities to know they have other special gifts they can use to do great things. I want all children to understand what it means to use their skills and talents to the fullest, for improving the lives of others.”

Alison Southgate has always loved marine life and holds an honors undergraduate degree in Zoology. She snorkeled on many reefs around the world including the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Her astute knowledge about life in the reef has come from those experiences. As a teacher, she believes that empowering children from an early age is crucial to their development of self worth and good self esteem. As a mother of two young children, she sees the great value of training them to know their strengths and use their talents for the good of others.
