Retired pre-school teacher Barbara J. Meredith knows how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle. She also knows that there is a way around being bullied. The author covers these topics in her two clever children’s books, "Daisy and Friends: How to Stay Healthy" and "Daisy and Friends: Rocky’s New Friend."

In her first book, "Daisy and Friends: How to Stay Healthy," Daisy the tiger cat and her three dog friends, Smokie, an Italian Mastiff, Rocky, a German Shepherd, and H-Dee, a Rottweiler, teach kids about the importance of being healthy and staying safe.

The animals discuss proper nutrition, and what to do when meeting a stranger, limiting TV time, playing outside, and more. Making safe and healthy decisions has never been easier!

Bullying is not exclusive to humans. In "Daisy and Friends: Rocky’s New Friend," Rocky is bullied by a smaller dog at the dog park. But Rocky is one smart German Shepherd. He knows exactly what to do to turn the bully into a friend. What is his secret?

This insightful book shows the truth about bullying and how to get along with others. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone could get along?

About the Author: Barbara J. Meredith was co-owner of Kids Express Learning Center & Daycare, LLC until her retirement in 2013. She was also the director and head teacher for 14 years. Portions of the proceeds of this book will be donated to Kitty of Angels in Coventry, Connecticut, and to Bandits Place, Inc. of Connecticut. “The animals in the "Daisy and Friends" books are my actual pets.
