Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world leader in supported self-publishing services, is highlighting AuthorHouse authors Andy and Bernice Tate in its Real Authors, Real Impact campaign.

The retired South Carolina couple has self-published a series of children’s books through AuthorHouse that deal with issues important to children, including bullying, diversity and understanding the consequences of actions. The authors intended for the books, which retell stories Andy shared with their grown son Dr. Derek Tate throughout his childhood, to make reading fun.

“Storybooks-4-Kids is indeed our own, an independent publishing social innovation project,” commented Andy Tate. “We passionately believe children need to be read to as infants, to read well by school age. Our stated goal is to place bright, cheerful, easy-to-read original storybooks, accompanied with imaginative illustrations in the lives of children. The reason is to enhance the development of reading to learn, through the magic of our Storybooks-4-Kids project.”

The Tates’ ongoing Storybooks-4-Kids project addresses themes of multiculturalism, empowerment, acceptance, anti-bullying, food-choice awareness and the power of diversity for children. The pair has presented their book to local elementary school classes and become popular with media in the Southeast, appearing on radio, television and in print publications to spread their messages.
