“The moral of the story is that everything will work out in time,” she says. “It is a message that adults can convey to their young audience.”

In “Everybody” (published by Trafford Publishing), Brenda Slack’s first book in her series of children’s storybooks about a young boy named Conner, young readers learn that even in the face of hardships, they can remain positive and hopeful for better things. Originally released in 2010, “Everybody” is getting a revived marketing campaign in 2013.

“Everybody” is about a young boy that had to leave his friends and the neighborhood that he grew up in because his father had to go work in another town. It was hard for Conner to make friends in the new neighborhood, but, in the meantime, he got a puppy whom he called Everybody. Everybody was lost one day, and when Conner went calling for him, everybody who heard him came to see why he was calling for them. Soon Conner had lots of friends again.

An excerpt from “Everybody”:

“Conner’s parents put him to bed that night and his mother read him a story while his father listened. Conner was quiet and not listening. He was thinking about what it would be like to live somewhere else. Would he make new friends? Would he be able to have fun playing at his new home?

He asked his mom a lot of questions and she ended up saying, ‘Everything will work out over time Conner.’ Finally, Conner fell asleep.”

Slack believes that many young children will relate to the book because of economic shifts that cause disruptions in family life. “The moral of the story is that everything will work out in time,” she says. “It is a message that adults can convey to their young audience.”
