Dallas, TX (Vocus) December 3, 2009
Meet Fay, the heroine and real life Search and Rescue dog featured in newly released "Faith in Fay: The Lost Child" the first in the "Faith in Fay" children’s book series by Sherri Watson and Paula Abney. Ambassador to Search and Rescue Dogs worldwide, Fay will tug at your heartstrings as she embarks on life saving missions.
This may be the perfect children’s book capturing all the drama, the urgency, suspense, and reward of life-saving missions. Based on true stories, authors Watson and Abney turned their passion into volunteering with search and rescue dogs to create the "Faith in Fay" series written to educate and bring awareness to the importance of child safety, the value of search and rescue dogs, the volunteers/handlers who train them and the intense mental and physical challenges both face. They must be ready on a moments notice to help others in the event of emergencies and disasters such as 9/11, the Oklahoma bombing, missing or lost children, fires, Katrina, Ike, and earthquakes. This is their gift to those who give of themselves to others.
Filled with intrigue and adventure "Faith in Fay: The Lost Child" is chock-full of important lessons sure to keep young readers turning pages. Reading to children such a success story only reinforces these principles.
“It’s an imaginative way to teach everyone about the life-saving work of rescue dogs and about the bond between handler and dog,” says Dan Hourihan, President of National Association for Search and Rescue. “There is no more rewarding task for a police officer than finding a lost child,” agrees William J. Johnson, Executive Director, National Association of Police Organizations, Inc.
