With the help of non-negotiable expectations and a little guidance, we are all able to transform from standing on the sidelines to head of the line.

A true story of transformation, “The Girl Who Tamed Her Wonder Worm” (published by AuthorHouse) by Rose Brenda Lavis, which is getting a new marketing push, takes multiple memories from Lavis’ childhood and merges them with her daughter’s experiences to create a powerful tale of survival and how to conquer a fear she believes is shared by so many children – acceptance.

“This is the true story of my daughter, Jill, and her epic journey as she discovers how one thought can change everything,” says Lavis.

When 4-year-old Jill found herself in new surroundings – playschool – she began to worry and this worry lead to a wonder worm appearing in her tummy. Though she wanted to quit on the first day of school, Jill found solace and encouragement through her mother. This, in turn, helps little Jill go through a metamorphosis that will see her finding her place in preschool – a place she never realized was there until she changed the way she was thinking. As she progresses, so does the wonder worm, and, in the end, both become beautiful, magic butterflies – one socially and the other literally.

Written in a bright, colorful way, “The Girl Who Tamed Her Wonder Worm” helps children, parents and educators understand that what they think about themselves creates themselves. “All that is required to transform fear into joy, to change the worm into a butterfly, is simply to change your mind,” says Lavis. “With the help of non-negotiable expectations and a little guidance, we are all able to transform from standing on the sidelines to head of the line.”
