San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 6, 2005
San DiegoÂLocal author, Robin Garland has just released her new gay childrenÂs book titled, These Are Happy Tears!
ÂThe premise for this book came to me via a lesbian couple who wanted to read more day to day books about gay life; plus hearing a news story about a boy and his two mothers. I decided to self-publish this book because of my desire to write the story the way I wanted to convey it,Â says Robin. ÂCompassion and understanding for others is the finest gift one can offer another and is truly the premise in my writing.Â
Chance Holloway has a class assignment for ÂShow-and-Tell,Â but what does he bring to share? A toy car? A dinosaur? No, Chance decides he would like to tell everyone about his family. This new awareness and acceptance from the community brings new friendships and a great deal of joy to a little boy and his family.
ÂThese Are Happy Tears! was a yearlong project for me. A labor of love,Â Robin said. ÂI hope young and old will enjoy reading this story and close the bookÂs cover with warmth in their hearts and a smile on their faces.Â
Other books written by Robin are a childrenÂs series she created titled: Tanglewood. The Gift is the first in this series has been rewritten with new illustrations and will be out in early 2005. This Could Be Big! is the second book in this series and will be published in 2006.
