Joyce M. Carpenter launches a new press campaign for “A Home for Calvin” (published by AuthorHouse), the first of a series of children’s books designed to teach young readers important life values.

First published in 2008, this book is about Calvin, a field mouse that seems to always be in trouble. He is a little clumsy and very curious. He gets in all kinds of scrapes and loses his home. Will he find a nice, safe home amid the storm?

An excerpt from the book reads:
Calvin slipped back out when everything got quiet. What‛s that smell? he wondered. He looked under the pew where the little girl was. Guess what? The little girl had left him some Cheerios to eat. Man oh man!

As Calvin looked around, he thought, Yes, I have found a new home—a nice, cozy, safe home!

“A Home for Calvin” is an inspiring tale that illustrates the importance of caring for others. To purchase a copy of the book, visit
