New Book Targets Anti-Bullying & Benefits Autism Research
(Sarasota, Florida) September 23, 2013 – The fourth book in the popular series The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash is now available. Author Julie Woik tells a brilliant story and teaches the life lesson of respect through main character Lilly the Lash, introducing new and endearing characters that will engage young children and their families while imparting an anti-bullying message and promoting literacy.
In The Kacklin’ Kitchen, Lilly the Lash finds herself in the quaint country village of Cobblestone Cove, where the insecure feelings of a young milk carton spawn outbursts of bullying behavior, leaving the important value of RESPECT hanging in the balance. Lilly, only ever seen by the reader, sends in a wise and compassionate cream cake to help the milk carton, and the others, understand how to successfully give and gain respect.
More than just storybooks, these beautifully illustrated works of art offer boys and girls, ages 0 – 10, an exciting adventure, hundreds of entertaining educational activities, and important life lessons to build strong self-esteem and good character.
