About the Book

Twas the Eve before Christmas
And all through the condo
Not a soul was stirring,
But a kitten named Mambo.

He was prowling and meowing
And licking his fur.
He needed a present—
A gift from him to her.

See, Mambo was rescued
By this kind-hearted soul;
And he wanted to give back
To make his heart whole…

But what gift can a rescue kitty like Mambo give to the angel who brought him in from the cold? Find out in this delightfully-rhyming children’s tale about a prancing kitten, his friend Clancy the dog, and the animal lover who shared her all with them.ISBN-13: 978-1-946044-36-5

How HumaneEducator.com Uses WCY Children’s Books in Its Educational Programs

Debbie and book

Humane Educator Debbie Gladwin with “Slow Moe”, by April Pedersen

Who Chains You Books loves to feature humane educators using our books in their programs. We asked Debbie Gladwin, founder of HumaneEducator.com, about her work for the animals and children, and how she finds our books useful. Here’s what she told us:

As a Certified Humane Education Specialist, I am always on the hunt for books with a humane education theme. At HumaneEducator.com, we often use animal themed literature. There is a unique bond between young people and animals that helps us to communicate empathy, compassion and respect for other living beings.

In our Bella’s Backyard Buddies program, we use many of the books published by Who Chains You Publishing. Books like Happy Dog: From Chained to Cherished, Sloe Moe: A Snail Tale and Doodle Bugs Second Chance are a part or our literature curriculum. They are perfect for read-alouds and compassion circle discussions. We have created art projects, writing activities, puzzles and games…all based on these animal-themed books.

We’ve created a body of curriculum based in part on the books and use them in a variety of environments like classrooms, after school programs, and service learning projects. These books make it easy for us to create activities that meet state academic standards and can easily be blended into an existing curriculum.

They are also great for family time reading at home. I’ve been known to read these books to my own rescue dogs!

What I love about Who Chains You Books as part of our program is watching the faces of the audience of young people light up as they listen to the stories of compassion and caring. They want to help.

allbooks-lo

We love that the heroes and heroines of these inspirational books are compassionate and respectful activists who are role models for the young people we teach. We also love that the stories are about all kinds of animals…dogs, cats, horses…but goats, pigs, rats, mice, snails and birds too!

At HumaneEducator.com, we strive to provide young people with opportunities to develop critical thinking skills that will help them to make informed lifestyle choices. We help them to understand critical issues like animal abuse in a way that will help them to see that they can be a part of the solution instead of the problem.

Located in central Oklahoma, our mission is to empower students to understand the effect that their actions have on other people, animals and the environment. We give them the tools and skills they’ll need to make responsible lifestyle choices. In addition, we provide parent/caregiver training that empowers them to help the children in their lives to live with kindness, empathy and compassion. We partner with schools and individual educators to enable them to incorporate humane education principles into their existing academic curriculum and school culture.

Currently, we have three projects—Bella’s Backyard Buddies is our humane education literacy program. HumaneEducator.com is our character education program and BullyCrisis.com is our program designed to empower kids to be upstanders against bullying.

When I am not creating curriculum, searching for new ideas or attending events, I love spending time with my husband and three rescue fur babies. Charlie and Bella are my two senior dogs and Catboy is my senior cat who were all rescued while we were living in Southern California. My personal life goal is to partner with people, especially children, to help them to discover their own skills and talents and how they can use them to live socially responsible lives.

If you are interested in further information about our humane education programs, please contact us at any one of our websites: HumanEducator.com, BellasBackyardBuddies.com or BullyCrisis.com.

—Debbie Gladwin, founder, humaneeducator.com

P.S. We LOVE working with humane educators! We’ve created some amazing books—featuring animals and issues that haven’t been addressed elsewhere—but we partner with those doing the work in the field to bring the animals’ voices to the children. That’s why we always offer wholesale discounts for humane educators and nonprofits. Check out our program for humane educators here, http://whochainsyou.com/humane-ed.html, and drop us a line if you have other ideas for projects we can do together at info@whochainsyou.com.

Now You Can Get a Second Helping of Happy Ending Rescue Stories from Who Chains You Books.

Praise for the first dose of Rescue Smiles:

FIVE STARS. Rescue Smiles is a truly great, feel good book. The collection of short stories are all well done and pulled me right in. I really enjoyed hearing these various real-life tales about good-hearted people taking in and often saving animals in great need. Each story moves swiftly and they are all tightly written. Several times I was quite surprised at how deeply they moved me.

“These days it seems like there’s bad news everywhere. This book directly counteracts all that. It’s all good news. It gave me a lift just reading it. If you’re an animal lover, you will devour this book. I did and I’ve no doubt that I’ll read it again.”—Scott, July 29, 2018, Amazon.com

The heart of the animal rescue world lies in its stories—of freedom, of love, and of sacrifice by those who not only acknowledge but embrace the human-animal bond and its wondrous gifts.

In our second rescue story compilation, Who Chains You Books is pleased to share a glimpse into the emotional lives of animal rescuers and the living beings they hold close. Join us for another helping of heartwarming anecdotes, as Clancy triumphs, Tallulah escapes, Alex survives, and a host of other animals steal our hearts.

Through these stories, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look into the relationships between rescuers and not only dogs and cats, but horses, cows, pigs, birds, and even a ferret, in this delightful second installment of Rescue Smiles.

We hope you’re as captivated by the kinship between human and animal as we are. With contributions by: Darla Purgason, Heather Leughmyer, Laurie Lee, Sidney DuBois, Ron Smith, Brece Clark, Thalia Dunn, Stephen Plyler, Paul Ernest, Susan Hartland, Melody Whitworth, Rhi Banks, Johnna L.

About the Editors:

Heather Leughmyer is the author of Adopting Adele, Brave Benny, Courage Conner, A Rat’s Guide to Owning a Human, and If Your Tears Were Human, and co-editor of Rescue Smiles. She is also the founder of Happy Endings Rat Rescue, and a graduate of Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in Writing and Linguistics.

Writing has been a passion of hers for as long as she has advocated for animals.

She lives in Columbia City, Indiana, with her husband, daughter, and several animal companions.

Tamira Thayne is the author of The Wrath of Dog, The King’s Tether, The Knight’s Chain, The Curse of Cur (forthcoming), Smidgey Pidgey’s Predicament, Happy Dog Coloring Book, Foster Doggie Insanity, and Capitol in Chains, and the co-editor of Unchain My Heart and Rescue Smiles.

Tamira pioneered the anti-tethering movement in America, forming and leading the nonprofit Dogs Deserve Better for 13 years. During her time on the front lines of animal activism and rescue she took on plenty of bad guys (often failing miserably); her swan song culminated in the purchase and transformation of Michael Vick’s dogfighting compound to a chained-dog rescue and rehabilitation center.

Tamira’s spent 878 hours chained to a doghouse on behalf of the voiceless in front of state capitol buildings nationwide, and worked with her daughter to take on a school system’s cat dissection program, garnering over 100,000 signatures against the practice.

In 2016 she founded Who Chains You, publishing books by and for animal activists and rescuers.

About the Book:

kittycoverlo-drop“Look who’s coming down the hall! It’s Stubby Nubby, her tail so small!”

Most of us have experienced being made fun of or called names that hurt our feelings. Meet Ethel Kitty who doesn’t like being called names—like “Stubby Nubby”—just because she has a smaller tail than the other cats at school. Read along in this tale of tails as the new cat in town helps Ethel realize she is special despite her “shortcomings” and teaches her how to stand up to bullies.

In its third edition, author Sandra Biersdorfer adds playful song lyrics and talks about the real Ethel who inspired the tale. Perfect for ages 7 and up, The Kitty with the Itty-Bitty Tail will delight readers big and small, and fit flawlessly into school humane education and bullying programs.

tamijewelonyxloWho Chains You Books started with the vision of one woman who understood how hard it was for animal rescuers and activists to get published by mainstream publishers—yet she also knew these folks had an important message to share with the world.

Tamira Thayne had left the nonprofit she founded, Dogs Deserve Better, the previous spring, and was looking for another way to make a difference for animals. Her background in the publishing industry gave her the knowledge to bring animal-related books to the market, and in the summer of 2016 she took the plunge, creating Who Chains You Publishing and putting out her first books.

To date, the company has published 29 animal-related books, with two more slated for release this month. Our Crescent Renewal Imprint, which focuses on family, education, and the environment, has released a further six books.

We hope you’ll join us in the fun this month as we celebrate both our 2nd Anniversary and support Back to School programs. Take the first step by joining us on our Facebook page today.
