Dandelion’s Dream

Written by Heather Leughmyer
Illustrated by April Pedersen

Sweet little Dandelion lived all alone; her bed was a barrel, her companion, a bone. The soft green grass had been slowly replaced; leaving dirt behind in the path that she paced.

In the daytime she’d wait while she watched passing cars. In the darkness she’d wish on all of the stars. In the winter she’d shiver; no escape from the cold. With no shield from the sun, summers got old.

She yearned for a family and a nice, cozy bed; a scratch on the belly, a pat on the head. She dreamed of the day when SHE’D be the one, alongside a jogger for a brisk morning run.

There was only one thing that brought Dandelion joy: a redheaded, freckle-faced, 8-year-old boy…

Could a little boy be Dandelion’s hero? Find out in this lyrical rhyming story from author Heather Leughmyer, part of her Kindness to Animals Series. Perfect for ages 5 and up, and excellent for both humane education and library and family story time.

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

humaneed-lo

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.

Doodle Bug’s Second Chance

The Second Chance Series, Vol. 3

Written by Brandy Herr
Illustrated by Tamira Thayne

Doodle Bug huddled with her sisters on the cold concrete floor. They didn’t know where they were, but they knew they weren’t at home.

“Why are we here?” Doodle Bug whimpered. “Don’t they want us anymore?”

Suddenly, the light in the hallway changed as the front door opened. Doodle Bug and her sisters crammed their faces against the chain link of the kennel, desperate to see what was happening. A woman with kind eyes stopped in front of their cage, smiling sweetly down at the three sisters. Their tails began to thump…

Will Doodle Bug and her sisters get the happily-ever-after they hope for? Find out in Doodle Bug’s Second Chance, Vol. 3 of The Second Chance Series.

Based on a true story, Doodle Bug’s Second Chance is perfect for kids young and old. Who Chains You Publishing is proud to release children’s books that are fun, educational, and stand tall as a voice for the animals.

Why is a Pup Named Muffin Seeing her Shadow in New Children’s Book?

Muffin'sshadowcover-lo

New Release!
Why is a Pup Named Muffin Suddenly Seeing Her Shadow Everywhere? Find Out in Muffin’s Shadow: A Muffin “Tail”

by Laura W. Eckroat
Illustrated by Greg White

Muffin was enjoying the peace and quiet of her yard when Mom and Dad excitedly called out to her. “Muffin, let’s go for a ride!” The little family drove and drove for what seemed like years of Muffin’s doggie life. Where were they taking her?

When Dad pulled into the parking lot, Muffin became a little nervous, because this was somewhere new. The smells were not familiar: peanut butter, apple, stuffed doggie toys . . . but other funky smells too. The place was big, like a giant maze, and her eyes hadn’t adjusted to the bright lights.

Then suddenly, she saw it, for the very first time . . . her SHADOW!

It seemed to follow her everywhere. She kept moving, but the shadow haunted her. What was the shadow, and will Muffin get free of it? Read along with Muffin’s Shadow: A Muffin “Tail” to find out more. Just right for ages 5-8, the book is wonderful for classroom and humane education, too.

“Laura Eckroat wrote the perfect book to teach our children about the joy and love that comes from pet adoption. Muffin’s Shadow will take young readers on an enjoyable journey that is full of fun and wonder.”—Jamie Dougherty, Founder of Offleashapparel.com

whatsbeendonelo

Just because something’s always been done a certain way, doesn’t mean that’s how it should be done. One of the excuses often heard for dog chaining is “That’s how we’ve always done it.” Even if that statement is true, it doesn’t make it right. Dogs belong inside the home, with the family.

About the Novelette:

kingstethercoverlodropDiscover the roots of the Chained Gods Series in this 6,000 word prequel story to the paranormal world of 17-year-old Baylee and her crew.

In a rare moment of inactivity, the dog rested his head on his front paws. The thick logging chain weighed heavily across his body as he pulled his back legs from beneath the oppressive steel. His eyelids drooped, and even though his feral mind urged him to remain vigilant, told him he was in constant danger, sleep had its way with him anyway.
With sleep came relief.

In the waking state his mind knew only bloodlust and revenge, his body hunger and thirst, and his heart pain and sorrow. In slumber his consciousness freed itself from its bonds, and he revisited an immortal life once known—only to lose the beloved memories upon reawakening.

The ultimate cruelty.

He dreamt of a woman. It couldn’t be just any woman; according to the Prophetess, he would know her when he saw her. His brain, his heart, his mind—they all called out for her, whispering of bonds and mating rituals and a shared future that was theirs and theirs alone.

A kick to the ribs lurched him from the dream, and the woman slipped away from him, again…Grab The King’s Tether to read more and start your Chained Gods Series adventure today!

About the Book:

wrathcover-lodropAn animal activist teenager finds out there’s more to the chained dog next door than meets the eye in The Wrath of Dog…

The hairy beast growled and lunged at Baylee, his rusted logging chain straining to break—like it did every morning she cut down his back alley.

She hadn’t dubbed him “The Wrath of Dog” for nothin’.

She’s vowed that someday she’ll free Wrath and they’ll rise up and smite his obviously nasty owner. For today, though, she just needs to get past him without dying and make it the two blocks to class before the bell rings and she has another detention headed her way.

Wrath’s plight is soon forgotten when her refusal to dissect a kitty earns her another trip to Principal Baird’s office. Things go from bad to worse, and before long she’s hearing voices in her head, decamping the school premises with a band of un-zombie cats, and learning that The Wrath of Dog is a lot more than she bargained for.

Next thing she knows she’s avoiding her best friend, learning she’s not quite human, and taking on an unseen enemy to save the day, her family, and just maybe two worlds in the process.

Becoming an adult sure isn’t what she thought it would be…
