75% OF THE PUMPKIN FAMILY SALES ARE TO EDUCATORS!
FEEL THE EXCITMENT!!!
Let's be realistic. During the Halloween season, few programs are available for kids. Especially now days. For the most part we still have "The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown". A WONDERFUL STORY!
However, That's about it. How many shows for KIDS can you name that play every Halloween? NOT MANY!
Imagine a HALLMARK type film shot beautifully, in real time, only to slowly morph into a stunning animated film, teaching children about BULLYING all at the same time.
The goal for THE PUMPKIN FAMILY BOOK was to be offered to Educational institutions for the purpose of opening a dialogue between the students and their educators about Bullying. Developed as a two day assignment in class, the educator would read the book and then develop an additional conversation that affects millions of kids today through bullying. The topics include, being adopted, being accepted for who you are, being a person of color, being overweight, being too large or too small, and including the loss thru death.
The book was never intended to be sold to kids as a individual reading book with NO conversation ever with the parent or educator. There are way too many words for that, but these read words are necessary for the potential dialogue to begin between the student, other students, and the educators instructing the lesson.
Personally, I as an Author, do NOT believe a parent or Educator should leave the subject of BULLYING a subject for kids to experience and learn on their own. This topic MUST be explored in my view as a topic to be taught in all school systems.
THE PUMPKIN FAMILY BOOK does exactly that. BULLYING SHOULD BE A PART OF ALL SCHOOL SYSTEMS CURRICULUM!
