Jake the Growling Dog – Book Signing and storytime (Open to the Public)

June 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC-4

PLEASE JOIN US IN CELEBRATING OUR LOCAL FRIENDS, SAMANTHA SHANNON AND KERRIE JOYCE, ON THE RELEASE OF THEIR FIRST CHILDREN’S BOOK

Jake the Growling Dog: A Children’s Book about the Power of Kindness, Celebrating Diversity, and Friendship by local author Samantha Shannon and local artist Kerrie Joyce.

Jake’s voice has a different sound.
Other critters won’t come around.
But he is sweet and only wants to play.
Will others start to see him that way?

Follow Jake, a sweet, kind, and misunderstood dog as he tries to make friends despite his differences.

Meet forest critters of all kinds while getting to know Jake. Jake loves to swim, hike, and play, but when he realizes he’s lonely a true friend comes to his aid. Soon others find friendship and understanding filling this tale with heart and hope.

Includes a loving-kindness and mindfulness activity for families, counselors, and schools

Along with Jake’s story, this picture book also includes a loving-kindness activity to promote character education, mindfulness, and gratitude. The activity is for families, schools, and counselors to reduce stress and bring families closer together while encouraging acts of kindness, forgiveness, and gratitude.

A Positive Story to Promote Empathy

Jake’s story encourages children to be kind, appreciate nature, find the good in all things with the power of gratitude, and to accept others who are different from them in a subtle, sweet, and impactful way.
