I am a wife and the mother of three beautiful children. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family. I also love to paint, mostly landscapes, in my spare time. I love making up stories to tell my youngest daughter and over the years I have made up quite a few stories for my two older children. I never really thought about trying to get any of my stories published until recently, after my third child was born. That is when I came up with the idea for Zebert.
Zebert The Rainbow Striped Zebra is about a young zebra who, after seeing his first rainbow, wishes that his stripes could be as bright and beautiful as the rainbow. After his wish comes true, however, Zebert's self-esteem takes a blow when his herd shuns him. Zebert must learn to embrace this change while his friends must learn to accept it.
Ever since my children were very young, I have always tried to instill in them a sense of individuality. I taught them that our differences are what make us special and should be celebrated not hidden. Acceptance, tolerance, diversity and friendship are all very important lessons for young children to learn and I hope that parents and children alike will enjoy reading about, and learning from, one little zebra's experience.
