Boyser Bear

release date: Nov 05, 2015
Boyser Bear
Snuggle in for the cabin adventure of Boyser Bear, Grandma Gray Bonnets and her golden retriever, Sunbeam. A read-aloud story for families who love the outdoors, nature and children. It is important that we keep closeness with our kids and what better way than to read together. Boyser Bear book is a wonderful story for children to enjoy. In writing Boyser Bear, Ames researched Black Bears and tried to keep Boyser as real as possible. Still he needed to have a personality. By watching the different bears through the years she observed that each bear is unique in deportment and appearance, and chose the best of all her wonderful bear adventures to create Boyser Bear. As for Grandma's big yellow dog, Sunbeam is based on Ames lovely golden retriever, who lived to be eleven years of age. And, yes, she really did chase a bear up a tree and she really did find raspberries for me. Review: "It follows the life of Boyser Bear, a black bear who lives in the woods near Grandma and her dog, Sunbeam. Their lives intermingle off and on as the years pass. Boyser is a curious bear, not always the best thing for him. The story begins at the beginning, and ends at the end, offering interesting information about the life of a black bear." Elizabeth Shawn, author of the Rachael Penzra mysteries and other books

The Whitest Wall

release date: Sep 01, 2008
The Whitest Wall
Synopsis: What you don't know won't hurt you is a lie.A big lie. Knowledge is still power, and the power found in these pages is undeniable. When Jodee Kulp began to explain the insidiousness of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome I did not get it. I could not sympathize. It was too much like an out of control virus that was taking over the world. But when I began reading the life stories of the characters in this book I became educated vicariously, even without knowing it. The strength of story could not be better illustrated than within these pages. Full, rich, deep personalities walk through your imagination as close as your own family as this epic-like volume clings to your heart. You will want to pick up the phone and call each one to say, "I'm right here, and I understand, or watch out." The identity of these characters becomes so personal you just know you are reading their memoirs. Fiction, as C.S. Lewis would say, adds to reality, not just describes it. It enriches daily life and irrigates the deserts of our lives. I found "Whitest Wall" so compelling I wanted to jump to the end, but so glad I didn't. Life is complex and lives are intertwined to a greater degree than we think. We tend to be myopic, critical, judgmental, and basically self-absorbed, or is that just me? Jodee Kulp is so adept at casting the players in Whitest Wall and so passionate a story teller you will look at your neighbor through different eyes than ever before. I believe there are many books in the book, I trust at least there are many more books coming from Jodee. Mac McConnell, author, "Forever Changed", "Bozra"
