Heagy writes faith based, inspiring children's books that focus on issues such as bullying, teamwork, shyness, friendship and character building
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Children's book author Viki Doyle Heagy has announced the upcoming release of a new book for kids about adoption entitled 'Lucy Ladybug Becomes a Big Sister'. The release will occur in November 2018 during National Adoption Month.
In the storyline of the new book, Lucy Ladybug is excited. Her parents are adopting. Her new brothers and sisters come from Hawaii. Mr. and Mrs. Ladybug host a luau to welcome them to the forest. The new ladybug kids have shells that are a pretty purple. Their adoptive family have red shells. This blended family knows that all that matters is love.
"Parents and children will enjoy reading about how adopted kids are chosen to complete a family," Heagy stated. "Love and acceptance are key issues in this story. All colors are beautiful."
Viki believes reading to children is the best gift you can give them. It opens up a new world of adventure and knowledge. Stories should be fun and teach a lesson. A favorite quote of Viki’s is attributed to Albert Einstein. He said “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
Heagy was inspired to write children's book as her grandchildren love story time and look forward to the quality time spent with their “Kiki”. When they started pre-school, Viki realized that her granddaughters had concerns about a number of issues. In response she has produced three kids books to date:
