Shelly Penn teaches importance of uniqueness and individuality in The Geoma Tree.
Parkersburg, IA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Who better to author a childrens book than a busy mother-of-three and in-home childcare provider?
The Geoma Tree is an uplifting, educational childrens book, intended to both educate children on geometric shapes and the importance of uniqueness, individuality and acceptance of others. For toddlers through children in elementary school, the books universal message will appeal to and benefit any child.
With colorful, whimsical illustrations, The Geoma Tree follows Circle, a melancholy shape left feeling a little insecure alongside the other shapes. Over time, Geoma Tree demonstrates the beauty in differences, teaching Circle that every shape is to be celebrated and adored.
Penn hopes the book can be used to establish a dialogue with children on the importance of self-esteem, inclusion of others, overcoming jealousy and teaching acceptance of all.
A teacher, parent, or grandparent could easily help a child relate the story to his own life, thus teaching a personal lesson in tandem with an educational lesson, Penn said.
