Teddy Bear Helps on the Farm by The Children of Appalachia with Martin & Delia Wach and Jason S. Lynch, 8.5 x 11, PB, 64 pages, color illustrations, ISBN: 0929915739
Teddy Bear Helps on the Farm is a unique collection of short stories and activities written by the children of Appalachia to inspire others. This inaugural edition will be introduced at the Bob Evans Farm Festival 2007. The project symbolizes the power of children to impact their community and inspire others to lead successful and generous lives. This book reminds us everyone has potential—no matter their abilities. The book is intended to be for children and their families to explore and engage in activities together and have fun coloring and reading. The process of watching the children of Appalachia reflect upon what it means to help others was amazing. We hope you, too are inspired to help others in your greater community.
