Author Amy Hannah’s Dog Tale Focuses on Message of Belonging
Everyone wants to belong including JoJo, the Dorky Dog and featured hero of this enchanting tale of adventure to find his forever home. The first in a series of dog tales, in this story JoJo is searching for a home to call his own and a little boy to love.
“We all want to be part of something and to feel like we belong,” said author Amy Hannah. “JoJo is the perfect misfit that everyone can love and relate to. Each story explores a different message of love, friendship, family and faith and in this first story JoJo discovers a home at Stillwater Farm.”
Amy Hannah has a special place in her heart for children of the foster care system, and she understands that feeling of needing to belong. She believes in God’s plan for us, that we are never alone; God is always there for us. Her Stillwater Adventures are a way to share this hope and love with all children.
Hannah worked for the Department of Children and Family Services for ten years and saw first-hand, the impact some single parent and split families had on children who just wanted a home; a place to feel welcome and of value. Hannah incorporates her faith in God and His message of love and family into each Stillwater Adventure. The Stillwater farm gleans its name from Psalm 23 “he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
There is something so delightfully engaging about this dorky dog. You can’t help but root for him as he explores the town and forest on his way to finding his home. The story and illustrations are classic fun and the Stillwater Adventure series is sure to be a must-have on every children’s bookshelf.
A unique feature to each of the Stillwater Farm Adventures is the “Questions to Ponder” section at the end. The questions are designed to help young readers with comprehension as well as wonderful conversation starters between parents and children.
