Fuzzy has a very bad day that keeps getting worse. He is faced with many challenges and doesn't understand why these things are happening to him. Everyone has had a bad day, week, month or even years. He will make you laugh because everyone can relate to Fuzzy in some way. Things always have a way of working out in the end and sometimes even better than it was before!
Praise for the Book"Great story about a bad day! Poor Fuzzy. Love it....funny story and ends great!" ~ Pennsylvania Reader"A great story with adorable graphics. One can't help but feel bad for the bear as he deals with one obstacle after another. My kiddo enjoyed it just as much as I did and it led to us discussing how things are rarely as bad as they seem. Can't ask for more than a book that teaches a lesson! Bought a copy to donate to her classroom too :)" ~ D, Danatoga, PA"One of the best children's stories, my daughter's love the book and I love the message that is told through the story." ~ Tbuckley"Adorable book with great illustrations giving the child a good sense of the story." ~ Jean SchinskiBook Links
About the AuthorI was born and raised in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. I currently reside in King of Prussia. I wrote the story about the Sore Prickly Bear when I was 8 years old. My teacher, Mrs. Ulrich encouraged me to write and also gave me the young author's award. I found this book after my mom passed away last year. I had a great childhood but when I wrote this book, my parents got divorced, we moved and I changed schools. A lot of changes for an 8 year old. So I guess I felt like Fuzzy.Around October 2015, I took the book into work to show my friends because this past year and a half has been very hard for me and my family. I knew when I showed my friends, they would laugh and cry because my life was again Fuzzy's. My friends, Denice, Dee, Candace, Rick, Gina, Tara, Nancy, Tamara and Gina encouraged me to publish this book. So here I am!I am now 46 years old. I have a great job, great friends, and great family. But there are still days that feel very bad and very unfair.My goal for publishing this book is to help children understand that bad things happen and bad days happen. But when we have friends and family in our life to help us laugh at ourselves, we can heal and move forward. Everyone has a bad day, week, month or even years. My dream is to share this story for children to know they are not alone and everyone has a bad day.I am so grateful for my family and friends.That'th What I Thaid was published in February 2016. Lauren Panco inspired me to write this story. It is for children who have a hard time with their R's and S's. I think many of us have! I want children to know it's ok to sound different and with practice, it changes. Don't let anyone make fun of you. We are all perfect the way we are!Author Links
