Richard McEwan Pens Book to Teach Children About Caring for Foster AnimalsRichard McEwan Pens Book to Teach Children About Caring for Foster Animals
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2014

Author Richard McEwan says that if you teach children how to care for pets, they also learn also how to care for people. That's one of reasons why he recently wrote The Children's book 'The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples - The Rescue' newly released by Halo Publishing International. Inspired to write because of his grandchildren's love of books and he and his wife's love of fostering animals, the book introduces children to fostering a pet and tells a story of the rescue of a lost puppy. 'I hope that when a child sees a stray dog or cat, that they think about the story and how the puppy, Mr. Pupples, was found and saved,' says McEwan. 'Once a child finds a stray animal, their next step is to immediately get an adult involved.' An avid dog-lover who with his wife, Christie, has fostered about 50 dogs over a period of 5 years, McEwan is retired and cherishes their two dogs that they had originally fostered, and a cat that had been a stray kitten. He says fostering animals from your local animal shelter or SPCA is a good way to keep them from being euthanized. 'Pets are great companions. Not only are they fun to be with, they can help you get exercise,' say McEwan who enjoys taking his dogs for walks with his wife. 'And, who loves you more than your dog?' 'I think children will love this beautifully illustrated story with a great message about pet care,' said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina. You can purchase 'The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples - The Rescue' at http://www.HaloPublishing.com. It sells for $16.95. McEwan says he has written two more children's books with the same two characters - Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples. They will be released at a later date. Biography: Richard McEwan retired to the Outer Banks of North Carolina after a long career in sales, marketing and advertising. He lives with his wife, Christie, and their two dogs, Buddy and River, one cat named Oyster and many photos of foster dogs. Together, McEwan and his wife, have three children and four grandchildren.

The Fun eReader Platform and Individual Book Receive AwardsThe Fun eReader Platform and Individual Book Receive Awards
by BWW News Desk - Dec 15, 2014

The Fun eReader eBook reading platform by Arbordale Publishing has received the Quality Excellence Design seal of approval in the 2014 Digital Book Awards and 'Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue' won a Children's eBook award for non-fiction. The QED certification is considered the 'Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval' for eBooks and enhanced eBooks. Digital Book World, the publishing industry authority on eBooks, developed the 13 point inspection that each eBook must pass to receive this seal. This seal signifies that the Fun eReader platform and eBook design is of a high quality and perfect for any type of device. The individual eBook 'Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue,' by Jennifer Keats Curtis and photography provided by John Gomes, was recognized with a bronze award for non-fiction in a new digital book awards program, Children's eBook Awards. This awards program recognizes excellence in eBooks for both content and design in many categories. This is the first year for The Children's eBook Awards which was started to celebrate the greatest accomplishments in the growing field of digital books. 'Kali's Story' is one of the 107 titles offered by Arbordale Publishing on the Fun eReader platform. The innovative design is built for children to read or listen to any book in either English or Spanish. Like the print versions, each eBook includes the Arbordale signature For Creative Minds section of fun facts and activities for children, parents and educators to dive deeper into the book's subject. The platform allows for easy access to the additional resources provided by Arbordale and with the Fun eReader app available on iTunes or Google play children can access their library from any device. For schools, the Fun eReader is available by subscription, and classroom teachers have ready-made teaching activities, quizzes and usage tracking within the platform. About Arbordale Publishing Arbordale Publishing provides fun-to-read picture book stories with underlying, but subtle, science and math themes to 'light the fire' of inquisitiveness. The books have a 'cuddle factor' so that parents can comfortably read the books to children on their lap or at bedtime. Each book includes 3-6 pages of 'For Creative Minds' in the back of each book with easy-to-understand activities specifically designed so that parents and adults can become the 'teachers' even when they don't remember the underlying subject. The parents are given the tools they need to answer the 'why' questions. The activities are also designed to engage children and are so much more than a list of 'fun facts.' Activities may include matching, sequencing, and true/false questions to develop critical thinking skills. These activities make each book so much more than a picture book...the books become tools to get readers (The Children and the adults in their lives) excited about the underlying subjects and to become a 'launch pad' for more discussions and learning.

by Buster Spiller - Dec 15, 2014

But even this self-professed Grinch has a soft spot so when my favorite children's Christmas tale The Little Drummer Boy comes on, I'm fixed in front of the TV like I was as a young boy and often find myself crying because the message in the story transcends a religious and biblical one; it is a story about the best in humanity. That childlike fascination and sentiment was evoked recently during Teco Theatrical Productions updated and modern version of Langstan Hughes The Black Nativity, produced annually by the company. I have seen many versions of this show, and nearly every one staged by Teco, and I can say with utter confidence this is by far the BEST Nativity I have ever witnessed. It's that good! (more...)

Out of the eerily emptied Terezin Ghetto established by the Nazis near Prague as a 'Jewish City' - which was in reality a way station to the death camps - a remarkable discovery was made at the close of World War II. The Children of Terezin, in the face of unspeakable horror and at constant risk of execution, built a thriving world of creativity and beauty.Words on a page can have deep meaning, but actually meeting people about whom those words were written can create memories that last a lifetime. Terezin's prisoners included more than 15,000 children. Fewer than 100 survived. The cast met one of them, along with another survivor at SelfHelp Community Services , and toured the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. (more...)

BWW Reviews:  Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROLBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Joseph Baker - Dec 12, 2014

As my hand was turning to mincemeat while writing personal notes in Christmas card after Christmas card, I persevered, knowing that at the end of my travails there would be a reward: A much anticipated performance of Theatre Memphis' annual 'gift' to Memphis, Charles Dickens' venerable A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I must admit: I have not attended every performance of that classic since its inception. I have, however, infrequently stopped to hang my wreath at its door; and I've seen some fine 'Ebeneezers' over the years (I recall a former teaching colleague, Tom Ford, offering a tight, clipped interpretation and, of course, one of the best and most frequent of the actors donning those tattered gloves, Memphis acting favorite Barry Fuller). As I wrote card after card, I began to think about all the other interpretations of A CHRISTMAS CAROL that I have encountered through the years - Seymour Hicks; Reginald Owen (in the role MGM intended for an ailing Lionel Barrymore, who had become famous for his radio performance and who would have, no doubt, been superior; a not-all-that-bad consolation prize was his equally tight-fisted 'Mr. Potter' in Frank Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE); Orson Welles (in a Mercury Theatre radio performance); Sir Ralph Richardson (a beautiful audio recording); Alastair Sim (in the early 1950's British film and offering my favorite interpretation of the role; Danny Peary, in his fascinating ALTERNATE OSCARS, selects him as Best Actor for that performance); and, certainly, George C. Scott, in what was considered to be the version to end all versions. (And does anyone recall Jim Backus' 'Mr. Magoo' in a delightful animated musical television special back in the 1960's?)
