Positive messages are incorporated throughout the book to impact and influence readers to have confidence in themselves and compassion for others.
A very caring and kind Christian, Sytarchuk-Kent has a special place in her heart for those with special needs. Her encouraging message is reflected in the book and she hopes to empower people of all walks of life to treat others with the same compassion.
"For my son Eric, I used social stories to teach him and to communicate with him. This was the only real method for me to talk to him. He was quite brilliant really, but his mind would not permit him to move on to a different form of communication," said Sytarchuk-Kent. "Then I remembered my idea of long ago to help those visual learners be able to communicate and learn so I embarked on this project to help benefit as many people as possible."
"Din Din Book of No-Nonsense Poetry #1" has received numerous accolades including the Pacific Book Review Star which is awarded to books of excellent merit and received four stars in her Foreword Clarion Review.
"These poems provide an opportunity to enjoy a fun, rollicking, rhythmic, rhyming, laughter-filled time reading aloud with a developmentally disabled loved one" - Foreword Clarion Review.
