Local Television Reporter Jennifer Bisram, Announces Release of Children's Book- First Day of School: Do You Want to Be My Friend?
First Day of School - Do You Want to Be My Friend?, is a children's book, that was inspired by the story of Bisram's younger sister's first day of school. In her book, Bisram explores how the main character, Star is not afraid to make new friends on her first day. Star experiences what it's like to separate from her parents for the first time, adapting to an all-new environment. Throughout the course of the day, Star has several exchanges with her classmates on the school bus, in the hallway and in the classroom. Each conversation teaches her about the many places and cultures around the world.The book's vibrant and detailed writing and illustrations highlight varying ethnicities, foods, customs and countries around the world, bringing home the point that each culture is beautiful and to be valued, and each place has something special to offer.
This is the TV reporter's first children's book, but she's always had a love for children, even spending time in a classroom as a teacher for nearly two years in NYC before she made television reporting her full-time career. Jennifer's motivation to write this book came from the desire to teach kids about friendship and diversity through storytelling. Jennifer explains, "Coming from a South American, Caribbean, Indian family, I feel it is important to know who we are, who others are, and, realize that no matter where we come from, who we pray to and what foods we eat, we are all the same."
First Day of School: Do You Want to Be My Friend?, debuts online on August 18th at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and is available now at Books & Books bookstore in Coral Gables, Florida, with distribution plans for other bookstores as well as schools.
