Philadelphia, PA, July 14, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Your school nurse wasn’t just there to call your mother to come pick you up. She was an integral part of your development, helping you to understand what it meant to be safe and empowered and healthy. So it makes sense that a school nurse, drawing on her empathy for children, could one day write a book.
Rosemarie Kaupp is the author of The Amberella Tales, a series of children’s books, loosely based on the fairy tale of Cinderella. The story teaches children the values of love and security, friends, belonging and acceptance. It’s all delivered in Rosemarie’s unique, engaging writing style.
If you experience tragedy, it is possible to move forward. Your life will never be the same but it can be a good life.
“I understand children so well that it’s very easy for me to write for them,” says Rosemarie. “I understand their behavior, what they like, what they don’t like and what they’re looking for when they read.”
According to Rosemarie, children enjoy being able to relate to the challenges in their lives: making friends and feeling understood by their parents and teachers. They want to be individuals and not give in to peer pressure, but they also want to be accepted.
The first book in The Amberella Tales series, Amberella in the City, follows Amberella, a part Staffordshire terrier, part Welsh corgi puppy born in the country, who moves to the city with her new family. There she finds two stuck-up, funny poodles she must befriend and a grandmother who can understand dogs when they talk.
In the second book, Amberella and Double Double Trouble, Amberella marries a black lab named Prince. They have four precocious puppies that think obedience school is for babies. Rosemarie is currently working on a third book, Amberella and the Troublesome Nine, in which Amberella opens a doggy day care.
Rosemarie was inspired to write The Amberella Tales, after losing her son Chris when he was only 23 years old.
“I loved reading to my son when he was little and remembered how much he enjoyed it too,” recalls Rosemarie. “I wanted to retain my connection to him. As I wrote I would think to myself, ‘Chris would like this, Chris would think this is funny.’ It helped me grieve, but also to move forward. I dedicated the first book to him and included him as a character.
