FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 9, 2015
(CLOVIS, California)— Heritage Builders Publishing has announced that it will publish the “Embarrassing to the Max” children’s series by award-winning illustrator Scott Nelson. The first book in the series, “Dozi the Alligator Finds a Family,” will be released on March 15, 2015.Everyone has to deal with embarrassing moments at some point in their lives. To children though these moments may shape how they’re perceived for years to come. From bullying situations to lack of confidence, the ramifications of a bad day at school, on the field or even in the home can have profound consequences.
The Embarrassing to the Max series showcases awkward body function stories and tries to help young readers see that subjects such as pants wetting, nose picking and throwing up happen to everyone at some point in their lives.
In “My Tummy Disaster,” our main hero loses his breakfast as the class chorus sings “My Country Tis of Thee.” Will concealing the mess with a Tuba be enough or will the “Crazy Barfing Kid” now need to skip school forever? The readers will be surprised when they see who the class actually roots for.
This book, the first of a multi-volume series, uses humor to show kids how to avoid feeling shame and humiliation for natural acts that happen to all of us some time or another. The self-confidence gained is a natural defense against verbal bullying.
“My Tummy Disaster” addresses embarrassing moments and bullying through humor, creating a valuable learning experience for young readers and their parents alike.
