In these Aesopic-inspired modern allegories, Book #1 The Butter Monster: The Most Endearing Cad Ever to Warm the Cockles of Your Heart is the first in a series of five [and still counting] humorous, 1.5-2K-word-picture-book stories, which allow for the soaring imaginations of young readers (7-9), while increasing their vocabulary skills beyond their reading grade level.
Too many of today's youth experience under-achieving reading levels, a lack of effective grammatical and syntactical analyses, the inability to utilize proper punctuation skills, and a limited command of a varied vocabulary. Such experiences impair our youth to think critically and creatively, thus limiting the success of their futures. Great Wonders And Miracles [GWAM]'s stories are designed to help address these concerns.
As an ordained minister and counselor for over thirty years, the author's training and experience have shown him that healthy habits occur over time in stages, beginning in childhood. Thus, each story's concluding epimythium adds a dimension of wisdom that matures a young reader's moral compass.
