New Children’s Book Series – Berry Patch Friends

Russ Hovendick shares information on his new book I Have a Secret with Sarah Blakely.

This is the first book in the new Berry Patch Friends series. I Have a Secret was written to help parents convey the message of “I Love You” to their children, which is lacking in so many homes today. It’s so rewarding as an author, to hear comments back from readers stating that they absolutely love this book. Typical comments are that “It is adorable”, “Oh How Fun” or that “It brought a tear to my eye” and this excites me, realizing that it is connecting with my intended audience. I trust that you will enjoy this book, as well as future books in the series.

This fun book takes you on a journey through the berry patch with mother bear and her little cub. The book begins with the mother telling her cub that she has a secret. The anticipation of the secret paired with cute pictures immediately grabs the attention of readers.
