Book Image Not Available
Overview
As a Children's Book Author, I write to expand the child's knowledge in both story and words. In this story, Oscar is the manager of a farm in South Africa and goes around the farm daily trying to help settle problems that the farm animals encountered on a daily basis. In the title, the word "Obstinate" has eight synonyms and as Oscar acts each one of them out, the child is required to tell which one he is acting out. They will also learn that most words have synonyms that can bring different meanings to the single word. The beautiful illustrations in the book will also enhance the child's pleasure of going through its pages. Please read and enjoy. Thank you.
Description
As a father of ten beautiful daughters, I have encountered many fascinating stories from them as they have gone from Infancy, puberty, teen years and now as adult children. They have ranged from funny to the ridiculous and also some to the sublime. I should have been making notes all along but from all of them I'm now forced to "wing" it.
