Description
"The Secrets of Harmony Island" tells the story of Zack, a young boy who lives on a farm in Pennsylvania. Since there are no other children nearby, he has made friends with many of the animals on the property. In the spring, when they all get together, they recount several of their past adventures and plan their next one. The story and lessons within this book are written for children between the ages of 9-12. This book provides education on the principles of decision-making through creative storytelling. Although this story is fictional, it takes place on a real farm in Pennsylvania where the author lives with her husband. While on Harmony Island, Zack and his friends learn to use the process for making decisions that the author's brother Barry F. Anderson, PhD, developed. The book also shows that just because someone doesn't look like you, doesn't mean that they can't think and reason, and that you can't be friends.
About the author
Judy Bauer is an 80 year old 1st time author. She spent nearly 30 years in management at Hewlett Packard, retiring at 55. After retiring, she started watercolor painting and within 2 years was winning awards for portraits of people she met during her travels with her husband. She has shown her work from New York to the west coast and has earned Signature membership in several watercolor societies. The decision to write came as her brother was dying of cancer. He had written a book to teach young people decision-making skills. When Judy learned he would be unable to finish the book. she offered to try to bring it to completion. She found it difficult to work with the story that he had begun, but she was inspired and started the book anew with her own story. The cover painting and the drawings inside were done by Judy.
