Frickart the Different
Frickart Frog was the only frog to live on the banks of Friendly Pond, but he wished he wasn’t alone. One morning he woke up to find his wish had come true. New frogs had moved to the pond, but things didn’t go as smoothly as Frickart had hoped. The first frog Bull was very unfriendly, and the others looked at him funny. Then he met two young frogs named Fixer and Freud. Fixer told Frickart he could fix him. Of course, Frickart didn’t need to be fixed, and he explained that his ways were different. The young frogs mom came around and Frickart heard her tell them not to go near him. He was so hurt….
To learn what happens next, get your children a copy of Frickart the Different. You won’t be disappointed. This heart warming tale will instill a lesson for your children to share with others, and pass on in life. As an autism mom, with a child who’s viewed as “different,” I absolutely loved this book, as did my son.
Cry into the Wind
This book is Othello’s memoir. It tells of her upbringing in two different orphanages in the 1950’s. The deplorable circumstances, how she almost lost her life from a suicide attempt, and how she over came it all to be the woman she is today. If you’re looking for a book to inspire you, or let you know that no matter how bad life may seem, there is something we can do about it, then this book is for you. I haven’t been able to put Cry into the Wind down since I picked it up, and my sister is waiting for me to finish so she can read it too.
Where to buy
Othello (and I happen to love her name, so shame on the editor that said it was pretentious,) has written many other books! To get one of these, or one of her other titles, head to her website, or to Amazon. You can also follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
