Life with Bobby and Bonnie are lessons about life, using the charming characters of bunny twins. Their adventures and misadventures, along with their family and friends help them to learn about the unconditional love of Jesus Christ, the hope and forgiveness that can be found in Him. Experiences with young adults in an alternative school setting inspired the life lessons of the bunnies. The writer believes that just as academic success is promoted by early and deliberate intervention, so are social and spiritual growth. She hopes addressing concerns of students considered to be “at-risk” through the universality of animal characters will provide intervention that will encourage some of our youngest and most precious natural resource to live lives of love, hope and forgiveness. Author Bio: Alice Walters has been blessed by her diverse experiences working with and learning from children of all ages for over thirty years. Summer camp to summer school, preschool through adult learners, Alice learned early on that not only can all children (and adults) learn, they can also teach. Alice, her husband and their family, live in the Midwest, but she never forgets her Southern upbringing. They enjoy traveling and fine arts (although they don’t always agree on genre or quality). After serving as paraprofessional and administrative assistant in her small, local school district, Alice returned to college when her son began kindergarten. After completing three degrees and holding a variety of positions in education, Alice thinks she’s done about everything in public education except coach a sport or drive a bus (for which, we are all grateful). Her most memorable experiences are the ones when her neediest students still found something they could teach or share with their classmates and her.
“Stories the made me smile!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Colleen Grantham
I love how the short stories in this book use the darling personalities of two rambunctious twin bunnies to teach meaningful life lessons through typical childhood experiences. The bunnies learn valuable lessons about kindness, fairness, friendship, and much more. These are wonderful stories to share with children or just to read as an adult to put a smile on your face.
About the Author
Alice Walters feels blessed by diverse experiences working with and learning from children of all ages for over thirty years. Most of Alice’s professional development came from her students and colleagues in the urban school district where she served for 10 years before retiring. Working with students who faced poverty, neglect, abuse and death on a daily basis, taught her far more than any college course or professional workshop. Alice came to realize that not only can all children (and adults) learn, they can also teach. She credits her pupils and colleagues with teaching her that curriculum and caring can cohabit in a classroom. Alice’s most memorable experiences are ones when her neediest students were empowered to teach and share with their classmates, and with her.
