Every child has a special stuffed animal who shares the joys and scares of life with them. For the Little Boy in Diane Page's new children's book Bobbs and the Little Boy it was Bobbs. The Little Boy begged his mother to buy this stuffed creature who he names Bobbs and who becomes his best friend. Bobbs asks the Little Boy questions much like children ask their parents, like why some children are afraid of clowns or loud thunderstorms. And the Little Boy answers in the way that only a Little Boy can.

About the Author:

Diane Page started her career in education in the late 1960 s as a classroom teacher, an elementary assistant principal, and an elementary school principal. Later she piloted a pre-kindergarten program with the Tupelo Public School District and was on faculty with the University of Mississippi. Her first publication, The Paraeducator in the Elementary School Classroom, was the first work of its kind written especially for assistant teachers. For nine years, before retiring on June 30th, 2010, she was the Education Coordinator at the Lee County Juvenile Center. Beyond her own accomplishments, she is very proud of her two grown children, Elizabeth and Leighton, and their great spouses Andy Tyer and Katherine Page. But admits their children, her grandchildren, Alston, Avery, and Eliza Tyer and Zachary and Natalie Page, are the most amazing blessings in her life. Her husband, Fred Page, owns a successful Certified Public Accountant practice and they attend All Saints Episcopal Church in Tupelo, Mississippi. Her first children s book, Bobbs and the Little Boy, sends a resoundingly clear message of normalcy to all children who fear such things as clowns, scary animals, and thunderstorms. The little boy, ever so lovingly, explains as children grow and mature, these fears, for the most part, will go away, especially with the friendship of a small, stuffed creature.
