Sharon Bastin lives in West Palm Beach, Florida with her husband, Brian and three daughters, Ashley, Amanda and Amber. She has a degree in Business Administration from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. Sharon wrote, illustrated and published this book and has several books planned for the future.Review:
"Ms. Bastin has written this book for very small children learning to accept new friends, deal with rejection and appreciate the differences surrounding them in school, and in the larger community. It is illustrated with a friendly rock and the big oak tree that learns to share his space. Together they create a comfortable and restful place in the park where visitors can sit and read and enjoy the great outdoors. Large print and brief text using strong verbs and colorful adjectives makes this first book user-friendly. We have gladly accepted this book as an addition to our Lower School library. We hope that this local author will continue to write for young readers." Susan Duncan, Head Librarian Sherral Hornaday, Pre-K-3rd grade librarian The Benjamin School North Palm Beach, FL --Susan Duncan, Head Librarian
"The Oak Tree and The Rock is a beautiful story of sharing and cooperation. The book captures young readers with its vivid yet tranquil illustrations and inspirational message. The Oak Tree overcomes his loneliness and makes lifelong friends. As an educator, I recommend this story to be included in your child s library. The Oak Tree and the Rock story and underlying lessons (are) included in our Peter Pan Preschool Character Education Program." Special thanks to Sharon Bastin, talented author/illustrator, and mother of three wonderful girls who inspire her stories. We look forward to future books. Kimberly M.
