Multi-Award Winning Children's Book Author Dr Nicole Announces Latest Book In Felix And Booboo Series, 'Special Food For Sam (Allergies)'

Dr. Nicole is a multi-award winning best-selling author, based in Quebec. She writes children’s books that educate, inspire and teach valuable life lessons.

Multi-award-winning children's book author Dr. Nicole has announced the release of a new book in the Felix and Booboo Series, 'Special Food For Sam (Allergies)'. The new book is one of a series of eight books that address medical issues and make them understandable for young children. The goal is to increase the child's understanding of his body and to help eliminate fear of diseases. This series is also available in French (Félix et Boubou) in paperback, Kindle and PDF versions.

In this book, Sam is allergic to eggs, nuts and cow milk. Felix bakes special cookies for Sam. His magical medical instruments helps him prevent the eggs, the nuts and the cow milk from jumping into the cookie dough. That is a big challenge for Felix. This book will help children understand the issues surrounding allergies and will help them understand that suffering from allergies is normal for many people and is no cause for alarm. The book includes a quiz at the end to further the understanding of the child in regards to allergies.

"My true intentions regarding writing this series are to inspire children to read, to set their imaginations free and to encourage good decision-making regarding health, safety and critical thinking," Dr. Nicole stated. " Writing children’s books is a way for me to give back and be a positive resource to the community. It is a way that I can positively express myself while having some fun and at the same time be a positive role model for both children and caregivers. I hope that my books inspire children to set their minds free and work to make the world a better place."

In addition to allergies, other subjects covered in the series include gastroenteritis, broken bones, head lice, otitis, the human body, vaccinations and chickenpox. All of the books in the series can be used by educators and medical professionals to help kids understand that these types of conditions are normal and are not to be feared or avoided.

In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through the parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking. If a child can master the art of critical thinking, nearly everything else falls into place.

Dr. Nicole’s books have won numerous international awards. A full listing of the awards can be found on her website.

Dr. Nicole Allergies Book Cover'Special Food for Sam' has received Readers’ Favorite 5 stars. A reviewer wrote, "I chose this book to review because it touched on something in my life. My nephew is deathly allergic to nuts and he had a few very close calls because people in his school did not understand about allergies. This book does an excellent job of relating this important topic to youngsters in a way that is fun and engaging. The pictures in the book are beautifully done and partner with the written words perfectly. I also really liked the quiz provided at the end that summarizes the main points in the book. This will make it a good tool in the classroom for teachers as well as at home for parents. Well done."

Dr. Nicole also received recognition as one of Quebec's Top 10 Women by the Maman Dion Foundation. The Maman Dion foundation was founded by Thérèse Tanguay-Dion, known as Maman Dion, a television personality and the Céline Dion’s mother. The Maman Dion Foundation is an educational foundation that provides support to underprivileged children in the form of clothing, eyewear and school supplies.

Dr. Nicole has sold over 150,000 books in her career. She is highly regarded for her work with children’s books and a health guide for families. Her goals are to create in children a love for reading and to create interaction and engagement.

Psychologist And Selfie Filmmaker Barbara Becker Holstein Addresses Teens Girls Coming Of Age In A World Filled With Guns, Violence, Drugs, Suicide And Negative Media Portrayals

Dr. Holstein, a psychologist/filmmaker and originator of a unique Selfie Film concept, writes award-winning books, plays and produces short films that offer solutions to problems that impact today's teens and tweens

Our children face issues today we could never have imagined just a few short years ago. They must deal with guns in schools and violence on an unimaginable scale. There is rampant drug use and the peer pressure that comes from the resulting culture. Suicides have occurred in children as young as 8 years of age. Social media has created an alternate reality that adults simply don't understand. And, to top it all off, we have recently become sharply aware of how films and the media perceive the role of women in society. What are we, as rational, thinking, responsible adult parents to do? Psychologist and Selfie Film maker Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein has the answer.

We reach them where they are, using tools they understand.

"As a positive psychologist turned filmmaker I spend lots of my time dealing with the range of complex issues facing kids and their parents today," Dr Holstein stated. "Yes, there is lots of good news, especially for girls and women of all ages.  The tides are turning with events like the #Metoo movement and talented women, such as Greta Gerwin, finally getting a chance to direct big screen films and to be nominated for awards, including the Oscars.  However, on the home front, where kids and teens actually live and have to make sense of life, things are complicated to stay the least.  How does a child process a school gunfire situation where over 20 kindergarten children are slain?  How does a child process a situation where a girl of 12 attempts to kill a friend, also 12? How do kids follow the news and process people in high office willing to send to foreign lands over a million youngsters and young adults who came here as babies and/or children and know no other world?"

"Each situation is different, but all reflect a break-down of compassion and caring for others that is so necessary both for the ethics of a society and for the good mental health of its citizens."

"When I wrote 'The Truth' and then 'Secrets' I explained on You Tube that I chose to create a 'girl' and make her real via her intimate diary, so as to help kids and their parents better understand the emotions and situations of growing up. Both books have opened a window of intimacy into the behaviors and feelings of girls, tweens and young teens for years.  However, I came to realize that even more was needed in today's world. She was now 'coming of age' in a different world than ten years ago, a world that could best be demonstrated and felt by the audience via film that utilizes a film crew and an actress playing the 'girl' who films many of her scenes via her smart phone."

"Since 'she' (she has no name, as she represents all girls) was in her first film 'The Truth, a Short Film' she has grown older year by year, as we all do. Megan Brown who stared as the 'Girl' in several of the previous films, now 15, plays once again the 'girl' in my newest film 'Conflict'. In 'Conflict' she faces problems and dilemmas that parallel so much of the stress of today's world. 'Conflict' is my first film where no solution is supplied.  That's because I want the audience to feel the 'girl's' pain and think about solutions.  They are out there, we just have to have the courage as a society to grab on to them and make them work."

For more information go to Selfiesasfilm.com.

Dr. Holstein is now accepting requests to post selfie films on a website devoted to selfie films, SelfieFilmmakers.com. The selfie filmmakers can submit their films for consideration at the site.

The focus of the site is to honor different facets of the Selfie Film phenomenon. It is a place to explore what makes these films so inviting psychologically and emotionally. The site will host a variety of people who are the creators of this new wave of filmmaking. All ages covering a variety of topics. From the depths of our souls to the lightest touch of humor, a new wave of filmmaker explore being human, sharing thoughts and feelings in new ways via smart phones.

Holstein's short films have won numerous awards and accolades. 'The Truth, A Short Film' premiered at the Garden State Film Festival and its song, 'On The Edge of Something New' won the award as the best pop song of 2016. The short two minute film by Dr. Holstein, 'The Truth, A Short Short Film', premiered at FilmOneFest in July of 2016. The film was chosen as an Official Selection in the Chain Film Festival held in Manhattan on August 13, 2016. Also selected by the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival (JCITFF), and shown on November 5, 2016 at the Jersey City International Television and Film Festival. 'The Truth, A Short Film' was officially selected for the Golden Door International Film Festival in September 2016.  It was shown at The Grove Film Festival in Jersey City on May 21, 2017, the shorter version was shown at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey. 'The Truth, A Short Film' was an official selection for the virtual Female Filmmakers Film Festival. There was a public voting of favorite films and 'The Truth' came in 12th of 92 films.  'The Truth, A Short Film' was an Official Selection at the Roselle Park Shorts Film Festival on September 25, 2017.

'Secrets, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film' by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein was recently nominated for the Alice Guy-Blache Women in Cinema Award at the Golden Door International Film Festival on October 7, 2017 in Jersey City.  Nominees were announced at the Awards Night at The Lankmark Loew's Jersey Theatre .

'Falling in Love, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film, is detailed in a new ebook: 'A Selfie Film - Falling In Love' by Dr. Holstein. This ebook presents issues and stories behind the creation of Dr. Holstein's "selfie films", which utilize cutting edge New Media technology. Topics and questions for discussion can be used by a parent and a child, or a group of hundreds as universal subjects of growing up and handling tough issues are presented. 

'Falling in Love'  was an official selection at the Brightside Tavern Film Festival in Jersey City in early March, nominated for several awards, including 'Best Experimental Film' and 'Best New Jersey Short'.  It came in second place for 'Best New Jersey Short'.

'Falling in Love' was an official selection also at The Hang On To Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park on May 21, 2017.  It was nominated for several awards, including Best Experimental Film, and Best Concept Film.  Megan Brown, a high school freshman, who stars in 'Falling in Love' received the 'Rising Star Award' for her acting performance in 'Falling in Love' at this Festival.

Dr Holstein presented her Selfiesasfilm concept, along with her films, at the American Psychological Association meetings in early August 2017 at a Symposium: Novel Directions: Novel Directions: Four Practicing Psychologists' Atypical Pursuits. 

On March 27th, 2018,  Dr. Holstein is invited back to the Ocean Township Middle School Author's Day where she will have the privilege of sharing her two books, 'The Truth, Diary of a Gutsy Tween' and 'Secrets, Diary of a Gutsy Teen' along with several of her Selfie Films based on these book to the entire group of children invited to participate in Authors Day.

'Falling in Love, A Coming of Age Selfie Film' has been selected to be in the Love Shorts Film Festival on the web, at The Audience Awards.  This is a Festival where the audience as well as judges vote for the best films.  It will run from February 13th to February 20th. 

The Brightside Tavern Shorts Fest Film Series, taking place the first weekend in March in Jersey City has nominated 'Secrets, A Coming of Age Selfie Film' for three awards - Best Experimental Film, Best New Jersey Short and Best concept.

'Secrets' has been selected for inclusion in "Passages: Women in Transition," Women In Media - Newark's 2018 Women's History Month film festival, to be held on March 27 – April 5, 2018 at Rutgers University Newark, New Jersey, and at various satellite venues in the area.

Book Of Proverbs, Wisdom Vs Wilderness - New Christian Book Release By Multi-Award Winning Author Donna Louis

Louis' book is an in-depth study of all chapters in Proverbs 1-31. Louis will be making the book available to Christian charities and hurricane relief organizations as a fundraising tool.

Multi-award-winning author Donna Louis has announced the upcoming release of her latest Christian book, 'Book of Proverbs, Wisdom vs Wilderness'.

'Book of Proverbs – Wisdom vs. Wilderness' delves into the need for gaining greater wisdom. The primary purpose of the Book of Proverbs is to teach wisdom to everyone. The Book of Proverbs provides intellectual depth and insights and exceptional wisdom on how to live a fortunate and tranquil life by honoring and respecting God as omnipotent.

God wants us to live a life like Christ and to do what we need to aspire to have wisdom. King Solomon was the wisest man that ever lived. God gifted him with unsurpassed wisdom and it is King Solomon who is credited with writing chapters 1-29 in The Book of Proverbs.

Book of Proverbs – Wisdom vs. Wilderness discusses all chapters in Proverbs 1-31 and brings insight, clarity, and basic meaning to several verses in each chapter to solidify why wisdom is essential and mandatory in life, so readers can live a blessed life versus living a life that is destitute, empty, and obsolete.

"Wisdom in its basic form is just using common sense," Louis stated. "However, are you aware that wisdom is a gift from God. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. – James 1:5. Wisdom will keep us from many detrimental situations that can destroy us. Following the ways of wisdom helps bring us in harmony with God. Following wisdom also brings us in harmony with other people but most importantly brings us in harmony with ourselves."

The new book is scheduled for release in 2018.

Louis' first book, ‘Miracles of Direction, Miracles of Conquest, Miracles of Provision, Miracles of Purpose', explores biblical miracles that took place while Jesus was here on earth. She then references with miracles that take place on a daily basis in the modern world. She separates these miracles into four categories and presents insightful example of each type, taken directly from the Bible. She knows that miracles happen every day, even today, and offers readers a message of hope and faith.

Louis knows her subject well, as she has personally experienced three miracles. As the result of those life-altering experiences, she began an in-depth study of some of Christianity's most well-documented miracles. In her book, she attempts to expand upon and explain both the purpose and the direction of those miracles.

Donna was chosen as a winner in the 2015, 2016 and the 2017 '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' awards contest. ‘Miracles' has also received rave reviews from readers. One review called it "amazing, uplifting and inspirational". Another stated, "I was profoundly impressed by the writing."

Donna is now making her book available to both hurricane relief organizations and Christian organizations to be used as a fundraising tool. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the e-books may be donated to those organizations that qualify. Churches and other charitable organizations are welcome to contact Donna using the information below to discuss the details of the program.

Donna Louis is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at louistolouis@aol.com. More information is available at her website. ‘Miracles of Direction’ is available at online retail book outlets. More information, including information on 'Book Of Proverbs - Wisdom vs Wilderness', is available at her website at http://www.miraclebook.net.

About Donna Louis:

Donna Louis is happily married to her husband of 30 years Patrick Louis and currently resides in Florida. She lives to accomplish the task that God created her for and on a daily basis to follow Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
