In the world of an eight-year old little girl, everything is new. When questions abound, answers are scarce. "Go ask your mother or father", or "Ask your teacher". When children want answers, they will find them. This is why The Little Bonnie series was created. Each book takes a normal question from a child and helps the child understand the answer from a Biblical perspective. From dealing with cancer to the death of a loved one, Little Bonnie will take you on a journey of learning and understanding while preparing your child for bed. Each story is a dialogue between Little Bonnie and Monty (the moon). This bedtime story series will not only help answer questions for children, but help them to go to sleep at night satisfied that they are learning. There are over 100 of these soon to be classics in the works and will be a favorite for a lifetime to come. Little Bonnie Meets Monty is the first in the series and as the sub-title reads, The Journey Begins!
Little Bonnie starts to notice that her best friend, Martha, is absent from school a lot and not answering the phone. When she goes to see her, her hair is falling out and everyone ignores her questions. Martha shares that she is sick and has "cancer". She wasn't quite sure what that is, but she knows she feels bad. Little Bonnie knows she must ask her new friend, Monty. Monty shares a perspective on cancer which is Biblically based and allows kids to understand a little more of what to do or expect.
Little Bonnie was created by Chuck Schermerhorn. With a world full of questions for every child, he surmised that the Little Bonnie series of books could answer them. While Chuck has written many books before this series, only one has been published; "Gabe's Place".
With the help of Gatekeeper Press Publishing, Chuck teamed with Angelina Valieva to illustrate the series. The entire production is a group effort. So, who is Little Bonnie and her friends?
