How Our Book Came Into Being

Someone asked how we came to write our book: "Tuvia Finds His Freedom". Great question, here is our answer.

We were pondering a recurring problem of having to rescue little animals from kids being unkind and even cruel. Knowing there are no co-incidences, we wondered what positive action we could take. I posted a question on a mothers group and had mostly negative responses. However, some mom's agreed that education was necessary, still I was left with the dilemma of how to get the message to the kids.

We considered various options and then a friend asked about one of the nature photographs I had on my website. She liked the story behind the picture and so we decided to write it in a little more detail. At first I thought of doing a blog post to help to promote our pets and nature photography, but then I showed it to my husband and he loved the idea of a book. So we got to work. 

With a love of both books and photographs, we began to improve the story I had written. My husband added and altered some of the text and then we sat down to select appropriate photographs. With my husbands wonderful computer work and a little effort our book soon began to take shape.

The photographs used in the book show the facial expressions of a special little animal. Buy the book to find out what kind of reptile he is, what kind of habitat is best suited to him and how he finds his freedom.

I hope the short story above explains how we came to write the book. If you have other questions, you are welcome to post your question in the comment section below.
