I am submitting my book series, Growing with Pinto, to your agency. Growing with Pinto is a series of 5 interactive children’s stories and parents’ manual. The series is designed to help parents teach important life skills to their children with learning challenges.
Working Titles: Growing With Pinto series includes 5 books for children and a companion parents’ manual:

Content: The 5 books in the Growing With Pinto series allow children to interact with their parents so that they can learn valuable life skills such as:
- · Spelling their name
- · Remembering and reciting their address and telephone number
- · Remembering and reciting the alphabet
- · Knowing the calendar and remembering special dates
- · Creating good hygiene habits – promotes healthy eating – new food pie
- · Respecting the environment
- · Respecting others
- · Recognizing bullying
I wrote these books from my own family’s experience. I am a single parent of a learning-challenged child. When I could not find resources to assist my son, I created my own. In spite of facing many odds in the educational system my son became an Eagle Scout and recently graduated from high school. My goal is to donate a portion of proceeds from this series to a non-profit literacy organization in order to share the gift of reading. There are many low income families that need resources to teach their learning-challenged children so that they can grow up to be productive members of society.
I am also an Executive Assistant at Comcast Spotlight and volunteer at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Western PA Chapter. I was diagnosised with relapsing remitting MS in 1992 and am currently in remission.
Thank you for reading my work. Please feel free to call me on my mobile telephone at (412) 477-1733. I look forward to hearing from you.
