Bobette Stanbridge of Sheridan has written and illustrated several children’s books that she calls “The Bobette’s Bunky Series.” All books contain thoughtful affirmations on each illustration with stories that teach young children about their connection to everything. The books were written as a childs’ guide to a healthy and abundant life.
Her first book, “A Joyful Day,” is about a group of animal, tree and flower friends and one girl named Julie. All characters have special talents and abilities. Julie can read minds, so she understands and communicates with her animal and other living friends. This book teachers children the value of trees, flowers and all beings and how we are all connected with each other. It was written to assist in developing this awareness in children ages 3 to 10.
The second book in this series, “The Magic Kite,” will be released at the end of 2008. Prints are available now.
Stanbridge started illustrating these characters in the early 1970s. They were placed on quilts, pillows, T-shirts, tote bags and other items and sold in major department stores nationally. She put them aside and sold real estate to support her family. Two years ago, she began putting the illustrations into stories. She is self-published.
