LeMay Valley Friends

The Adventures of Sammy, Bart and Ruskin

The Valley of LeMay is home to many animals and friends, all of whom have experienced their own challenges and life lessons. Every day, there is something happening, always an adventure to be had!

Sammy is a young squirrel who discovers that not all negative experiences result in an entirely bad day. There is usually a silver lining!

Bart the Beaver learns the hard way the importance of team work, and that being lazy isn’t the right way to make friends or get things done!

Ruskin the Rabbit shows that, no matter how small or powerless you may feel, there may come a time when you need to be brave.

It’s not Cuz of Me

When Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) enters a home everyone is affected by it. So often children are left upset, with a lack of understanding and wondering what’s going on.

This story is for those children who have PTSD in their family, giving voice to their experiences, emotions and worries.

This book should help give a child a sense of understanding and empowerment that PTSD is “nobody’s fault,” and “it’s not cuz of me.”
