About the Book

"Clark The Shark" deals with bullying, which is a worldwide problem and can lead to negative consequences. In hopes that young children, kindergarten and pre-school will learn, before they enter an advanced school environment, to accept other children as individuals and learn from "Clark The Shark" to treat others the way they would like to be treated. The effort to "prevent", rather than "treat", should be the focus by developing cultural competency strategies, skills and programs that inclusively enhance healthy communication and relationship building. Also, creating and sustaining a healthier social climate in schools and youth-centered environments, implementing prevention and intervention strategies, which have been shown to yield tangible, lasting benefits for individuals, families, schools and communities.

About the Author

I've had the great opportunity to travel the world and observe how people treat one another, especially young children in different cultures. "Clark The Shark" was inspired when I was on a ship wreck diving trip in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Being fascinated with sharks, after returning to Miami Beach, Florida, I spoke to several shark specialists at the Marine Biologist Division of the University of Miami. I learned about the different characteristics of the many types of sharks. I chose to write a children's book about the "bull shark" to teach and entertain young children, how to treat others, in hopes it will prevent or minimize any future consequences. I was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas and currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada enjoying my retirement from luxury real estate after thirty years. I recently published "Dalton's Dream", fully illustrated, based on young children having an appreciation for their ancestors. Enjoy with each turn of the page.
