Children's author Jill Warren shows youngsters the power of giving and teaches them
that any day can be a lucky day in this uplifting debut tale about a homeless man living alone in a big city whose life suddenly is changed forever.
New York Mills, NY - July 15, 2011 - Jill Warren announces the release of Abe's Lucky
Day. A perkily inspirational work for children ages five to eight, Warren's debut book is a story of sharing and a lesson in how giving to others can help create more lucky days for all.
Abe is a homeless man who at night sleeps all alone in the alley behind a bakery in a
large noisy city. He has few possessions and no comforts, and winter is on its way. In fact, it seems he has nothing at all to offer another human being.
What he does have, however, is a selfless nature and a propensity for kindness to others, even those he perceives as needier than he.
On what turns out to be Abe's lucky day, an event occurs that changes his life forever and teaches young listeners and readers that there is a power in giving to others which transcends the material and creates a kind of "luck" for all.
Abe's Lucky Day is a tale well timed for this era when so many are finding it
increasingly hard to keep up with their growing expenses and their shrinking incomes.
Oddly, despite these widespread economic difficulties, our society still largely defines success in terms of wealth, possessions and status.
Warren's tale about Abe provides a refreshing look for today's children at the greater values of life.
The book's valuable message is that, while these tough economic times prompt everyone
to hold on all the tighter to what they have, there is more truth in giving what we can to those who have less -- just as the remarkable, homeless Abe does.
By doing that, Warren suggests, we may all have more lucky days.
