The Power of Hello by Phebe Shumate-Yawson
The Power of Hello is a narrative through the eyes of Lola, a thirteen-year-old girl who was afraid to make friends but is then unexpectedly befriended by Briyah Lewis, the richest, most beautiful, and popular girl in school. It’s a story about her journey, how she goes from funny and shy then becomes strong and wise, stronger than she ever knew she could be with the wisdom of her grandmother instilled in her since her infancy. Lola and her friends go through it all together—misunderstandings that nearly end their friendship, bullying, bad hair days, and bad breath. These friends stand together with the help of one another and their parents and Lola’s guardian angel, Rokan (he’s an eagle). These friends love and protect one another through the Power of Hello.
Sweet Dreams Baby Lion by Phebe Shumate-Yawson
This book is a poem dedicated to my two children, Chara and Moema. It was written because my daughter Chara told me that I could write her the best story she had ever heard. She believed in me. And so this is a story of me wholeheartedly believing in her. The mother in this poem doesn’t want her little cub to give up on her dreams or put limitations to them. Just because you’ve never seen it happen, it doesn’t mean it can’t be done. You little cub can be the first to do it. “What is ‘it’?” you ask. “It” is anything you set your mind to.
And don’t forget to roar, little cubs! Roar!
Message from Author: I was born in New Jersey in the 80's. I love to live the simple life with simple things. Writing makes me happy. I write children's books and teen fiction stories. Each story has something from my actual life that's been twisted but the same foundation. My two children are my life and I'm better for it. For about 15 years I lived in Ghana, West Africa and learned so many things and I incorporate what I've learned into my stories
