Two new local children’s book authors, Gina Cook and Tami Dykes will hold their first book signing this Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Everything Under the Son which is located at 407 McKinley St. in Great Bend.
Gina Cook resides in Ellinwood with her husband Dustin and their five children. She is the author of, “Just A Little Lion” a poetic adventure that not only teaches children the importance of obedience to their parents but it also demonstrates the dangers of what seems innocent, such as “little lies.” It’s a fun little read that packs life-sized lessons.
Tami resides in Great Bend with her husband Matt and their four children. She is the author of, “Being Too Small Is Big Enough” a fun filled journey children take in learning how God uses anyone that is willing to seek God’s way even if they are “too small” because with God it’s big enough. Children will learn that doing the right thing isn’t always easy but God desires us to show compassion and mercy to others regardless of who they are.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales will go to the Healing Hearts Ranch in Great Bend which is a non-profit organization that offers equine assisted counseling for individuals and families.
There will be books for sale as well as snacks for all that come by.
