FED Publishing Releases New Book, “Fables for Wisdom Seekers Young and Old” by Barbara A. Meyers

Fables for Wisdom Seekers Young and Old, by Barbara A. Meyers, shares with us stories that help children deal with many of today’s issues.

Henniker, NH, USA — Barbara A. Meyers’s Fables for Wisdom Seekers Young and Old helps you guide children through many of today’s difficult issues.

Following in the legacy of teaching stories, Fables for Wisdom Seekers Young and Old invites caring adults and children ages 6-11 to explore together ideas about building self-esteem, the challenges of being a member of a family, school, and community, as well as being a citizen of the world.

Each fable is accompanied by a series of suggested talking points to support adults in deepening the story and moving it from the realm of fantasy to the everyday world of the child and reader. These conversations join the natural instincts of children – their curiosity, intuitive knowing, zest for learning, open-hearted caring, innate wisdom and joy in playing – with the wisdom adults have gained through experience. Together children and adults build a bridge to a future in which our ways of being reflect what is fair and just for all who share this planet.

“I really loved this book and can see so many possibilities of integrating it in my classroom.” ~Rogene Carter

Fangs, Claws, and Camouflage: Zombie Problems, by Frances Applequist, introduces the seductive vampire leader Avianna and her fight against evil.

Raleigh, NC, USA — Frances Applequist’s Fangs, Claws, and Camouflage: Zombie Problems brings together vampires, werewolves, the US Marines, the militia and a powerful witch in a battle to save a town overrun by zombies.

The fight begins eight-hundred years earlier with the brave child who became a willful adult, and then the powerful and seductive vampire leader. While other humans hide, two frightened, but stubborn, coeds brave terrifying zombie hordes to document the truth.

One of the ironies of Frances Applequist’s life is that her short stories were published before she took her first college class, before she became a writing tutor, before she earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in English Literature, and before she became immersed in college-level teaching. With her husband’s support and her children’s encouragement, she balances her love for family, her love for teaching, and her love for writing.

“Fangs, Claws & Camouflage is an incredible story of supernatural creatures like Avianna and her companions who come to the aid of the humanity against hordes of beings bent on their destruction. A must read!!!” ~Mary Hartshorn (5 Star Review)

“Applequist’s seemingly unlimited knowledge of military maneuvers and terminology make this an interesting read for the male audience while it has romance and a foreign influence for the female readers.” ~E.C. (5 Star Review)

“The section of the book that described the actual zombie battle was a page turner…” ~AC
