POCKETS  -  A Book About Acceptance

Pockets is a likeable penguin, but she doesn't fit in. She doesn't speak, everything is too loud, and she looks different. She doesn't have the Emperor orange stripe along her beak, and she was born with pockets on her belly. She gets by with headphones and things she keeps in her pockets. But it is not until she discovers icePads, that she finds her voice and a way to fit into the penguin community.

POCKETS is written hoping children in grades K-2 will understand that differences are okay, and people can be appreciated for who they uniquely are.

Avhi's Flight

“This book highlights the sad realities that accompany women and their children in Nepal on a daily basis. It is an eye-opening story about how profound gender-based injustices are common practices in Nepal. The purpose of the Women’s Foundation of Nepal is to tackle these issues by raising awareness of them, and empowering women with their rights.”

The Ray of Hope

“I was in the Lower 9th Ward in the first spring after Katrina; it was a dreadful place. The force of water had shoved houses about like monopoly pieces; some atop roofs or upside down. One house would be shoved into another, merging like a welder’s torch. But with the end of winter, as Nature renews itself, hope returns even for those whose lives have been changed forever.”
                                                   -- Rolland Golden

Rolland Golden created a collection of paintings, and a book, KATRINA Days of Terror, Months of Anguish, expressing his reflections on the storm’s devastation.
