Here’s a neat event benefiting Best Freinds of Pets:
Edmond resident Rita Gray-Martin will sign copies of her book Erick on Saturday, July 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Vintage Timeless Coffee, 900 NW 150th in Oklahoma City. As an educator, Gray-Martin encounters children who are very angry. In her book, a student acts out. Ms. Gray, his teacher, discovers why he is angry. Erick shows how a caring and loving relationship from an adult can make a positive difference in a child’s life. Rita Gray-Martin says “Erick is meant to help adults understand and take the time to investigate further into a child’s outbursts. Children see themselves in Erick.”
In addition to hardback and paperback books, Erick rag dolls, coloring books, CDs and bookmarks will be available. Ten percent of sales that day benefit Best Friends of Pets, a local animal welfare organization dedicated to reducing pet overpopulation by helping pets and their owners.
Rita Gray-Martin has spent over three decades in education. She currently is a Certified Trainer of Trainers, Transformation Coach, and motivational speaker. For more information, go to www.ritagraymartinauthor.webs.com.
