Lebanon author shares illuminating parable in new juvenile fiction
LEBANON, Ind. — This week marks the nationwide release of “The Kite Maker,” a lesson-filled new children’s book by author Anne Burress.
“Would you like to fly?”
The Kite Maker asks this to each of his kites in this parable written for a kindergarten Sunday school class, “The Kite Maker.” What would you answer? Will you be paralyzed by fear? Or sadder still, will you demand to be set free? Will you stay connected to your maker and become the glorious creation you were meant to be?
Although written for a Sunday school class, “The Kite Maker” has been used successfully in a public school setting. It will create many teachable moments for readers and listeners alike.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Burress is a retired paraprofessional teacher who has worked with developmental preschool for 10 years. She has been a Sunday school teacher of small children for close to 30 years, and she is the proud mother of three men and seven grandsons. She and her husband live a quiet country life in Indiana.
