SHREWSBURY, MA… Author Fern Davis Nissim, a resident of Shrewsbury, MA, announces the publication of the third book in the “Little Red Ant Books” series for children, entitled “Antiline’s Community Circle”.
Written and illustrated by Fern Davis Nissim and Sue Fleishman, the latest book, “Antiline’s Community Circle” is a beautifully-illustrated original story that shares three simple steps to learning how to create community and friendship – look, listen and learn. Essentially, the book is designed as a tool to help set up a Community Circle.
Now any group or child can create their own Community Circle the way Antiline did in the story. Follow easy how-to steps and lots of creative ideas from Antiline’s friend Toler-ANT as he explains how a Community Circle is a gathering of friends and neighbors where everyone is welcome and everyone listens to each others’ stories. It’s a safe place where children can meet, and friendships can start. Everyone can belong. Everyone is heard. Everyone has fun.
“Antiline’s Community Circle” contains artworks that are original watercolor paintings, and features coloring pages, a member certificate and name tag.
The book, released on “National Tell a Story Day” on April 27th, is fitting for Little Red Ant Books as they are meant to be conversation starters that open discussions with young children on the importance of accepting themselves and others by listening and learning that everyone has a story.
Little Red Ant Book Series
Every family has a story to tell about how they arrived here in America, whether it is your great grandparents or others. Fern Davis Nissim opens up new worlds while encouraging children to take pride in their family’s history and journey.
The first children’s book in the Little Red Ant series, “Antiline’s Brave Adventure: A Tale Of Freedom for Young Children” puts Antiline’s journey in to simple terms for a child to understand, with fun word play with “Ants” and the characters in the book. The second tale, “Antiline’s True Discovery: A Tale of Finding Family and Friendship” is created as a conversation starter, an opportunity to pursue discussions with young children about accepting themselves and others for our differences.
Nissim explained, “By the time I sat down to write the second and third books, it was pretty apparent that my storyline should develop into a message for young kids that would help promote tolerance and connectivity through acceptance of others and themselves. Everyone has a story and I felt I needed to help support this important message by giving teachers and parents a conversation starter.”
