Congratulations to NATALIA TOREEVA

On February 11, 2020 she published her newest children’s book, “Four-legged Friends in the Bark Park”  It is available on  AMAZON

Everyone can be bullied. Even dogs!

Max the dog is very smart, but Max has anxiety because he’s being bullied. It all started at the local dog park when Max was attending training classes. Other dogs bullied poor Max, but his friends Helen and Greg helped him get through it and put a stop to Max’s anxiety.

Children will learn from reading Four-Legged Friends in the Bark Parkthat being nervous has nothing to do with how smart someone is. Whether it’s dogs or humans, bullying is a bad thing.

It’s been said that “Strong people stand up for themselves. But the strongest people stand up for others.”

Dennis Bartizal is proud to announce publishing a collection of his High School stories

               I went to high school in the 60’s and 70’s.  When growing up I had a closer affinity to animals and machines.  It is not that I disliked people.  I did not know how to communicate with people.  When I was a child, I had pets and I played the accordion and the saxophone.  I’ve always enjoyed reading and I enjoyed watching plays.  Along with essays for my English classes and the writing I did for my school newspaper I also wrote stories and poems and tried to write plays.  I feel that my English teachers taught me a way to communicate with people.  I also feel that the columns I wrote for my high school newspaper were like attending gym class, I exercised certain ways how to communicate with people.  I noticed our government, country wide protests and cares our society expressed.  Richard Nixon, Mayor Daley, Vietnam Protests, Racial Injustice.  I wrote my interpretation of what I noticed.  And I know I did not notice it all.
