Online PR News – 26-August-2010 – – Cleveland, OH, August 24, 2010 -- New childrenâ€™s book author, Debbie Berger, recently published My Visit to the Land of Childhood, ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) a heartwarming tale about an adult who helps a boy deal with his anxiety over leaving behind his childhood. The Ohio-based mother of two feels she may have gotten the inspiration for writing the book from her role in helping her sons grow from children to adults. "My sons and I have a very close and open relationship," stated the author, "because Iâ€™ve always wanted them to feel comfortable being able to come to me with anything that was on their minds." My Visit to the Land of Childhood ( http://www.halopublishing.com )promotes this type of open and unguarded conversation between adults and children, the kind of dialog that calms fears and encourages an all-around sense of security and mental well-being. Berger hopes the book will allow kids to realize that it isnâ€™t so bad to grow up along with revealing to them different ways of expressing themselves. "My main message with the book is that I want children to learn to trust in the fact that there are adults to help them overcome hurdles and deal with any obstacle that comes along."
Berger has been a writer and poet for as long as she can remember and even recalls receiving recognition from grade-school teachers on some of her early poetry projects. However, it was only as an adult did she realize her true talent in poetry and decided to pursue a lifelong dream of writing and publishing her own book. "I wrote My Visit to the Land of Childhood ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) some time ago," admitted the author, "but it took me over a year to refine it and get it just right." Bergerâ€™s book is unique in that it not only reveals an important message, but it also introduces children to poetry. "The entire book is written in verse," stated Berger, "as I feel it is beneficial to introduce poetry to children at a young age."
My Visit to the Land of Childhood ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) offers a journey back in time for adults as well as a window into what adulthood has in store for children. "I hope the book will promote childrenâ€™s imaginations and that they get excited about what life has in store for them," stated Berger. "Also, I want readers to realize that even though they grow up, the kid inside them still exists. With a little imagination they can return to childhood for a visit." Along with writing poetry, Debbie Berger enjoys swimming, reading, working out, and still being a mom. The author resides in Cleveland, Ohio and has two sons, Cory (27) and Cole (21).
