Overview

EVERY PARENT HOPES HIS OR HER CHILDREN WILL LEARN THE VALUE OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP AND CULTIVATE LASTING BONDS. MOREOVER, EVERY CHILD AT SOME POINT LOOKS AT THE WORLD AND SEES CONFUSION. IN "ONE GOOD DAY", AUTHOR ROBERT MARTIN RECOUNTS A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP THAT RISES ABOVE THE CONFUSION TO REVEAL FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS ABOUT BEING YOUNG.

IN "ONE GOOD DAY--THE ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND SCOUT", AUTHOR MARTIN SHARES A HEARTWARMINGLY SIMPLE STORY ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND DIVERSITY, THROUGH A YOUNG PERSON'S EYES. WHATEVER YOUR AGE, WE ALL SEEK "ONE GOOD DAY" EACH DAY. IN ROCKY AND SCOUT, TWO YOUNG BOYS FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS FIND IN EACH OTHER NOT ONLY A TRUE FRIENDSHIP, BUT SOMETHING MORE. WHEN THEY ARE TOGETHER, THE WORLD BECOMES A MORE BEAUTIFUL PLACE, AND THE CONFUSION OF THE EVERYDAY WORLD EVAPORATES.

AUTHOR ROBERT MARTIN GREW UP NEVER KNOWING HIS FATHER, BUT HIS HAPPY CHILDHOOD IN SUBURBAN PHILADELPHIA INSPIRED HIM TO MENTOR OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE.
