A local counselor and author releases her third book in the hopes of helping children develop self-esteem.
Rochelle Shamaley, a wife and mother of a two – who also has a Master’s Degree in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy – has released her third book, The Magic Rock.
Shamaley’s previous books Buddy Finds a Home and Echo of Silence (a book of poetry) combine her favorite past times.
“Writing books for children combines my counseling training, therapeutic expertise, knowledge of self-development, and love of children, with my passion for storytelling,” Rochelle shared.
She adds, “Children develop self-esteem and even have developmental shifts when they read captivating books which share morals in an entertaining tale.
Her new book, The Magic Rock, follows Chuck – a young boy convinced his bad luck will never go away. His entire life changes when his father gives him a magic rock that seemingly banishes his bad luck.
The change is short-lived when a school bully takes the rock from him, but that twist leads to a very rewarding and life-altering discovery.
The sing-song rhyming in the story, as well as the simple, yet touching illustrations, ease the reader into Chuck’s journey of self-confidence and discovery.
