Coming Soon!: Princess Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure

For months, Breeze Brannigan has heard nothing from Cam, the prince she met at school, who disappeared one night, without telling her goodbye. On the night she graduates from middle school, however, he contacts her and invites her to visit Isla del Fuego, his home. Who could refuse such an invitation?

Breeze along with her whole family and best friends, Amy and Allison, soon sail to the island, where she and Cam renew their friendship. But danger lurks; a legend comes to life; and Breeze finds herself in the middle of a battle that can have one winner.

She’s affectionately known as the “Bug Lady.” She’s not telling why. To relax she plays the piano. Her fur babies don’t appreciate good music and hide when she tickles the ivories.

Recipient of both the Dove Family Seal of Approval and Mom’s Choice Gold honoring family friendly content. Winner of 3 children’s book awards.IMG_3012

Debbie started BeeBop Books Publishing in order to share stories that teach young readers, ages 4-9, about self-confidence, compassion, and family values. Preschool and early elementary school are valuable and formative years in a child’s life. Books are a key resource for teaching so much more than just reading. These stories have appropriate content to help children have the confidence to be themselves, understand some of their impulsive behaviors, navigating young friendships, and how adjust to school rules. School and family counselors, teachers, and parents have the tools to teach the children not only how to read, but how to navigate life’s lessons during those years. Her stories are inspired by her son and his classmates and are based on actual events that often occur in many children’s lives. Both The Christmas Pumpkin and The Worst Day Ever! have Mom’s Choice Gold award and the Dove Seal of Approval. Two accolades given to products that honor excellence in family-friendly content provided in a quality form of entertainment. In addition, they have earned several children’s book awards.

BeeBop Books was honored as 1 of 8 finalists considered“The Best of Texas Strong” in the 2014 Texas Rural Challenge for having developed products and services that can benefit rural Texas communities.
