The Adventures of Lucy Lou (Book 1) is a compilation of six short stories. The stories were written over a period of several years. All of the stories have moral value. In the first book, Lucy Lou shows compassion for her mother and bargains with the ghost. The second book depicts how a handicap does not keep one from doing great things. This book originated from my forty-eight years of work with children who have disabilities. I worked with all disabilities as a special educator.
The third book shows friendship between relatives. In the fourth book, you will find out how Lucy Lou, with help from the ghost, brought happiness to a little boy who had been bullied at school. It is the story about the gift of giving, which is the greatest gift of all. The fifth book shows cooperation between classmates and Lucy Lou’s love for the ghost by granting his wish.
The sixth book in the series is a story of compassion, forgiveness, repentance, and acceptance. It is truly a story for all ages.
