Selma, AL -- (SBWire) -- 01/14/2014 --While children may first appear to be the most accepting people on the planet, their formative years are a vital opportunity to instill life-long good habits of friendship and compassion. Through an enchanting and entertaining new book, author Damon Pickett attempts this feat with gusto.

‘Kebo in the Animal Bus’ will resonate with children of all ages.


This is a Educational Book for Children of all ages. The Story is about a bus filled with animals. The bus was headed to the zoo. On the bus, was a little cub named Kebo that was really shy and he always wanted a friend.

After getting lost from his group and encountering many unfriendly animals, he is delighted to finally be reunited with his true friends.

The author has a passion for inspiring children and empowering them to become good people.

“It can be hard to teach children the dos and don’ts of life – especially if you try to preach to them. Therefore, I wrap my life-lessons up in an entertaining and relatable story that helps children to learn without even realizing it!” says Pickett, who has had a lifelong fascination with writing.

Continuing, “It’s all about having fun and allowing children to absorb the information on their own watch. Literature is a great vehicle for this and I’m delighted to be doing my part.”

However, for Pickett, sharing his wisdom is also a part of the long process of grief.

“I lost a new-born child and had to very quickly accept that I would never have an opportunity to teach him everything I have learned over the years. This unfortunate situation inspired me to do what is attainable – reaching out to other people’s children and putting my wisdom to good use,” he adds.

With the book’s popularity increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
