Mission author Kim Teresa Oshiro has created a new kind of children’s ABC book.

Mission author pens children’s ABC book

According to the local author, this is the first ABC book that encompasses the global community with the universal message of love.

Mission author Kim Teresa Oshiro has opened the door and taken readers along a new road where the alphabet has not yet travelled, with her children’s book ABC in Harmony.

Written with lyrically poetic, rhyming verse and vocabulary-rich words, the letters are easy to recall, while being infused with positive messages.

According to the local author, this is the first ABC book that encompasses the global community with the universal message of love.

“Every child shares centre stage in my book,” said Oshiro. “ABC in Harmony reveals how all children can become the architects that co-create the world in harmony, balance and love. Every child is born with an innate talent and unique gift that defines them and when inspired in a positive light by us, they can ultimately enhance the world by sharing their invaluable gift.”

The book has been read in the classroom as part of Anti- Bullying Day in Strong Start.

The organization Kids Need to Read in Mesa, Arizona has recently made ABC in Harmony a part of its READ Together program.

The Mission school district will be having the book as part of its Ready Set Learn Program.
