QUEENS, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, November 27, 2021 / – Teaching children about the importance of family and helping them cope with the loss of a loved one is a difficult task made easier by the youthful fiction book “The Adventures of Doc Holliday Hennings”. There is now a limited edition holiday season published on Amazon at keywords = adventures + of + doc + vacation + hennings & qid = 1637684591 & sr = 8-1

“As a parent and storyteller, I have always tried to teach my daughter the value of family while making her understand that real families are often more complex and layered than popular culture would lead children to believe.” , said TK Bethea, the author of the book. . Also inspired by memories of Doc Holliday, her childhood dog, Bethea has created a tale that addresses issues such as stepfamilies, step-parents, step-siblings, mixed cultural upbringing and bullying. .

Six-year-old Jeffrey Hennings is sad in this novel because his mother passed away not too long ago. Now it’s just him and his father, Richard, and it has been difficult for them. One day, after Jeffrey had an argument with another boy at school, he and his father were walking home when they encountered a little brown and black puppy. A cowboy sells the dog, and Jeffrey and his father adopt him and call him Doc Holliday. One day, after hearing a conversation that makes him think that Jeffrey and his father don’t really like him, Doc decides to run away and find his biological family. On the street, he encounters a world of trouble, as Jeffrey and his father do their best to find Doc and let him know that he is truly part of their family.

The author of the book has also launched a tying plush toy, Doc Plush, which is available on Etsy, at collectible. The toy embodies the energy of the character and helps define the different meanings of family, friendships, relationships and perseverance. “It’s much more than a plush toy,” Mr. Tekea said. “It is actually a toy that aims to help children cope with loss, find the strength to cope with bullying, and feel more supported when experiencing the often conflicting emotions of growing up in an unconventional family, ”commented the author.

As the holiday season approaches, TK Bethea intends to give parents a meaningful Christmas gift that children will enjoy: a compelling children’s story that will resonate with a lot, and a welcoming plush toy with which they can bond and turn to, finding the comfort and empowerment of a best friend who symbolizes the best of friendship.

“This Christmas, I wanted parents to have a gift available to give their children that isn’t just another toy or video game, but rather a book that stimulates reading and that doesn’t use a soft toy. like others, intended to help develop emotional intelligence in children, ”added Bethea.

The book and toy that helps kids rediscover the meaning of real family, including stepfamilies and adopted families, as well as those forged by the bond of friendship, can now be purchased on Amazon or Etsy.
