Council Publishing Presents: Bookee & La La
Council Publishing Releases Bookee & La La: Life Lessons, Bookee & La La Say No to The Pressure to be Stupid, Bookee & La La Learn to Manage Money and Bookee & La La Love the Lord. The Spanish Versions, of all four books. Bookee & La La are multi-lingual too.
Local Attorney and Professor encourages character building and social resilience in her newly published children’s book. Bookee & La La, little urban heroes, are current, fresh and visually engaging characters who ultimately triumph when confronted with many of life’s daily challenges.
The Bookee & La La series is designed as a teaching tool for parents and educators. Many children of color do not have books with characters that look like themselves. While, purple dinosaurs are cute, they do not look like the reader. However, Bookee & La La do. The book is available on Amazon.com and Itunes.com and www.bookeelala.com and www.councilpublishing.com in paperback, secure pdf, Kindle and Epub versions.

She received her B.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles, a J.D. from The University of Houston and a Doctorate in Law & Policy from Northeastern University in Boston, MA.
The author lived through the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 and watched the crack epidemic and gang violence overtake the city. Many children and their parents were in the crossfire of both.

It is the author’s hope that this book series will be an effective tool to help children learn to read while instilling a commitment to their community to make it better when they grow up.
