Be a Buddy, Not a Bully, tackles one of the most timely issues facing youngsters today - bullying. It features two canine characters, Buddy Beagle, everyones best friend, and Bully Bulldog, who antagonizes everyone, especially cats. The story encourages children to Be a Buddy, Not a Bully.

The Hugs & Kisses story books say I Love You to children in so many ways, utilizing todays relevant issues and themes to promote values that young people can understand, identify with, and hopefully emulate. The Hugs & Kisses Mission Statement: CELEBRATING DIFFERENCES To promote family values and home-life experiences and structures, while dealing with societal issues, and prejudices of the day in a positive manner. Using dogs and cats to show how we can all get along in a diverse society, and benefit from each others time, talents, and treasures. To demonstrate and re-enforce positive values to young children, like getting along with others who are different, by showing that even cats and dogs dont have to fight like cats and dogs. PRIMARY SOCIETAL ISSUES: RACE: Cats vs. Dogs GENDER: Male vs. Female VISABLE PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES: Size (Short & Tall, Large & Small)- Color (All shades of Love) RELATIONSHIPS: Friendship is not limited to a few. It is meant to be all-inclusive. CHALLENGES: Personal challenges should not limit or deter inclusion. LOVE: Knows no limits or barriers and its description is beyond words. These issues may be expounded and expanded in limitless ways, never outdated from one generation to the next. Every story has the same premise: Say I Love You, to others in a variety of ways. Hugs & Kisses story books and songs do just that. They say I Love You to children, using these primary issues or themes to make a point young children can understand, identify with, and hopefully emulate. Owen McGovern Author
