New Award Winning Book Supports Parents in Passing On Words of Love and Life Wisdom

Joanne King authors an interactive book enabling parents to provide their children with a permanent record of love

LUTZ, FLORIDA – Out of Joanne King’s heart comes Answers, a book from parents to their children. Answers emphasizes that life is short and that it’s never too early to let your children know how much you love them. Based on the author’s own experience with how little control we have over our lives, this book prompts parents to write down details about themselves for their children as well as advice on love and relationships, religion and spirituality, and the difficult task of growing up.

Learning to walk again after a temporary paralysis, Joanne King was scheduled to be near the World Trade Center when the terrorist attacks occurred. Haunted by the event and the frailty of life, King was determined that her daughters and all children have permanent access to their parents’ love and advice.

She created Answers as a communication forum between parents and children. Encouraging parents not to take their relationships with their children for granted, Answers offers an opportunity to pass along valuable information that many may have trouble conveying verbally.

Joanne King’s hope is that every child will know how their parents feel about them and have access to their words of wisdom and love.
