Oakdale, CA December 22, 2023 –(PR.com)– J.C. Van Hook, a retired reading teacher at an adult high school who also taught English as a second language, has completed her new book, “Chick-A-Pea and Me”: a charming story of the lasting friendship between a young girl and her special pet chicken, detailing their various adventures and all the new friends they make each and every day.
Originally from Iowa, author J.C. Van Hook moved to Manteca, California, as a child and grew up there, attending the local schools. As an adult, she spent six months in Germany and attended a language school there before going on to become an educator. In addition to teaching, Van Hook has had a real estate license for forty-six years, and she is now enjoying her retirement spending time with her family, writing books for children, and playing in a concert band.
“This book is about love and friendship among a human girl and her pet chicken Chick-a Pea,” shares Van Hook. “She was given the chicken when it was still in an egg, and a pigeon hatched the egg. As the story progresses, several other animal characters are added to the story, and they are friends too. It should serve as a reminder to the reader that no matter who, or what we are, we can live together. It illustrates that we can all be friends and love one another.”
Published by Page Publishing, J.C. Van Hook’s delightful tale is inspired by true events and will capture the hearts and imaginations of young readers as they follow along on Jane and Chick-a-Pea’s escapades, discovering the fun they have along the way. With vibrant, colorful artwork to help bring Van Hook’s story to life, “Chick-A-Pea and Me” is sure to keep readers of all ages engaged, leaving them wanting to revisit this beautiful story of friendship.
