“Children’s life lessons as seen through a dog’s eyes”
Atlanta, Aug. 27—Global Mom’s Choice Awards® has honored Reynolds Lake Oconee resident Andrea Cassell with two Gold Awards for "Kibby, The Space Dog" and "Kibby Gets a Little Sister", judging each of them to be the best in family-friendly media and products.
Cassell’s books are inspired by the real life experiences of Kibby, her miniature Labradoodle. A former special education teacher, Cassell calls her series “children’s life lessons as seen through a dog’s eyes.” The books are primarily for ages four through eight.
A third book, "Kibby and Olive Move to Georgia", will be released in Spring 2020 and is based on Kibby and Olive’s experience of moving from Kansas to Georgia. It is written to help children adjust to moving, whether across town or across the country.
