Cover Reveal Sydney Finds a Job illustrated children's book by Shari Todd and Thom Battisto

JLB Creatives Publishing is proud to reveal the cover of the anticipated upcoming children's book Sydney Finds a Job.

In Sydney Finds a Job, children follow Sydney as she tries to find a job that's right for her. Through humor, she tries several different jobs that just don't work out, but she finally finds one she loves. Helping children read.

Sydney Finds a Job is more than just a book. Sydney is a real dog with a real job, helping children learn to read. The Australian Sheppard/Chow mix was adopted from a no-kill animal shelter by author Thom Battisto about two years ago.

Sydney was trained and earned accreditation as a therapy dog and visits nursing homes to bring a bit of furry joy to the residents lives. She also visits schools, libraries and events to educate children about the human treatment of animals. Sydney’s favorite part of these visits is when the children are given the chance to read to her.

The First Lady Laura Bush had this to say after receiving a copy of Sydney Finds a Job.

“Dear Shari and Thom,
Thank you... for your work with the Read to Sydney Foundation and for sharing Sydney with others.”
---First Lady Laura Bush

About the authors:

Shari Shaw Todd grew up in a small town that gave seed to big dreams of being an author. Co-writing this book with Mr. Battisto has helped her make two dreams come true:  now she gets to be involved with kids and animals. Ms. Todd is currently dreaming up ideas for other books in the “Read to Sydney” series. Look for them to follow.

Thom Battisto was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in the Chicago suburbs. He is now a Florida resident and is a passionate advocate of animal rights. He has adopted several shelter dogs and has volunteered at a local shelter. Wanting to do even more, Thom and other supporters started the nonprofit organization called “Read to Sydney.” This is Thom's first book.

Sydney Finds a Job will delight early readers as well as older children and inspires a joy of reading in all ages. Stay tuned to this blog, JLB Creatives Publishing on Facebook, Twitter and G+ for more the release date and festivities to follow!
