New Book: Armani Doesn’t Feel Well

Friends, we did it! Armani Doesn’t Feel Well is available in hard copy and via ebook. He is so excited to share his story with you!

After researching my self-publishing options for children’s books, I have decided to use Lulu Publishing for hard copies. You can purchase a paperback copy of Armani Doesn’t Feel Well here.

The ebook version is available on Kindle.

Edit: Special autographed edition now available on Etsy! Armani will sign your copy of his book, and he will even inscribe your copy with a special, personalized message if you want him to.

Armani Doesn’t Feel Well cover

Armani is a happy cat who lives with a family that loves him. But he gets sick, and his life changes. Vet appointments, tests, medicine – oh no! He’s angry, he’s sad, and he’s scared. Why doesn’t his sister have to take medicine? Why are his humans taking him to the vet when they know he does not like it? Will he ever feel better?

Armani Doesn’t Feel Well helps kids with illness understand their feelings about what is happening to them and fosters communication with caregivers about diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Discussion starters and prompts are included to open up conversation in a non-threatening, honest way.

In the paperback copy, discussion prompts are found at the end of the book to allow caregivers to pick and choose which prompts are most appropriate for their child. The ebook version gives you the story twice: once with questions at the end, and once with questions on the corresponding page. This way, you can present the story whatever way you want.

***Coming soon: I’m in the process of ordering a custom paw print stamp to allow Armani to “autograph” some special edition copies of his book. Stay tuned for information on these.
