DonnaInk Publications, Little Buggy Productions, releases TBI Guy's Learnin' Lessons
Author J. R. Hatcher's new title, "TBI Guy's Learnin' Lessons: Raking Grandiflora Magnolia Leaves" released 20 March 2021 - the latest DonnaInk Publications Disability Awareness title for juvenile readers is already receiving positive reader review.
CARTHAGE, N.C.: DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. through their Little Buggy Productions (children's) Imprint, releases Author J. R. Hatcher's TBI Guy's Learnin' Lessons, first series title. This is Hatcher's debut children's disability awareness title relative to the character TBI Guy and is unique in addressing the day-to-day activities of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor. Jamie, who sustained a brain injury in 2003, worked diligently for eighteen years to recover and doctors continuously deem him 'remarkable'.
He shares, "In living, folks do not discern differences in daily activities and achievements for TBI Guys or Girls. When brain injury survivors complete mundane tasks their mannerisms may appear unusual; however, executing mundane tasks differently may be a major achievement for them. Where TBI Guy's or Girl's are more cognitive, they may seem overly engaging or ask repetitive questions. I suggest viewing 'Regarding Henry' or '50 First Dates' movies that share idiosyncrasies in TBI recovery. My children's book series is created to bridge understanding gaps for disability awareness. Learnin' Lessons shares positive voice and visualization emphasizing routine life skills and interactions. Through child readers and parents who read with, or to, them, education is heightened by a household. It is my hope this results in greater understanding for us all."
