Debut Children’s Book Author Ron Pugel Launches “Hangin’ with Henry”, an Inspiring Tale of Kindness and Generosity

How can we instill the values of kindness, helping and generosity in little kids? Writer and part-time graphics artist Ron Pugel has made the task easier with his debut children’s illustrated book, “Hangin’ with Henry: Friends Helping Friends”, to be officially launched on the National Crayon Day on August 2. The book is currently available in paperback and Kindle editions from Amazon.

Toddlers and children are too young to be preached around! ‘Hangin’ with Henry’ is for parents who want to instill basic values of being helpful and generous through the character of Henry, a caring and fun loving boy who drives around town in his trusty pickup truck. Henry is always willing to help his friends in the neighborhood, but one day, his truck breaks down. What will he do, and will his friends be around to help him?

A picture story (illustrations by Daniel Aires) that will appeal to children of all ages, the story of Henry presents a great role model for all kids, and is made more appealing by the cool pickup truck (Ron is a fan of vintage and muscle cars and owns a 1968 GMC pickup truck).

Hanging with Henry will have a positive impact on all young children. The selfless act of being a good friend is a wonderful lesson in life showing how helping others comes full circle,” said a recent reader.

As a preschool teacher, I know how hard it can be to find stories that teach lessons without being preachy. The tale of Henry does just that. Children will enjoy Henry’s many adventures, and at the end they’ll be asking themselves, “How can I be a helpful friend?” said a reader review.

‘Hangin’ with Henry’ has attracted a good readership, and recently reached the #1 spot for new releases on Amazon.  Ron and Dawn Pugel also run ATTA Enterprises, the umbrella company for the various e-commerce businesses owned by them.
