Ramona Moreno Winner, Author of The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera, presented her books to an audience of 48 Foster Grandparents in Oxnard, CA on Friday, October  19, 2012.  The book carries a message promoting respect and caring for our elderly.

Ramona’s two other titles, introducing foods from different cultures and the Mexican jumping beans were also introduced as they both build on learning from a grandparent.

Foster Grandparent Program is one of Senior Corps’ (a corporation for national and community service)   programs that connects today’s 55+ with the people and organization that need them most.  The Foster Grandparents in the audience work with children in local schools assisting the most vulnerable students – many with development disabilities in Ventura, Thousand Oaks, Port Hueneme, Simi Valley and Oxnard.

Ramona has been writing and publishing children’s bilingual books since 1996.  Her books have multicultural themes so children can learn about different cultures.  You can visit Ramona’s website at: www.brainstorm3000.com

With the Wooden Bowl, Ramona wishes to make social change, One Reader at a Time.

Never too young for jumping beans!
