  • Children's author, Laurie Donahue, will sign books June 15 at The Well in McPherson. She will sign four books she has written or co-written.
    “Mr. Blue — a Job for You,” an allegoric, rhyming picture book about finding God’s purpose in a person’s life.
    This book comes with cut-outs that re-tell the story again and again.
    She will also sign “God Should I Be Baptized?” a preparation workbook for believer's baptism that has sold more than 40,000 copies and “The Lord’s Supper — Let's Get Ready” endorsed by John MacArthur.
    The Well is at 101 N. Main Street, McPherson, (620) 241-1840.
    It will be a great day, full of surprises including free bookmarks and activity pages for the kids!
    Susan Wilson, principal of Pleasant Valley Christian School, says of “Mr. Blue a Job for You,” “A touching illustration of God’s creativity and perfect plan for the ‘Mr. Blue’ in each of us. I especially love how the
    book comes alive as children role play with the character shapes provided in the book. It is truly an engaging ‘heart warmer’ for all ages!”
    Mr. Blue’s own web page has extra activities to stimulate and entertain children. One of the activities called, “Mr. Blue Goes With You” will allow a child to print a large Mr. Blue character to be mounted on poster board and accompany a child at work or play, providing a photo-op of the new adventure.
    Another activity is for a child to submit a melody or lyrics lyrics for a song about Mr. Blue. Selections of both of may be published. The Mr. Blue activity page is found at http://lifesongpublishers.com/mrblueclub.htm. Coloring pages in pdf format also are provided on the activity page. Mr. Blue is published by LifeSong Publishers in Somis, Calif.
    Donahue has authored or co-authored five books. She has four grown daughters and four grandchildren and lives in Southern California with her physician husband, Timothy Donahue.
