NEWS & EVENTS
Hello Simeon Fans!
The Soul Perspective team is so excited to announce the launch of our second book in the Simeon Bleeker series, "Simeon Bleeker's Magical Sneakers: A Walk through Anxiety"!
In this adventure, Simeon spends sometime in the shoes of a friend named Kolby while at Summer Camp. Kolby had anxiety. After Simeon notices that Kolby struggles participating in camp activities, Simeon puts his magical sneakers to work. As Simeon spends some time in Kolby's shoes, he is able to start to understand why Kolby feels and acts the way he does.
We could have never imagined a few years back, at the start of the pandemic, that we would already have released 2 books by this points. Along with that, we have done numerous virtual readings, book signings, and even live empathy focused events at local schools.
None of this would have been possible without your support! Thank you for being there from the beginning and please show your support again for picking up a copy of Simeon Bleeker's Magical Sneakers: A Walk through Anxiety available on Amazon!
