Los Angeles, California, united states, 05/26/2020 / Story.KISSPR.com /

Award-winning writer and artist Ron Roecker’s self-published debut, “Why Ball Wouldn’t Bounce,” (www.bit.ly/BallBook) named to “Best Children’s Books of All-Time” and “Best New Children’s Books to Read in 2020” Lists by BookAuthority.org, as his highly anticipated follow-up, “Why Inch Got a Foot,” (https://amzn.to/3cMIAB0) debuts on Amazon worldwide.  “Why Ball Wouldn’t Bounce” joins the ranks of classic works by icons Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein, Emmy-winner Jimmy Kimmel, reality TV personality Karamo (“Queer Eye”) Brown, New York Times Best-Sellers Kwame Alexander and Melissa Sweet, and more. It also earned 5 out of 5 stars from LitPick, GoodReads, Reedsy Discovery, Amazon, Kindle and Facebook. “Best” lists are compiled by BookAuthority.org based on public mentions, recommendations, ratings and sentiment https://bookauthority.org/books/best-childrens-books.

“With how divisive and uncertain the world is today, my mission is to reconnect families and generations through positive stories that are relevant to us all,” said Roecker. “When you are a first-time self-publisher, it is almost impossible to compete with established best-selling authors and influencers who have millions of followers. To be on the same lists as my hero Dr. Seuss, as well as New York Times best-selling authors and pop icons is astonishing.  The awareness of my books is thanks to the people who embraced them early on (many of them teachers) and read them to their classes or purchased several as gifts. Once people get them in their hands, they get hooked. Those are the cheerleaders for whom I am so incredibly grateful.”

“They’re calling him ‘the next Mr. Rogers!’ Ron Roecker’s inspirational new books are exactly what we all need right now.” Emmy-Winner/New York Times Best-Selling Author Leeza Gibbons.
