Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Aug 07, 2017 - Author Jackie McReynolds-Ruchti of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho tells the true story of a twin adoption in her autobiographical children’s book, Jack and Almost Jill. Featuring illustrations by Hazel Campos of Guatemala, Jackie tells the story of her and her brother’s adoption in full color.
Jack and Almost Jill is wonderful for children who have siblings or friends who are adopted, or who have been adopted themselves. “Adoption is a loving family structure, just as birth families are,” Jackie says. Jackie was adopted at a time when adopted children were sometimes treated differently, and even looked down upon. She wants adopted children to feel loved and accepted.
In Jack and Almost Jill, infant twins Jack and Jackie are adopted and brought to a new home on a farm. With their new family, Jack and Jackie have adventures catching frogs and fireflies, eating tomato sandwiches, and playing pretend with their new big brothers and sisters. They discover that the love in an adopted family is the same as in other families – because family is all about love.
Jackie was born in Evansville, Indiana on the Ohio River, where she began writing poems at age seven, but discovered her true penchant for writing later in life. Jack and Almost Jill is her first book. She is currently working on another children’s book, Freckles are Fabulous, which will be published later this year.
