Destiny intersected with fate on a warm autumn morning when a Saturday thrift-shopping trip led to the discovery of an unwanted toy tagged for sale. The puppet had lain on the table for days filled with anticipation, dreaming and wondering about who would befriend him and if he would be the next one chosen to go to a new home. The nameless doll was unaware of the imaginative adventures he would embark upon being purchased by his newfangled puppeteer on that unforgettable day.His new residence was located at a learning center with an early childhood educator who affectionately named him Wrallo. Soon everyone would admire him, finding his contagious smile, happy demeanor, and humorous personality to be irresistible. Wrallo generated excitement, piqued children's curiosity, engaged interactively with all students, and assisted with certain duties. Within the classroom, he represented a universal symbol of love, acceptance, and belonging. Wrallo reminded learners of expectations, helped build confidence, sparked critical thinking, and encouraged the use of problem-solving strategies. On his unique journeys, Wrallo has become infamous for his innate ability to model appropriate social skills, take risks, acknowledge the perspectives of others, and warm the hearts of many children from diverse cultures and backgrounds.In this five-book series, Welcome to Wrallo's World, readers are immersed in ingenious travels and experiences with Wrallo and his best friend, Catalina.
