Something is Watching You - Omar Chin


Children are always picking things up and parents have to make sure they are picking up the right things.  This is the focus of "Someone is Watching You," by author Omar Chin.  From the moment of birth, a child relies on its parent for nurturing and that nurturing is for both the body and the soul.  With each interaction, a parent teaches a child how he or she should walk through life because that child may one day become a parent and will be responsible as someone will soon be watching him or her.

As a parent and author of children's books, Omar has crafted a not just a story but a teaching tool for parents, mentors, and young readers as they learn how to receive the baton and be prepared to pass it along in the future.
