New Hope, Pa., Resident Writes Children’s Book
New Hope, Pa., resident Cheryl Olsten has crafted a story that weaves a narrative of inclusivity, ambition, and the power of following your heart.
Within the pages of Mimi and the Gold Baton (Greenleaf Book Group), to be released October 10, readers will follow Mimi, and undaunted and spirited mouse, as she embarks on a journey through a world that embraces and celebrates differences. Through her poignant pursuit of becoming a “mousetro,” Mimi discovers an unexpected orchestra symbolizing the harmonious coming together of musicians from all walks of life.
At its core, Mimi and the Gold Baton is more than a story — it’s a catalyst for meaningful discussions. The narrative encourages readers to explore the profound value of embracing diversity in all its forms. Mimi’s journey to find her own unique path mirrors the experience of many students as they navigate the diverse landscape of schoolwork and education. This book is ideally suited to children ages 3-6 or anyone young at heart.
