Bonnie A. Wayne combined her love for children and the humorous pictures of her two standard poodles to create The Adventures of Bella and Finny Series©™. With a background in Human Services, Bonnie has worked with children in different capacities for nearly three decades. Because of her experience, Bonnie has found that humor is a very effective way to teach. Her unique books are creative, fun and a great learning tool for parents and educators. The Adventures of Bella and Finny Series©™ have been a huge success in classrooms. Teachers enjoy presenting the material as much as the children enjoy learning. Research will show when you combine entertainment with teaching, children retain information better. Children love to laugh and learn with Bella and Finny! The love of books is one of the most invaluable gifts we can give our children. The Adventures of Bella and Finny Series©™ is a positive start toward their life long journey with books.


he Adventures of Bella and Finny Series is the 2009 Silver Recipient of the Mom's Choice Awards. The Mom's Choice Awards® is known for establishing the benchmark of excellence in family-friendly media, products and services. I have sold over 1,000 copies, had successful book signings at Borders and Barnes & Noble in NY and FL, traveled to classrooms up and down the East coast, Albany Times Union published a feature story on the book series which landed me a small interview on a local radio station, pictures of Finny have been published by Women’s World Magazine, and they have their own web site. The Adventures of Bella and Finny Series will be in the NEW TITLE SHOWCASE at the BEA
