Woodstock author publishes a book with a message.

The message I want to get out there is that as parents and guardians we need to encourage our children. We need to get back to basics and tell our children how important and special they are in our lives.”
Natalie Wood

A Woodstock poet has released a children’s book that offers children “positive affirmation about themselves.”

“I just wanted to put a book out there that was motivating for children and uplifting,” said Natalie Wood. “Children are our future, and we need to show them positive reinforcement.”

Wood, a longtime Woodstock resident who works at Domestic Abuse Ser vices Oxford and St. Mary’s Catholic High School, said she began writing again about two years ago after a long hiatus.

“I enjoy writing. Years ago I used to write poems and songs,” she said.

Her most recent works have taken the form of poetr y , including a poem written after the death of her father and another for her son’s marriage.

Originally written as a poem, she decided to turn The Alphabet of Love into a children’s book and self- published it through AuthorHouse.

In The Alphabet of Love, each letter of the alphabet represents a positive affirmation for the young reader “coming from the perspective of adult or parent.”

“It’s exciting; it’s overwhelming,” Wood said of publishing her first book. “The message I want to get out there is that as parents and guardians we need to encourage our children. We need to get back to basics and tell our children how important and special they are in our lives.”

Next year, the book will be travelling to international book fairs as far away as China and Germany.

The Alphabet of Love can be purchased at Merrifield Book Shop or online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters.

A book signing will take place at Merrifield Book Shop on Dec. 13 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The hardcover version of the book is $32 while the soft cover is $24, taxes included.
