Where do I start. Well my journey started with this one little book years ago. Feeling depressed and lonely about losing my stepson through a divorce. I decided to write a short little story for kids to tell them they did not always have to win, as long as they tried their best. In this day and age we all PUSH our kids to be number one and when they do not win they are heartbroken. In Ted and Raymond’s Adventure Series one the first short story is The Croak 500. Ted is a simple frog who loves trying new stuff. He fixes up a car to enter a race. His best friend Raymond ALWAYS has to be in first, so he enters too. Going around the track they are side by side. NEITHER frog wins first but they tie for 2nd place. They tried their hardest and still remained friends. This is what I want to teach our kids today!

Hello my name is Rhonda Patton. I am a wife, mother of two and a graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.

I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) I am also a member of ASMSG (Authors Social Media Support Group) and also located on the Authors Database (Authors DB). The famous actress Kristin Davis of “Sex and the City” has featured us in MOMTASTIC, “African Safari with Ted and Raymond" was a book I researched from a challenge I had from our viewers. My husband Chester McDaniel is my illustrator. Together we make Ted and Raymond who they are today. We have books that focus on social issues as bullying for young children to understand, one that teaches being a winner doesn’t always mean being number one, we have a book that teaches kids not to be afraid of the dentist, and one to chase their dreams. Names of our books are: Dylan & the Croak Orleans Gang African Safari with Ted and Raymond ABC’s with Ted and Raymond Raymond goes to the Dentist Grayson the Bully Frog with Ted and Raymond The Croak 500 Simpson the slimy snake slithers sideways Ted and Raymond’s Christmas Tree Harold Freddie and Milo You can find more information about our books at www.thecroak500.com Find on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheCroak500 Twitter: @thecroak500auth View all posts by Rhonda Patton
