Daniel Bernstrom has just released his 3rd book, Big Papa and the Time Machine. His 3rd book for children and one that has deep roots in Daniels’s life journey, dealing with abandonment, bravery and love. Big Papa and the Time Machine recalls a past that Daniel could only imagine but the realities, facts and some fiction put it all together in this wonderful book.
From his African American heritage, to remembering his Papa’s story telling, Daniel captures the moments in this fictional depiction through the eyes of a 5 year old grandchild and his Big Papa.
Daniel relates how the Picture books convey some of the similarities of his vision loss and the depiction of the story illustrated by the artists drawing the pictures. How vision loss can blur the images and how memory can be a bit fuzzy in the mind. So too can what Daniel sees and doesn’t see.
Join Daniel Bernstrom and Jeff Thompson as they open the story wide open and how Big Papa and the Time Machine came about.
You can find all of Daniel’s books on Amazon
