Fort Wayne Author/Illustrator Pens Kids' Creative Relaxation How-to

Bonnie Tobey Manning is a professional photographer with a passion for storytelling, and a penchant for writing and illustrating kids' books.

Her newest offering, "My Thinker Is Tired", addresses the fine art of relaxation--for children and their grownups.

Miss Bonnie, as she is known to her loyal fans, does monthly storytelling with pediatric patients at Lutheran Children's Hospital, where she maintains a Read and Deliver program for the participants.

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Manning to uncover the motivation behind the project, and what the author calls "celebrating our own inner calm."
