Fear versus Love
Quietly, she enters the home and tiptoes to the bathroom to brush her teeth. She looks in the mirror and smiles with gratitude, so happy to be on this beautiful planet, but suddenly she stops in her tracks after catching the movement of something on the floor slithering under the sink.
”A mouse? Hmm, maybe one of her friends followed her home!?” she stops and ponders.
Her face set in the same grin she'd been wearing as she stood daydreaming, but only now, set like stone, it was a mask of horror. Upon the bathroom floor was the body of the ugliest worm peering at her with its horrific eyes. Everything about it was ugly, grim and terrifying. It was a creature she'd never considered she would have to deal with in her life. The chime of the clock shook her from her gaze, and she shivered and took a step backward, casting her eyes to the door that lead to her bedroom.
Stuttering, “What are you? Not waiting for a reply, she exclaimed, “Oh my! Tell me you are not one of those horrible creatures?!” Not waiting for a reply, she explodes, ”A centipede! Yuck!!” “I have heard about centipedes in Hawaii, and I am not at all interested in having one in my home! How disgusting. Remove yourself! Go immediately! We live here now, and you do not belong here!”
Now becoming used to all this confrontation, the centipede looks up at her with the most prominent widest eyes as her tiny babies all peek out innocently from under the sink behind her. They all wear different colored bonnets tied neatly under their chins, almost a pathetic sight, her heart melts at the sight of them. On the one hand, she knows that this centipede can be very dangerous and if crossed in the wrong way. Her bite could be fatal. But on the other side, her look is, and she is in deep need of a home for her babies.
Jasmine ponders, ”Hmmm, what should I do?” After thinking for a bit, she says matter of factly, “Stay for the night, let me get some sleep.”
She hopes sleep would clear the clamoring thoughts from her aching head, and turns to enter her bedroom without much more thought. As she opens the door her eyes behold the most cutest sight, Razzle is in sleepy peace land lying on her back with her furry legs straight up, and her eyes delight at the brand new pink blanket at the foot of the bed. Without delay, Jasmine pounces right into the fluffy pink blanket, wraps her body around it, as Razzle envisioned, and falls fast asleep dreaming of moonlit skies.

About the Book
Lavender, a little black-and-white parti poodle; Razzle, a fluffy white cockapoo; and Jasmine, a long-haired tabby cat, are the best of friends. They’re getting ready to go on an adventurous trip together, but Razzle is ill. Her friends and her human owner, Ember, are very worried about her. They’re hoping a treatment known as quantum biofeedback will make Razzle well. This is a technology that helps the electrical body to connect with and heal itself.
This picture book shares the science behind quantum biofeedback in a way children can better understand the idea. Through both words and pictures, it communicates the idea of the energy and magic of nature, play, and how emotions can easily change by the sound of music, dance, and acceptance.
