KNKX 88.5 story about the book:
Panda Demick could do something that no other panda has ever been able to do before. Demick could talk to animals, children, and even itsy-bitsy viruses. Though sad things are happening in the world around him, Demick is a good friend who is willing to do what is necessary to keep all of his friends safe. An uplifting children’s story about listening to friends, and those in need, in order to heal nature and grow healthy and happy together.
Beautifully illustrated, with an ensemble cast of pandas, elephants, lions, eagles, sparrows, giraffes, camels, whales, toucans, koalas, frogs, sea turtles, hippopotami, bees, ladybugs, ants, sloths, flamingos, cats, dogs, frogs, and loving humans. Panda Demick is a uniquely heartwarming treasure to be handed down and shared with future generations.
Written in loving memory of those lost worldwide to COVID-19.
