Shannon Stocker and her daughter Cassidy return to the #ReadingWithYour Kids #Podcast to celebrate Shannon's new book, "Warrior." The book, published by Sleeping Bear Press, tells an allegorical tale of a girl who faces various challenges, including crossing a serpent sea, navigating a fear forest, and conquering monster mountain, with the ultimate goal of ringing the bell and ridding her kingdom of beasts. The story also touches on the theme that any child with a long-term illness or disability is a warrior because they are continually fighting their battles. Cassidy, who battled cancer as a young child, served as the inspiration for the book. She discusses her journey and how she found strength and determination in the face of adversity. She emphasizes the importance of doing the right thing and spreading joy and hope to others. The book is seen as a powerful and relatable story not only for children dealing with illness but for all families facing challenges in life. Shannon also hints at upcoming projects, including a debut novel and a memoir for someone well-known in the disability community.
