Henderson, NV Author Publishes Children's Book

By: PR Leap
( Nan's Alphabet for Children, a new book by Maryjane Spillane, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Nan was nothing short of amazing. A mother of 13 children, she was devoted to their protection while being battered verbally and physically by her husband. Through all her struggles and trials, she nurtured the importance of education and self-worth, and instilled pride in her children, and through the progression of the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as they always turned to family-and Nan-for support.

Nan's Alphabet combines three generations of love, success, failures, death, and the importance of moving on. Her legacy delivers a message of persistence, religion, creativity, and boldness to try new things. And never forget to reach back to the family for support. Learn from Nan's legacy, and learn to learn from your own.
