There are very few things anymore that get me excited to actually write a posting, but Sam Baker and his amazing children’s book: Oscar The Mouse, did just that. Being a blogger, I let you see what I want you to see. What I find beautiful. What I find amazing. I usually don’t talk about myself in too much detail but being a military history major, I had to share what this amazing man is doing.
Now 98-years old, Sam has went from serving in World War II in the Pacific to being stationed in Cape Canaveral, Florida, to being the first GPS salesman. Now he is writing amazing children’s books with a purpose.
He recently published “Oscar the Mouse” – a picture book with a message about accepting the special things that make you different. Will Mimi, the main character, face her fears and make a new friend? Learn what happens when she explores a new kind of friendship, bringing more joy and laughter to both of their lives?
Oscar the Mouse is Baker’s second book in two years. His first book The Silly Adventures of Petunia and Herman the Worm is a chapter book.

Baker wants children and adults alike to learn how to imagine the world a better place. A place where there is love, harmony, hope, and joy. He makes learning the lesson of love and acceptance a fun and entertaining experience for all of us and gives us a chance to escape the stress of this world and go to a place where differences come to be appreciated and sought after.
Here are a few words from Mr. Baker on the new book.
I really think, no matter if you are a child or an adult reading this posting that this book is what we all can use right now. We need to learn to accept each other, though our ideals might be worlds apart.
Sam Baker, though I have never met the man, is one that has seen the world not only at its worst but at it’s finest. I want to thank Mr. Baker for his service to the country and best wishes for his newest book. Make sure to check it out and I do hope that you enjoy it.
