Bitsy and Raff – A timeless story for Children of All Ages


I’ll give you a hint: It’s SOMETHING WONDERFUL! And it opens the door to a whole SERIES of adventures in the pond and beyond.


The tale of Bitsy and Raff celebrates the power of friendship and the importance of inclusion in our increasingly complicated world. When a child is encouraged to befriend others in spite of– or better yet, IN APPRECIATION of–differences, the whole community wins. The ensuing series of books will take Bitsy and Raff on further adventures, which will inspire, enlighten, or sometimes simply ENTERTAIN!

  • Printing of the first edition. You’ll get a copy if you donate $50 or more!
  • Printing of an e-book version. We’ll send you that, too!
