Ron Roecker's Self-Published Debut "Why Ball Wouldn't Bounce" Joins Dr. Seuss, Jimmy Kimmel on "Best Children's Books of All Time" List
"With how divisive and uncertain the world is today, my mission is to reconnect families and generations through positive stories that are relevant to us all," said Roecker. "When you are a first-time self-publisher, it is almost impossible to compete with established best-selling authors and influencers who have millions of followers. To be on the same lists as my hero Dr. Seuss, as well as New York Times best-selling authors and pop icons is astonishing. The awareness of my books is thanks to the people who embraced them early on (many of them teachers) and read them to their classes or purchased several as gifts. Once people get them in their hands, they get hooked. Those are the cheerleaders for whom I am so incredibly grateful."
"They're calling him 'the next Mr. Rogers!' Ron Roecker's inspirational new books are exactly what we all need right now." Emmy-Winner/New York Times Best-Selling Author Leeza Gibbons.
"Why Ball Wouldn't Bounce: Book 1" and "Why Inch Got a Foot: Book 2" are from "6 of 1/Half A Doz of the Other: a Rhyming Book Series with DOs and AHAs for the 4-Year-Old Kid to the Adult Who 0nce Was," which is inspired by idioms and adages.
