About Dr. Elana Ashley
For over two decades, Dr. Elana Ashley has developed and presented educational and entertaining programs for students ranging in age from preschool/kindergarten through junior high school, for families, for teachers, and for mental health professionals. Her latest book, Case Two: Big Bully Holly Howler, is an imaginative adventure full of friendship and creative anti-bullying strategies.
Dr. Ashley is the creator, author, and illustrator of the children's book series entitled Splunkunio Splunkey Detective and Peacemaker. Her book, Case Two: Big Bully Holly Howler, was highly recommended by Midwest Book Review, "This inspiring, charming story takes its place in the innovative series for elementary students, featuring creative use of detective and peacemaker skills to solve interpersonal problems," Nancy Lorraine, Senior Reviewer.
H.B. Barrett, Ed.D., retired Science Education Professor, Northeastern Illinois University, says "What a unique and thought provoking treatment of a deeply troublesome social issue!" He praises several features of the book including the rarely seen inclusion of a Spanish translation side by side with English in the bi-lingual edition. Dr. Barrett continues, "The basic concept that is pervasive throughout the story is that the only way to make a friend is to be a friend. Dr. Ashley effectively gives strategies for succeeding with this challenge."
Chicago blogger Olena-Elena Aleksandra Fomina, Chief Humane Growth Officer of SV Global Group-SV Branding states "There are lots of beautiful children's books on the market today. However, Dr. Elana Ashley's [book] stands out from the crowd." She cites the book's originality, creativeness, support and promotion of the humane values of peaceful conflict resolution, ethical leadership and positive role models for children's healthy development. As a mother, Olena asked her 10 year old daughter what she thought of the book. A big fan, Sofiia exclaimed, "I loved it!"
According to Dr. Ashley, research shows one in three American children are directly involved in bullying, either as a victim or a perpetrator, or both. She has key recommendations for parents, including having a clear definition of what constitutes bullying, to know the warning signs, to encourage open communication, and to practice response strategies, providing structure and setting an example.
As Dr. Ashley says, "Can you imagine what our world would be like if each of us was able to perform the magic that Ellie Elephant makes happen in my story [transforming a bully into a friend!]… Societies throughout the world will have advanced to an amazing place reflecting human compassion and human passion never truly known or experienced before!"
