Royal Palm Beach Author Publishes Children’s Book

The cover of author Veronica R. Johnson’s new book.

The Adventures of Allie, Randy and Iggy, a new book by Veronica R. Johnson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co.

The Adventures of Allie, Randy and Iggy is a metaphorical story of friendship and realizing that readers can embrace diversity and learn that they have more in common than their differences. Allie, Randy and Iggy were all childhood pets in Johnson’s family life. Even though this is a children’s story, it carries with it a message that rings true for everyone, regardless of age.

Johnson is a middle school music teacher who enjoys the opportunities of sharing the joy of music and all of the life lessons that come along with it. She enjoys being a part of the culture of her diverse school family, and she loves the impact that she and her colleagues have on their students and the community.

Her hobbies are writing, artwork, creating unique gifts for family and friends, knitting and learning to play the cello.

Johnson has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in music from Howard University in Washington, D.C., and is the daughter of a music teacher who shared everything with her that she knows and loves today about music and relationships with others.

Throughout her years of teaching, among the greatest challenges for Johnson has been trying to teach the values of good character to children, who are growing up in a world dominated by technology and often lacking in social-emotional well-being. Embracing the beauty of humanity is needed so that the upcoming generations will be able to be tomorrow’s leaders. As an educator, Johnson believes that it is important for young people to be involved in the visual and performing arts, as they provide a well-rounded avenue for self-expression and growth.

The Adventures of Allie, Randy and Iggy is a 40-page hardbound with a retail price of $35 (eBook $30). To buy the book, visit
