BOOK REVIEW "I love this story.  I enjoyed how Jake and Amy didn't argue or bicker about getting lost.  The animals all helped one another.  The kids were sorry for getting lost and learned a lesson.  This story had subtle themes: respect your parents, admit when you've done wrong, care for one another.  Some how these basic concepts have become lost in our society and Tukie Tales is working to bring them back!  I can't wait to read more books in the series with my children."-AsTheyGrowUp.com

For a limited time, eBooks for the last four books are only $1.00 each. Regular price is $4.00. The eBook for the first book, LOST! is FREE. 

*Spark the Light of Imagination* The benefits will last a lifetime.

We believe today’s parents are ready for something different, and TUKIE TALES™ is ready to deliver. Imagine a world where people treat each other with respect, kindness, and would care about other living things. These concepts can change the course of the future. We want to be part of the solution. 

Children start to understand the concepts in the books when they are around 4 years old. Even though they don't know how to read yet, this is the time they can learn important life skills of imagination, safety, persistance, cooperation, teamwork, helping, and kindness. Children also need to develop "critical thinking skills" and self-confidence. These concepts are woven into the storyline of TUKIE TALES™. Since they can learn about these concepts before they can read, we wrote the series so an adult or older child can read to the small child. Parents can help instill a love of reading by sharing the special bond of reading aloud to their children. As the child grows, our stories will encourage them to learn to read themselves.

Parents can use TUKIE TALES™ as fun and entertaining tools to teach their children about safety and positive life skills.

In celebration of INTERNATIONAL BOOK GIVING DAY, we donated 200 books to various waiting rooms, children's hospitals and child care centers. Thank you to this International organization for an opportunity to spread the love and the joy of reading.

BOOK REVIEW "Tukie Tales: A New Beginning for a Better Tomorrow by Debbie Burns and Patty Cockrell are a cute little series of books about a group of woodland creatures who work together to solve problems. In the debut book of the series, "Lost!", the Tukies help Jake and Amy, siblings who get lost inside the forest. Each of the Tukies have a unique ability that make it easier to solve the problems they face. The kids here loved Tukie Tales... It is beautifully illustrated and the story is entertaining."-3Garnets2Sapphires.com

BOOK REVIEW "This was a fun book that makes your children think about how they would solve the problems that are presented to the main characters which is something that I love to see in children's stories. On top of this, the characters were fun and memorable, and my daughters loved hearing about them and asked if there were other books like this. I for one am looking forward to watching for more books in the future from these authors!"-DadOfDivas.com


After wandering away from the safety of their backyard, Jake and Amy are lost in a forest. Frightened and tired with a thunderstorm approaching, they find a talking woodpecker named Lulu. Realizing the danger the children are in, Lulu leads them to the Tukies. The Tukies, along with some help from their animal friends, help the children find their way home. The adventures and lessons learned along the way help the children realize the dangers of wandering away from the people they love.

LOST! is the first book in the TUKIE TALES Series.

    What a great concept! I love the adorable characters with special abilities. I read the preview of the book and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the book to see what happens. I know these stories are for children, but I found myself also enjoying what I was reading! I know my grandchildren will love them too. Looking forward to being one of your first customers!

    I'm 80 years old and my granddaughter showed me this site and is typing for me. Your mother sounds like a wonderful woman and I wish I could have known her. We also watched the video from their facebook page that was made in her memory. We thought it was very loving and it touched us. We downloaded the free eBook of LOST! too and we could see that their mother was a powerful influence on her daughters. We both feel the sisters who wrote this book are truly on a mission to help children. We are looking forward to buying the series when it is done so we can share these values with our family for years to come.

    I have all the books in the series now and my grandchildren want me to read them to them every time they visit us. They love the stories and think the special abilities of the Tukies are cool! I like the books too because my grandchildren are learning positive character traits like self-confidence, teamwork, helping others and kindness. All these good things plus the importance of nature, doing the right thing and all kinds of safety issues too. As you can tell, our family are big fans of the sisters and their book series. Well done!
