Nationwide  Russell Dilligard is dedicating the release of his first children's book Little Toby's Rainbow to Elizabeth Dilligard, his co-author, who sadly has passed away. The book is now available as an ebook on Kindle and also in Paperback.

Little Toby's Rainbow was inspired by Elizabeth, who sat by her window since day one, filled with nostalgia of her childhood when she was excited to go outside and play on a rainy day. The story is centered around a six-year-old named Little Toby, who could not play outside on a rainy day. Little Toby is then magically transported to Rainbow City by a whimsical little girl named Suzie Rainbow, who appears from a book in his toy chest.

The plot carries you through Little Toby's journey across Rainbow City, an extraordinary land where every element, from cartoon characters to musical instruments, comes to life. The adventure that Little Toby and Suzie embark upon together is a mixture of awe-inspiring, captivating, exciting and vibrant.

Some women are working from home while homeschooling children. Others are essential workers. Women across the world are remaining indoors for safety reasons. Pandemic life is different, and everyone has adjusted. However, self-care is not optional."

You May Have A Condition Known As Tinea Versicolor.

  Clear Up Your Blotchy Skin With New Cream Proven To Help Get Rid Of Skin Patches Caused By Tinea Versicolor

Discover how Mizell Mais, a mother of three and entrepreneur, developed a skin creme to overcome blemishes and spots from the fugus that causes Tinea Versicolor. In her early thirties, she developed a spotty rash that covered more than 40% of her body, including her face.

Being dark-skinned, the rash was much lighter than her natural complexion, and the itchy spots were flaky and dry. The rash is called Tinea Versicolor. It's caused by an overgrowth of fungus that naturally occurs on human skin, and is most prevalent in humid or tropical climates.  To learn more about how she created her VanishClear Sulfur Cream to clear up spotty skin caused by Tinea Versicolor Click Here

Join your children with the turn of each page while they become fascinated with the journey they will embark upon with Little Toby and Suzie Rainbow as they travel through Rainbow City’s Emerald Green Forest.

Little Toby's Rainbow was created for readers aged six through twelve and contains a total of fifty-six pages. It is available on Amazon; the Kindle Edition and Paperback Versions are available. The paperback version is colorfully illustrated ensuring that children thoroughly enjoy the artwork while being entertained by the plot.

Elizabeth and Russell Dilligard were born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Elizabeth's love affair with Motown at a tender age led her to write poetry and songs. Russell's love of acting and performance fit in perfectly with her creative skills.

Elizabeth and Russell began writing songs together and pursued a career in the music business for some time in hopes of one day making it big. They had started their label; however, they did not achieve significant success in the industry. Because of this, they turned their attention to writing books, movies, and television shows.

By creating this children's book, the authors' objective was to invigorate children's imaginations. In today's digital age, where everything is made readily available at your fingertips, children have lost their sense of adventure and creativity at the touch of a button. With Little Toby's Rainbow, the authors intended to reignite the flame in children to be curious and adventurous while using their own imagination.

With a style that combines a fun, light-hearted approach with a child's curiosity and sophisticated intelligence, Elizabeth and Russell have delivered a simple approach to a very timeless message about a child’s sense of adventure.

In light of the pandemic, where it has become increasingly easy for children to feel low, the authors believe nothing is more precious than a child's imagination. After reading 'Little Toby's Rainbow,' they hope that children's innovation, happiness and imagination will increase exponentially.
