“THE GOLD EGG”
This children’s book by Dan Wyson, written under the pen name, Ule B. Wise, was the 2019 Purple Dragonfly FIRST PLACE AWARD WINNER!! The Gold Egg” is a beautiful read-aloud book written for children but with a message for any age. It is a story of courage, perseverance, and discovery.
The story begins as Devan and his friends are playing games near their favorite tree. An old man passing by tells the children that a gold egg lies in a nest at the top of the tree. The kids tease the man and go back to playing their games but Devan determines to find out if the story is true. Though the climb is difficult and at times painful, he eventually reaches the top. What he finds is not at all what he expected. Devan learns a very special lesson, known only to those who are willing to climb. Much like Dr Seuss’, “Oh the places you’ll go” This book is written for children k-12 but has been enjoyed by adults as well with its message of working for success.
Dan Wyson’s other children’s book, “The Magic Violin,” teaches young people to follow their dreams. Both are available on this website or directly from Amazon.com, as well as in our St. George office.
