Jimmy Wayne To Release Children’s Book In November

Jimmy Wayne helps bring awareness to the plight of foster children in the upcoming children’s book, Ruby The Foster Dog, which will release Nov. 1 via BroadStreet Publishing Group.

In the story, Ruby, a mixed-breed puppy with an underbite, was abandoned at a shelter as a puppy. Ruby wonders if she will ever be adopted by a family. After Ruby encounters Mr. James, a hiker who stops by the shelter, she joins him on his journey. Mr. James is walking halfway across America to raise awareness for thousands of foster children in need.

On their adventure, Mr. James teaches Ruby about integrity, honesty, loyalty, faith, forgiveness, and trust,  but mostly she learns how love can rescue someone and forever change lives. As they walk along historic routes and locations throughout the United States, Ruby quietly helps Mr. James overcome the issues he’s been struggling with too. By the time they get to Phoenix (from Nashville) both of their lives are changed for the better.
