San Antonio, TX, USA – WEBWIRE

A children’s book that transcends ages, cultures, and social backgrounds.

Working in the children’s department of a public library while in high school and college paved the way for Edward Martin Polansky’s career in children’s literature. The CPA from San Antonio, TX published his first book, a contemporary fable titled Oscar the Osprey: The Bird Who Was Afraid of Heights (AuthorHouse, 2015).
Illustrated by Jean Rosow, Oscar the Osprey is about the titular bird of prey who suffers from a peculiar phobia: fear of heights. Polansky gained inspiration for the story during a family vacation, when he and his family walked across a suspension bridge, which stands about a thousand feet above a river. His son, who had a massive fear of heights, exclaimed “It would really suck, if you were a bird and afraid of heights.”
Through his story, Polansky hopes to motivate readers, young and old, to face their fears and overcome their insecurity and low self-esteem. Even if their innate gifts do not manifest early in life, they could develop it as they grow up or move forward in life as long as they do not give up. Polansky imparts many motivational life lessons with his book’s recurring themes of identity and resiliency.
