Ventura, CA, February 07, 2024 –(– Michael Shields, who has taught children’s Sunday school for over twenty years in churches around Southern California and opened young minds to God’s story in fun and heartwarming ways, has completed his new book, “Teresa’s Dress”: a charming tale that follows a young girl who receives a beautiful dress from her grandmother and refuses to take it off, even to take a bath.
