The Rosie Adventure series are unique books, inspired by a once-in-a-lifetime trip led by the author's father to Africa with her 14-year old son Ray, who has special needs.

According to Positively Different Author Helen C. Hipp, the second book in the series, Rosie and Friends: One-Of-A-Kindness, will highlight TLC (Tender Loving Crocodile) as one of the lead characters who encourages friends to show kindness, and to share their one-of-a-kindness.
