 Local Teacher Illustrates and Publishes Two Children’s Books


Robbie White, a teacher at Fennell Elementary for 37 years, has published, “The Pretty Moon”
and “The Good Shepherd”.  Robbie said he
drew and painted the illustrations around 1980
but they have been in a
drawer for 30 years. In 2007 he pulled them out and began working on
them again. It took three years for him to finish the books and prepare them for publication.
“The Pretty Moon” is an old English
lullaby that was handed down for generations in the
Robertson family.
“The Good Shepherd” is the 23rd Psalm illustrated with pictures of children.

Robbie said that in 2009 he developed an application based on “The Pretty Moon” that runs
on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The program
was accepted by Apple in June 2009 for
The App Store and has sold in
ten countries. The Pretty Moon App includes the option of
listening to
Robbie’s mother sing the lullaby or the option of turning the pages with a swipe of
the finger. Next Robbie wants to develop a Good
Shepherd App and start illustrating a new
children’s book. If you
would like more information and a preview visit Robbie White’s website
