WINONA, Minn. – After raising kids and having grandkids and teaching music to dozens of children, Ruth Bures knows a thing or two about children. In her new book “I’m So Glad There’s Someone.” Bures hopes to help both parents and kids find positive ways to discuss their feelings without judgment. The 30-page book, illustrated by Amy Kleinhans, has been issued by Orange Hat Publishing of Waukesha, Wisconsin, whose specialty is children’s titles. Price:  $19 hardcover, $15 soft. Finding the right words, Bures said, can validate a range of emotions from anger to loneliness, from sadness to happiness.
