'Eden and Her Happy' is a simple children's book, but it is filled with fact based research on happiness. The key of course is to 'show, not tell' and I love explaining this to children. A favorite part of my visit is when I ask kids to tell me about their pets and how their pet makes them feel. The hands go up like crazy and they smile as they share! I know how important pets are because I was lucky enough to have this big guy through some tough years!
Eden and Her Happy had a great school year thanks to so many generous sponsors. Illustrator, Charlie Martin, joined the fun and we involved students in the illustration process for our upcoming book: Henry and His Manners.

I love my sponsors! Cindy Spake with Quincy Health Arts sponsored books for this Happy 1st grade classroom at Washington Elementary in Quincy IL. It's great sending each child home with a copy of my books. Thanks Cindy and Quincy Health Arts!
