My neighbor back in Mn, Julie Tschida, has just published this book. It is so rewarding for me to tell you about this book because I was involved with Julie when she first had the idea and I read what was probably the very first draft of the book. That was several years ago and now she has created it. For those of you with grandkids, this would be a great gift and educational opportunity. The book deals with some difficult things kids have to deal with. It is based on a true story in Julie’s life.
Julie says: “In my corporate and academic career, I met many people who were ill equipped to handle life’s challenges. I wrote this book to be a tool to aid those interested in helping kids develop skills to prepare them for life’s challenges. A story appropriate for the age group of 8-12 is followed by a number of exercises and resources you can use to discuss life issues with a child or to coach and mentor him or her. ”
“I hope you find the story inspirational and that it helps you help kids develop into healthy and productive adults.”
I have provided a link to the book here. Enjoy it!
