Cue the music! Cue the happy dance! Today I celebrate the launch of The Kindness Machine! March 22, 2022 will forever be the book birthday for my first book.
Today I celebrate this book with my husband, the illustrator who helped bring this book to life! We celebrate with our kids, who the book is dedicated to, and who genuinely seem so proud. We celebrate with our parents, friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors who have been incredible cheerleaders and supporters.
I am beyond thankful to everyone who played a role in allowing this dream to become a reality: beta readers, editors, proofreaders, and all of the “:55 Sprint Writers”. I am thankful to Alexa Bigwarfe at Purple Butterfly Press for seeing something special in the manuscript and sample illustrations and giving my husband and I the opportunity to create this book. I am thankful to the entire Purple Butterfly Press team for all of your support, dedication and ability to answer all of my questions.
Please help me celebrate by telling the book lovers in your life about The Kindness Machine. Purchase a copy today for yourself, teacher, family member or to add to a Free Little Library to be part of the CHALLENGE. Share pictures with your family/students enjoying the book. I look forward to reading your reviews and seeing your pictures today and into the future. Purchase your copy here!
On Goodreads I shared, “I wrote The Kindness Machine because as a mother and a teacher, I want my children and students to be a lot of things, but when you peel back what it is really important, it all comes down to kindness. This book celebrates the power of a teacher, an eager class, a lifelong concept and the importance of being kind to others and also to ourselves. Thank you for being part of this journey. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. It is my goal that this book helps to continue the kindness ripple in homes and classrooms around the world.”
“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
