Help Kids to be Courageous

I love children's books because illustration with words can become the most beautiful message. And if animals are some of the main characters, all the better!
If you haven't already seen it, pick up the book "Courageous Gilbert the Groundhog" at Local author Regina E. McCarthy and her illustrator, Sue Dettman, created a wonderful book of characters and important messages--including
anti-bullying! It's a great way to empower kids and build self-esteem. WTTW - TV (11) did a nice piece on it when I did the launch PR awhile back.
Unfortunately, bullies can be found everywhere. It's getting close to Back to School time, so pick up the book in case you need to bring up this tough topic with a young person. The groundhog is very brave and the book is an awesome tool to get kids talking about what's going on at school or on the bus.
Blue Stone Healing Books are developed to help hear the hearts of children so they may lead healthy lives as adults.

Happy 4th!

Happy July 4th weekend, a great time to celebrate independence!
I have been enjoying my new PR consulting business that I started setting up 6 months ago and focusing on events, non-profits, pet causes & services, senior housing, new products and sports.

This week was a great one with Chicago Sun-Times and Chicagoland Tails placements for Greenview Place, an Assisted "Living" Lifestyle senior center, and a lot of social media placements for clients-- plus the start-up of a hardhitting advertising campaign. The Chicago Triathlon is coming up in August and is a fabulous event and NoThrow

The West Loop neighborhood is booming in the summertime, with fests and outdoor restaurants. Oprah's studios is two blocks away and a new L stop under construction at Lake & Morgan.

Have a great summer!
