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.

Secretary of State Jesse White's birthday bash this week was great fun!  Ageless and full of energy, Jesse even included his famous Jesse White tumblers as part of the entertainment at Carmine's and in the middle of Rush Street.  I kept running into people I know and particularly got a kick out of the fact that he has some female students on the tumbling team!  (Jesse even did his incredible headstand.  (That's him heading into it below in the picture).

Lou Canellis was a great emcee and even our town's "Fabio" bopped by. The big surprise was Governor Quinn's arrival.  One guest summed it up well, "If you are judged in heaven by the number of trees you have been able to plant during your life, Jesse White is responsible for forests."  And that about sums it up, doesn't it?!  We all better start planting.
