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.

Read this Book: "The Show Must Go On"

Chicagoan Marion Elisberg Simon's memoir, "The Show Must Go On" is a page turner.  Her philanthropic efforts date back nearly a century yet her message is clear to all of us today. (And you may recognize some names in her book if you are a true Chicagoan and love society events).

From bringing educational opportunities to disadvantaged young people at Cabrini-Green to helping to create the Kidneymobile program and raising money to ensure that Lincoln Park Zoo will always be a free zoo, this no-nonense gal gets things done.

Simon threw herself into helping others, often masking personal sadness, and over her lifetime and today showcases a positive, focused, inspirational power and contagious spirit to get things done. I say "hurrah!"

Simon is speaking at The Women's Athletic Club on April 11 and other locations in the future. I hope to see you there. 

In the meantime, Simon's book is available on Two thumbs up!
