A Unique Experience

An alternate school in Etobicoke was where the story of Unique Urial began. The children were excited to share ideas about how everyone is different and that that is a good thing! The story is now in their hands for them to add illustrations.

Yakkety Yak talks back!

Sandra visited a Grade 5 class in Cambridge to gather ideas for the story Yakkety Yak. This story is about how words can be used to hurt or to help. The students had some great story ideas and points on the importance of using positive words.

These books are truly helpful

As we head into the new school year, my son is learning how to identify his feelings of anxiety and nervousness, and he is learning how to manage his feelings. These books (Nervous Newt and Anxious Alligator) are truly helping him.

As an Occupational Therapist I feel it's so important to bring awareness to mental health, including with children. Thank you again.

Kindness Kangaroo Project

Everything Sandra writes comes from her heart, and my grandchildren love it when we read her books. Her Kindness Kangaroo project is AMAZING! Sandra is well on her way to a very successful series with this one. Helping kids get in touch with their emotions and understand other people's struggles, is a wonderful gift.
