A long time ago, I decided to live my life by paying it forward to others as often as I could. Encouraging others to do simple acts of kindness for random strangers has become my mission. This simple gesture truly makes a difference in the lives of others which makes my heart happy. As a new author, people and events have inspired me to write while sticking with the theme of “Paying It Forward”. My book is written for children 8-12 years old but adults can be encouraged also. This is something I hope that adults and children can read together and discuss how they may choose to pay it forward for others to benefit. A way to encourage readers to "Pay it Forward" I have included instructions at the end of my book that will allow you and your child to work on a project together and hopefully donate to a local charity of your choice.
