Little Kids do BIG Things

Our series is entitled Little Kids Do BIG Things. As parents and educators, we know children love to be helpers and problem solvers. Our ongoing cast of characters teaches us that working together respectfully, through trial and error, but never giving up, is the BEST way to problem solve. The payoff? They grow in character and happiness. We love that they always share their accomplishment with the community. We, the authors, honor their efforts by donating a portion of book sales to a complimentary non-profit.

Beverly Hills Fire Department
Open House


Kudos to the Beverly Hills Fire Department for another so fun and informative Open House. They always go all out!  Especially thrilling was the firefighter doing aerial gymnastics as he descended from a 100 foot ladder!  


For a little folksy flair, there was story time. The kids loved Big Shaggy Max as we shared a reading of award- winning  children’s story, LOVABLE GRANDPA JOE,  dedicated to our brave and courageous firefighters.
