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.
