Right from Sally Sue’s chair she explores a Wacky World that reminds her of herself, different and bold. She finds strength to stay true to herself even when the kids in her world have tried to change her.
Children will not only be able to relate but they can also use this perspective to navigate through their own feelings of being different and quirky. Adult readers may also find this book encouraging and helpful.
This whimsical world is inspiring and so is Sally Sue.

I learned the coping strategies I teach to others to help me deal with the trauma in my life be it recent or 30+ years ago, because we may be able shut the doors on our past and we may be able to block them out of our thoughts, we may even be able to take medication to ease the pain.
But, in order to truly overcome the trauma in your lives, and in my own life, is to have long term solutions through meditation, positive thinking, confidence building talking with someone you can trust, and other grounding techniques and coping skills; not just band-aids to cover up the wounds.
Come on by the Millbury Barnes & Noble on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 from 12 noon to 3pm to meet these talented authors!
