The Rosie and Friends; Pump up Kindness Book Tour!
April 1 2018
April 1 thru April 30, 2018Join us and Pump up Your Books for a Virtual Book Tour of Rosie's newest adventure, One-Of-A-Kindness.
Rosie and Friends are encouraging everyone to show kindness by sharing her one-of-a-kindness stories with the world!
The Rosie and Friends series are unique books, inspired by a once-in-a-lifetime tripled by the author's father to Africa with her 14-year old son Ray, who has special needs. Author Helen Hipp has created a very effective way to teach children the value of seeing things as they appear compared to how they really are. She presents the issue of being different from other children in a way that children can relate to and understand – how to find happiness in spite of the challenges everyone faces.
Follow along as we stop at different blogs to share our story and continue to spread kindness all month long!
