We Are Different, We Are The Same

Rosie the Hippo books help elementary age children understand themselves and others and can be utilized as an opportunity for self-reflection, with thought-provoking questions and fun activities.

Virtural Visits

Helen is happy to schedule virtual visits with classes or schools via Skype. These tend to be rather informal, fun, and open. Visits tend to work best when the group has read all or part of at least one of her books and when questions are prepared in advance.
