Book Tour & Giveaway

I am over the moon excited to share with you my review of Maria Dismondy's newest children's book Chocolate Milk, Por Favor!  This amazing little story is wonderful for helping kids learn to be empathetic to others.

As soon as I got this book in my hands I read it to my 5 year old son.  He LOVED it!  As I read it to him he would make comments about how Johnny wasn't being very nice and how he wouldn't do that or how Gabe was sad and that he would play and sit with Gabe at lunch.  He also told me that we should treat everyone the way we want to be treated.  It's important that we keep driving home that our Actions Speak Louder Than Words  and that we need to help those that are different from us feel welcome.

Maria Dismondy is an award-winning author, specializing in
books about challenges children face. A topic close to her heart,
Maria’s own childhood experience inspired her first book, Spaghetti
in a Hot Dog Bun. Maria’s dedication to empowering children with
courage and confidence has reached new heights, touching the
hearts and hands of children the world over. Grounded in her belief
that all children deserve a voice, Maria’s latest book, Chocolate
Milk, Por Favor, drives home the important message of celebrating
diversity with kindness, inclusion and empathy. As a sought-after
speaker, Maria spreads her message by presenting at schools and
conferences across the country. She holds degrees in education
and child development. Maria lives in southeastern Michigan with
her husband, Dave, and their three book-loving children.

Book Synopsis: Johnny is a big fan of school but that all changes when the new kid, Gabe arrives. Gabe doesn't speak any English, and that doesn't stop Johnny from going out of his way to be unkind.
But what will Johnny do when Gabe starts to make new friends? Will he join in the fun of making a new friend or turn the other way? Johnny realizes a powerful message in this story where student differences are celebrated. Read to find out how chocolate milk plays a major role in the discovery of the real universal language.

You are definitely going to want to have this in your book collection and Maria has been so gracious to allow me to giveaway one signed copy of her book.
