I have written and illustrated two published children's books: Billy the Baaadly Behaving Bully Goat and the award-winningThe New Bear on the Block.

I have read these stories in many classrooms, and children have shared amazing stories with me about instances when they have jumped to conclusions or judged someone before they met them. Other kids have shared their experiences of being the new kid in a school or neighborhood. These discussions serve to remind us how important it is to respect each other and to always treat others with kindness.
