Grandchildren Share Through A BOOK by ME

This week we are targeting grandchildren of Jewish Survivors, WWII Veterans and Righteous Gentiles. Please forward this newsletter to friends at Jewish Federations, schools (publlic schools, private schools, home schools, Hebrew schools), synagogues, churches, VFW, nursing homes, etc. Young Authors are wanted with a special emphasis on grandchildren writing their grandparent's story! Surprisingly, only two of the 70+ children's books in the Holocaust Series have grandchildren sharing their grandfather's story". We would absolutely love to see more of this in the future so if you know a young person whose grand parent has a story to tell, please forward this newsletter to them as a challenge.

A BOOK by ME Meets Girl Scout World Thinking Day

BOOK by ME was on the scene at the Girl Scout World Thinking Day in Davenport, Iowa on March 10, 2012. Girl Scouts invited us to set up a booth to teach something about the country of Poland. Since many of our book subjects are from Poland, it was our privilege to share the story of Irena Sendler, a Polish woman who made a difference during WWII!

We talked to hundreds of girl scouts and their troop leaders about the possibility of using young authors to capture important stories from their community. Over a dozen young ladies signed up to become young authors on the spot! Way to go Nikki, Madis
