After six years of thinking about every word and every image, working and reworking every page of this inspiring story, our story has now available on Amazon. The video is of De’Ante opening the box of books from CreateSpace to see our book in print for the first time.
I repainted all the images, soaking thick watercolor paper in water, to honor the power of the flood waters, dipping the paper in brown acrylic paint to reflect the mud of the flood, and dipping the paper in blue acrylic paint to symbolize when the clear sky bounces off the water.
De’Ante has read his book to Kindergarten and First Grade Classes in Indianapolis. One student responded by saying “Maybe I can write a book.”
You can also help spread kindness by using the many ideas in our “Kids Kindness Korner” with your children, grand-children and students. Let us know what happens. Let’s flood our families, communities, country and world with kindness.
