Preparing for your kids to go back to school? Award-Winning Children’s Book Author Stephanie Sorkin makes the transition fun with her fabulous back to school books dealing with topics relevant for school age children.
Her first children’s book Nutley, the Nut-free Squirrel is a whimsical tale about a squirrel with a food allergy. Nutley’s message of community support and friendship resonates with all students. As the parent of a child with multiple food allergies, Stephanie donates 100% of the book’s proceeds to F.A.R.E, an organization dedicated to food allergy research and education.
Her latest book, Am I a Unicorn was written to teach children the valuable lessons of embracing one’s uniqueness and accepting others for who they are inside. The story touches on self-esteem and diversity, ultimately teaching the important lesson of accepting one’s individuality.
Sorkin, a mother of 3 herself, was inspired to write “Am I a Unicorn?” as a way of opening up a discussion about what it’s like to be different, hoping that children will realize that as much as everyone wants to be accepted, it’s most important to accept ourselves. Rather than use all Unicorns in the story, she chose to use a diverse array of animals to give children a chance to see that not everyone’s the same before even reading a single word of the book.
