This unique and colorful book will inspire young imaginations while helping children build a strong Godly character. “The Grand Prairie Independent School District is proud to have one of its longtime educators continue her legacy by giving back to the children as a published author. Dorothy’s wit and imagination will feed the minds of young children for years to come. I feel privileged to know Mrs. Calhoun and our community is fortunate to be the home to such a talented, lifelong teacher and friend to all children.” —Dr. Susan Simpson Hull, Grand Prairie ISD Superintendent, Grand Prairie, Texas “Fascinating approach to teaching young children the importance of character and the implication that our choices have; not only on ourselves, but people we love, care for, and even at times on those we do not personally know. Dorothy Sweet Calhoun did an excellent job in delivering her message. Children will gain a colorful insight on the importance of being confident and accepting that we all have a special task to fulfill in life.” —Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, United States Congress, Washington, D.C. “Great book! My grandchildren love it! Dorothy shows a good example of getting the message across to the children.” —Mr. Brock Sloan, Greer, South Carolina
