"I love the theme of this book and what Stephen eventually came to understand thanks to his patient teacher! “I will not give up before I give it a try!” Isn’t that great advice for each of us, no matter our age?" - Lynne
"This is a great book for children who struggle with school work or confidence in their abilities to learn." - Susan
"This is an excellent book for kids of all ages! The illustrations are excellent and so is the story line.
The author did a great job writing the story in a way that all readers can connect with it.
I'm also a first grade teacher and will definitely be adding this to my read-aloud shelf!" - Jordan
Follow Stephen's saga as he practices kindness and learns that "no good deed goes unpunished."
Available in ebook, paperback and hardcover.
" A fun story kids can connect with about good deeds going wrong. We've all had good intentions that didn't quite work out when we acted on them, and this book portrays that in very relatable way. I'm sure kids will have a good laugh and experience some relief seeing that they're not alone in having had their good deeds gone wrong. "
" This is a great book! Very cute, but also funny. I was laughing out loud at times. It’s a character-building story for children to learn kindness and perseverance- to keep trying and not be hard on themselves no matter how many let downs they experience. "
" Even as adults, we have good deeds that go wrong. You can’t help but root for Stephen as he tries his best to be kind to everyone he meets. While those plans are derailed at every turn, it’s heartwarming to see him pick himself up, dust himself off, and move forward. It’s a lesson we can all learn! "
"This is a great way to use the current circumstances to remind kids about some of the basic, fundamentally good behaviors. And I know a few adults who could use a refresher!"
"This easy-reader is a great source for parents looking for ways to teach their kids about adjusting to life under quarantine. But the lessons Grandpa teaches go beyond life as we know it now; they can be applied to life during any circumstances.
Parents and kids will enjoy reading and learning from this book!"
"What a great book to help children cope with life right now! I love the skills presented, especially the ones that encourage having good character! Must read!"
Join Stephen for another heart-warming story as he learns a valuable lesson on practicing. He also learns to change the way he sees himself!
