My gust on today's "A Book and a Chat" is Sheri Fink a #1 best-selling, award-winning children's author, the creator of "The Whimsical World of Sheri Fink" children's brand, and an international speaker. Sheri writes books that inspire and delight children while planting the seeds of self-esteem that can have lifelong benefit.
Sheri was a Marketing Executive who enjoyed her job, but wasn’t feeling passionate and excited about it. With her husband she crafted a plan to leave Corporate America, which she did in July 2010. She as not sure what she was going to do, just that she needed to create a space to change her life. Following attending Jack Canfield’s (chicken Soup for the Soul) Breakthrough to Success conference Sheri started her own journal that became her first published work "Dreams Come True: Your Daily Journal for Maximum Success & Well-Being"
Many read this and wanted to know what else Sheri had written, so she dragged children’s story written years before out of the draw and the rest is now history.
This first, award winning and soon to appear on the stage story “The Little Rose” launched Sheri into the world of being a number one best selling international award winning children’s author.
About “The Little Rose”
The Little Rose is a timeless, heartwarming story about embracing who you really are. Finely detailed, irresistible illustrations bring to life this endearing story of the Little Rose growing amongst a bed of weeds.
Teased by the ugly weeds around her, the Little Rose nearly gives up but then learns to accept and love herself for what she really is, a beautiful rose.
The Little Rose inspires children to embrace who they are despite their current environments.
In 2012, The Little Rose won a Gold Medal for Best K-3rd Fable in the Readers Favorite International Book Awards.
This success was followed by “The Little Gnome” and her latest book “The Little Firefly”. All have been met with much praise from young and old alike.
About “The Little Firefly”
The Little Firefly is an enchanting tale about a late-blooming firefly who can't wait to be all grown up. When all the other fireflies are glowing except for the Little Firefly, she discovers that true friends will love and support her just the way she is. This charming story helps kids learn about love, friendship, and acceptance.
With a Little Gnome activity book underway and a new story book about “The Little Seahorse” planned for next year there is nothing but continued success ahead for Sheri Fink.
