Where did you get the idea for "Thomas and Mia's Happy Tummy Hunt"?
Back in November 2012, I started a monumental health journey of my own. I was supremely unhealthy, out of shape and building a ridiculous amount of bad habits. My journey helped me to develop a much healthier relationship with food, exercise and life overall. That journey changed my entire life! When I think about how difficult it was to develop my own healthier lifestyle, I began to think “it would have been much easier to learn all of this as a child”. Being a published children’s author of two titles already, I thought I could find a fun way to incorporate my storytelling style with the mission of spreading healthy habits to children. Funny enough, I was visiting a local wellness center, Vivo Wellness Center in Livonia, when the owner asked if I would ever do a children’s health story. It was just the push I needed. I hope you enjoy, Thomas and Mia’s Happy Tummy Hunt!
What can parents and children expect from the book signing?
There will be lots of fun activities, giveaways, delicious nutritious treats and much more! There will be an opportunity to purchase the books and have a personalized message scribed by me.
What is the most important thing you would like for the children to take away from the signing?
It has always been my mission to inspire others. I would love for children to walk away feeling inspired, knowing three things: 1. They can truly be anything they want in life, 2. Nutrition and health can be fun, 3. Literacy can “come to life” because it is so connected to the world around them.
How can people help with the book signing?
We will need volunteers to help with the activities, giveaways and passing out of samples. Also, we would love to give the children who attend some great takeaways. Local businesses and organizations are invited to donate child friendly promotional products for the event. Interested individuals can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
