ISHI, Simple Tips from a Solid Friend has been named as one of Amazon's "Best Books of the Month" for July 2016 in the 3-5 year old category! Waaaahooooooooo!!!
Come join me on Sunday, July 10th at 11:30am at powerHouse on 8th bookstore in Park Slope, Brooklyn for the very first book store reading of ISHI, Simple Tips from a Solid Friend! I will be there with my collection of rocks for you to make your very own ISHI rocks with! Hope to see you all there!
The ISHI book has been picked up by POW!, a children's book publisher in Brooklyn, NY! "POW! publishes books for children that are visually striking, imaginative, funny, and have an offbeat or edgy sensibility."
We are super excited to spread the ISHI love with POW!
ISHI arrived at the Beecroft Primary School in Australia where approximately 800 students read the ISHI, Simple Tips from a Solid Friend book as a part of the "Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds" program! Individual programs were written for students from Kindergarten to year 6.
The ISHI book is not available in Australia yet but one of the parents discovered the book (probably during summer vacation in Europe where the book is sold?) and brought it to the school and here we are! The Beecroft Primary School is active in promoting positive mental health strategies for their students and we are honored to be a part of the "Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds" program!
If you are interested in using the ISHI book at your school / organization, please email us at IshiSmiles@gmail.com
Have a HAPPY day everyone!
24,000 copies of the ISHI book are officially available at the Flying Tiger stores in the following countries!
I've never even been to more than half of these countries and I'm SUPER excited for people to read and share the ISHI book!
Wahoooooooo!!! ISHI was a finalist in two categories for the Indie Book Awards!
Gift / Specialty / Novelty
We made new human and rock friends!
The rocks you see in the above picture all have "birth certificates"!!!!! which includes the rocks' name, the meaning of the name, date of birth, zodiac sign, time of birth, place of birth, height and weight.
We talked about how the ISHI book was born, how the students practice mindfulness in their class (how awesome is that!!) and the students gave me suggestions for the next book :) What a fun visit!
We are VERY VERY VERY happy with the Silver Medal under the Gift Book category!
Happiness is a choice. Happiness is contagious. Pass it on. - ISHI the Rock
