How do you think Rebeccah felt? What can Ruby do to apologize to Rebeccah?
We asked these questions after reading an excerpt from our book to the audience at our Portland launch. Both boys and girls quickly raised their hands to answer the questions with their thoughts and ideas. It was so exciting to see our story and companion guide in action! The response from the crowd reinforced that our hard work and labor of love does result in kids learning to think about others and successfully solve social dilemmas.
While we shared our story, the audience delighted in warm cocoa and crispy cookies sandwiching smooth, flavorful ice cream. We were fortunate to be able to hold the release at Ruby Jewel Ice Cream in Portland. Becky was a gracious host who kept our listeners happy with yummy treats! Thank you for providing a great space for our Portland launch! It worked so nicely, we forgot about the rain falling outside.
With the excitement of the audience and the great ideas coming our way, we now feel energized to focus on book 2 of our series!
