It has been said that life isn't a matter of milestones but of moments. This is true about I Love the Skin I'm In as it turns one today!!!
Though the past few months have been met with challenges for my family, somehow the book has been able to continue to fill the hearts of many and bring a certain comfort in knowing that sometimes when we are at our deepest hollows, our day can be brightened with the simplest things.
I Love the Skin I'm In is being used in quite a few school districts as well as some private schools. Hackley School, for instance, recently used I love the Skin I’m In as their official multicultural book for the month of January and February. A few other school districts have ordered the books for their entire district, from elementary to high school. When moments like these present themselves there is a needs to celebrate. I have had my fair share of quiet celebrations.
I feel equally blessed that I have also been able to visit a few schools, share the book's message, and just get to hear from the young readers.
There were books signings in Toronto, Canada at the Africentric School as well as Chapters, at Barnes and Noble, City Center in White Plains, New York, twice, at various Schools in the Tri-State area, and other private signings. I think that through all this, the thing that stock out the most was when a little boy from one of my signings, came up to me and said, "I am so pleased that you wrote this book because ,I Love the Skin I'm In"!
I am also pleased to announce that the book has been converted into an ebook format and distributed on Amazon.com. I am so pleased that the book is part of so many people's lives.
