Fun Freetime: October Story Monsters Ink

Jamie Lee Curtis is a true Hollywood veteran. After spending decades making us laugh, making us cry, and even scaring us a little bit on screen, she turned her hand to writing children’s books, and captured the hearts of our little ones as well. Jamie’s books address core childhood subjects and life lessons in a playful, accessible way. In this month’s issue, she tells us about her latest title, This Is Me: A Story of Who We Are & Where We Came From—a story about emigration, immigration, and the idea of leaving the old behind for the promise of the new.

Also in this issue, we meet children’s book author Stephan Pastis, whose Timmy Failure series is nothing short of a success; Lucy Cousins, whose lovable little mouse Maisy has captivated children for the past 25 years; and Bob Salomon, who has spent the last eight years recruiting professional athletes. Not to play sports, but to join him in his efforts to make a difference in the lives of children. That’s a touchdown, in our book.

Our special contributors this month are Shirin Zarqa-Lederman, who talks about Michele Borba’s latest book, UnSelfie, and the subject of empathy, and Julianne Black, who offers some much needed advice for busy creatives.
