Promotion in Motion: Carol Brown, and Sassy Pants

Posted by Lisa Lickel on July 24, 2012

About the Author:  Carol Brown was raised in a rural farming community in Iowa. A retired teacher, she and her husband reside in Grand Rapids, MI with her elderly mother. Carol enjoys nature, music, playing the piano, children, reading, writing and storytelling.  She began telling stories when she had enough brothers for an audience!

Her second children’s book, Sassy Pants Makes Amends released April 17. She does not have one mention of God in it, just lots of biblical principles!

Welcome, Carol. Tell us what you love about this book.

How the humor disarms defensive reactions. While people are laughing the lessons land! I love it when I hear people quoting certain sections.

What’s the main thing you learned during the process of writing and publishing this book?

When God is in it, the project is a joy; if I am doing it on my own it is hard work, tedious, laborious and it lacks a certain spark that hooks a reader and keeps the pages turning! I just don’t have as much to say.

What should your readers discover and want to share with their family and friends after reading this book?

That no matter how badly you have messed up, when you are willing to apologize, ask forgiveness and make amends, it can restore relationships. As Old Clyde would say, “But you have to really care. You have to really want to fix it!”

About the Book: Sassy Pants Makes Amends

Sassy Pants’s bad behavior pushed everyone away. A close encounter with an electric fence broke off the stone that had been forming around her heart; it helped her begin to notice and care, but too late. No one trusted her.

How do you fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it? Old Clyde knew a way. He asked little Molly lamb to “be friendly” even though she didn’t trust Sassy Pants. The two of them put their heads together—but not too close—and came up with a plan to make amends,

—to think of something that was important to Gerald, Maude, and Kitty Cat and make it become important to Sassy Pants too—

—something that would go way beyond sorry and give the offended friend reason to trust her again.

 

Follow Sassy Pants as she works to repair the friendships she broke!

Learn with her how to fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it. Find out how Sassy Pants learns to apologize, ask forgiveness and make amends with the help of two special friends. Making amends is not easy, but having friends is worth it!

 

Talking Points For Sassy Pants Makes Amends

  • Words can hurt
  • Actions can hurt
  • What an apology is and what it does
  • Why we forgive and make amends
  • How we make amends
  • The rewards of amends
  • How to honor one another

Sassy Pants Makes Amends is published by Tate Publishing and is the second of a series of four. It will be available in most retail bookstores, online or order direct from my website www.fromgodsheart.com along with the first in the series, Sassy Pants.

 

Written for 3-5 graders, but younger children, good readers in 2nd grade and adults all enjoy the story! Older children, it’s not cool to read little books—but it would be safe to read to the little kids!

Interestingly, folks in Recovery groups snap it up for the understandable explanation of amends!

A parent teacher manual is available at www.fromgodsheart.com. Click on downloadables and look for Parent/Teacher Manual.
