The Giving Me Children's Book by See Beautiful Founder, Lydia Criss Mays, Ph.D. ~ $10.00
This book is “dedicated to the family and friends of Trey Lefler, whose giving saved lives.” Inspired by Trey Lefler’s giving spirit and decision to be an organ donor, I wrote this story to start conversations about the life changing act of giving.
Once there was a boy...and the boy loved giving. So begins a story of the ripple effect of giving. Children understand naturally what Mother Teresa often touted: “It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.” Kids “like” to be good and give. Building upon this inherent lifeskill, in The Giving Me, children follow a young boy and his natural acts of giving. Within each page, Readers - both young and older-ish - experience the ways giving comes full circle and ultimately saves lives. The Giving Me helps young children understand the importance of giving and empowers them to make a difference in the world.
