Our Approach

Helping children with unique issues presents challenges to providing resources that help them understand the issues they face.  Children's books by Heart 2 Heart Resources address ADHD, loss and grieving, bullying, self-esteem, and being placed in foster care. Our products are written to inspire confidence knowing that someone else has faced these challenges and has excelled. The stories are told at a child's level with a combination of humor and compassion. Each story puts a positive spin on the situation offering hope, ideas, and coping strategies. There are educational resources and activities for parents, teachers, and counselors to use with the children. We strive to encourage children to believe they can do and be anything they set their mind to and to dream big. We are proud to participate in developing a love of books with Book Buddy.
