EXCITING NEWS: New Zippy book in the Zippy Series 

book cover Zippy's Club (2)

Zippy’s Club was nominated for the Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award 2015.  Please use this link and vote for Zippy’s Club. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

ZIPPY’S CLUB invites kids to be part of the anti-bullying team. It teaches them how to overcome bullying with kindness and to celebrate one another’s differences. The book includes a section from a nationally certified counselor to help initiate conversations with kids about bullying, as well as a letter from Candida telling her personal story. In Zippy’s Club, Candida shares that while we can’t control how others treat us, we can decide how we act toward them. Both she and Zippy encourage us to be the type of people who lifts others up, instead of knocking them down.

Zippy’s Club Motto: The ones, who treat us the worst, need our kindness the most.
