Kids and even adults will love the eight heart warming stories included in this book that are based on true accounts and illustrate how saying something as simple as “You’re Totally Awesome!” can make a huge difference to someone. Included in the book are hands-on exercises at the end of each chapter. These engaging activities, which are tied to the stories, will help kids learn to acknowledge the people  who make a difference in their life such as friends, teachers, and parents and even combat something as negative as bullying.
