As a former teacher, plus a mom and Usborne Books & More Consultant, I love learning about authors. There are some incredible authors out in the world, but I have a few personal favorites.
One of my favorite authors is Michelle Nelson-Schmidt. If you love books, reading, and some fantastic positive energy, you’ll love her too! Michelle is one to follow to watch for future brilliant endeavors to come.
From her inspiring picture book, Cordelia, to her Wednesday night storytime live and all the stories in between, I could eat up everything Michelle Nelson-Schmidt is serving!
Michelle oozes positivity in all of her books…
Michelle oozes positivity in all of her books which include Cordelia, Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster, Dog and Mouse, and Bob the Unicorn. Her goodness shines further in her Facebook posts on both her business and personal pages.
At this time, with two littles at home, I don’t have much extra time to work outside of the house, but I know one day I’ll be working with Michelle to spread joy and literacy to local schools in my area.
When you’re having a bad day, this lady is one that will still see the sunshine. Recently she used some of her book drawings and canvases to sell to raise money for a sweet girl fighting cancer. She was able to give this child and her family over $4,000 from this online sale!
Here are my boys with their new canvases!
If you’re looking for inspiration for yourself or your littles, be sure to follow Michelle Nelson-Schmidt on social media. Just from watching her today, Live on Facebook, one of my favorite quotes was, “Does it excite you? Does it delight you? Say yes.”
In addition to Michelle’s quotable moments and inspiration, be on the lookout for her new young adult novel in the future, and I’d love to have you join my community, too!
That’s the Reading Scoop,
P.S. A couple of weeks after writing this post, I had the random and extremely exciting opportunity to host Michelle Nelson-Schmidt at my house for the night. I’ve chronicled my story in two blog posts.
