Description

“Love is kindness, love is giving, love is an action and not a feeling.” This week on The Malliard Report we are going to talk about kindness and finding courage with children’s author and speaker Wendy Gilhula - Website -- Wendy Gilhula Transcription



Creator of the Pika Bunny series Wendy is “…an educator, writer, and author…Wendy has created an innovative learning series that teaches understanding and kindness. Pika Bunny and the Thunderstorm, Pika Bunny Has a Big Question, and Pika Bunny says EEP features life lessons children often face in a complicated world and presents tools to help them navigate such complexities with bravery, understanding, and kindness. Wendy’s books are a yearly feature at the New York City Book Expo America and Book Con. Wendy has devoted over twenty years of her career to helping children and specializes in supporting creative expression. Wendy has a unique ability to relate to children in such a way that promotes excellence. Her books are constantly recommended by therapists, counselors, activists, and teachers.”



In this episode Wendy shares that younger children today certainly stand out from their older peers. They have a tendency to be more ethereal in their thinking and are far more adaptive to inclusivity. Wendy also shares that kindness begins within ourselves. We can’t expect to encounter it if we are not practicing it daily, and in doing so, the ability for that to spread is amazing. She has even developed an app that helps us keep track of this so that we can be more mindful of those around us. We set daily reminders with fitness apps, so why not a kindness one? Wendy also shares her experiences with being able to share her stories with children around the world, the sometimes-painful process of being a writer, and so much more.



You can purchase Wendy’s books through all major online retailers, or one of the expos if you happen to be in the area of one. You can visit her website wendygilhula.com where you can find her latest blog posts, excerpts from her books, and links to both the IOS and Google Play store where you can download her Pika Bunny Kindness Tracker. It’s a free app and it is a great reminder for little things that we can do every day to make this a better place.

I want to welcome everybody to this evening's Malliard Report, I'm so excited. But first before we begin, I've got to remind everybody that the views and opinions are those of the hosts and guests and do not represent any networks, sponsors, simulcasting networks or anybody else just remember views and opinions. Hate saying all that but cheaper than saying I look paying a lawyer. And if you have not been to Malliard.com, please come over today and sign up for my newsletter. You can get more insights from me. Less show stuff, more insights from me. Plan for 2020, that's the plan. My guest tonight is Wendy Gilhula, Gilhula. Second time, right.
