The book also shows how some of the 1 billion children who live in poverty survive and how those in the U.S. to make a difference in their lives. Each story highlights a special gift that can help a child and his/her family overcome poverty.
“The book was created to help parents gently introduce their children to poverty and show them how to help,” said Renee Targos, co-author of the e-book. “When children learn they can make a difference in solving big problems, like world hunger, it gives them a sense of confidence and purpose. Learning about other cultures also gives them greater vision for their own lives.”

The blogs will encourage parents to practice patience, kindness and other fruits of the Spirit, while introducing a new chapter of the children’s e-book each day.
