Gabrielle Pratt’s new book, I Can Help, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498472029; $20.99, hardcover, 9781498472043; $4.99, e-book, 9781498472050) was written to teach children the importance of showing compassion and appreciation toward an ill person. The story follows Brittany, who goes to sleep over at her Grandma Val’s house. During her visit, she gets to spend time with Aunt April who has cancer. This gives Brittany the perfect opportunity to demonstrate her appreciation and love for her aunt. Through simple acts of kindness, Brittany shows great compassion – thereby teaching a great lesson to all readers.
“I hope young readers actually reach out to others with small and simple acts of kindness,” states the author. “Since so many kids are tied to the Internet, video games and cell phones, they must be encouraged to use the human touch to reach out to others.”
Gabrielle Pratt has spent decades mentoring youth – actively involved in various church and community based activities that target youth and see the need and importance of enriching the lives of others through kindness. Various ministries included Sunday school, singing, Summer camp and vacation bible school at her local assembly. She credits these activities with having had a profound impact on her during her childhood years and would like to see today’s youth similarly benefit.
