This children’s storybook follows the journey of one small stone picked

up by a child, gently washed and painted, then hidden for another child

to find. Finding Sally the Stone brings such joy to this little boy that he

gathers his friends to paint other stones to hide at various animal exhibits 

at the local zoo. While hiding these newly painted stones, the children

learn about kindness, sharing, and friendship. As the story concludes,

learn how these beautiful acts of kindness and sharing come full circle.

 

You will enjoy the colorful, whimsical illustrations as the book captures

the wonders of childhood. Perhaps you might start painting and hiding

your own stones to join in this global movement.

"It takes a world of those being kind

  to show the world how to be kind,

             one small stone at a time."

Sally Schnarr was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. As a mother of three and grandmother of five, Sally knows first hand the excitement of childhood learning. She wrote this story to bring to life the global movement of stone painting, spreading kindness, joy and laughter to others through the eyes of her five grandchildren. She chose the setting of a local Zoo, where she has spent countless hours exploring with her son, Michael Jr.

Local Market Launch for Sally the StoneTM

Sally Schnarr has been visiting local schools and communities around Madison, WI reading Sally the StoneTM to classrooms and school assemblies. Through generous Individual and Corporate sponsors, over 11,000 copies of her book have been left behind for children and libraries to keep. Promoting childhood literacy and discussing the important aspects of kindness with children have never been more crucial. Getting children to read at a young age promotes a life long love for learning.
