While I created the Small Hands Creating Hope project as a way of raising money for the American Cancer Society, it’s been fun to see my six-year-old daughter Emma put our copy of the book to use. She has spent hours scouring the many projects, and has plans to recreate every single one!
For her first project, she picked The Purple Girl book that was submitted by Kitchen Counter Chronicles – and then turned it into a series! The Purple Girl does get cancer at the end of the first book, but – as in my life, and hopefully all cancer patients’ lives, someday – she gets better.
The purple girl grows up, meets a green boy (who isn’t quite as dedicated in his wearing of green clothing as the Purple Girl is in wearing purple), and they get married and have baby girl twins. I love the pregnant belly on the cover of the third book:
I am so pleased with how the Small Hands Creating Hope book turned out. It is truly inspirational – and full of fun, creative ideas for kids. If you haven’t already, please consider donating at least $15 through this link to the American Cancer Society. As a thank you, we will send you a link to download the ebook, as well as links to purchase a paper copy, if you would like.
