When we co-wrote the #1 hit song, Dare To Be Me...we KNEW it was special. 

I showed up to a songwriting session at my producer pal, Nathan's place.  Before he could tune his guitar I shouted,

"We need to write a BOOK today.  NOT a song.
Well...what I mean is we need our
SONG to be a BOOK."

He listened to me go on and on with my sales pitch about how the message of "Dare To Be Me" was one that was NEEDED.  In my 10 years of being a kindergarten teacher, the need for positive and empowering social-emotional messages is needed NOW more than EVER.  
Nathan agreed. 

 And so...we wrote the book.

by the way...You are perfect.
Just the way you are.
Dare to be your own kind of amazing.
