Proceeds from the first two printings of this book joined with UNICEF USA and MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” in an ambitious campaign called K.I.N.D.: Kids in Need of Desks to provide desks to eager young learners. Every day, 70% of children in Malawi, Africa struggle to learn while sitting on the ground. Giving them a desk empowers their educational journey and fuels their dreams for the future.

Countering the Bully-in-Chief
How do you teach children to be civil when they’re bombarded daily by name-calling, profanity, and bullying? And worse, what if much of that bad behavior comes from the leader of the country?
This is the dilemma confronted by Angela Michele Tilghman in her book, “I Can Only Imagine: The Schoolhouse and the Presidency After 44.” Aimed at school principals, Tilghman’s book presents a variety of scenarios–kids swearing, picking fights on social media, throwing rolls of paper towels at people, and boasting that they’re smarter than their classmates–and provides suggestions for conversations that let kids know these behaviors are “not okay.”
“Yes, the President of the United States is supposed to be a role model,” her fictional counterpart tells a group of children, “but here at our school, we have rules to follow. You need to remember that you are to respect yourself and others in your words and actions. what we say to others can hurt someone’s feelings.”
With lively illustrations by Almar Denso, “I Can Only Imagine” delivers a potent message about how educators can help children learn respectful behavior despite bad influences. Let’s hope the White House is listening. June 2019
