“Why can’t I just be small Austin and have small clothes, small teeth and live with my mom and dad forever?”—“I Am Not Selling My Tooth!”
Did you know that February is Children’s Dental Health Month? Kelli Nielsen and Kelly Hawkins do! These dynamic “Mom Entrepreneurs” of Washington State who sold over 1000 copies of their first children’s book, “You Will Always Be My Son” will launch their new book, “I Am Not Selling My Tooth!” just in time for two children’s museums to host the book’s launch during events that will focus on kids’ dental hygiene. Helping them get the word out is Mike Yeoman who will feature Kelli and Kelly Books for Kids on his “Mike in the Morning” show on KAPS (102.1 FM / 660 AM) on Mon., Feb. 9 at 7:30 a.m.
Kelli and Kelly will read and sign “I Am Not Selling My Tooth!” Fri., Feb. 20 at the Children’s Museum of Skagit County in Burlington, Wash. (1-3pm) and Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett, Wash. (6-8pm).
Cate Anderson, Executive Director of the Children's Museum of Skagit County (CMSC), said the museum is "excited" to host Kelli and Kelly because "not only does the book tie in perfectly with the theme in our museum, it really speaks to how many children feel about letting go of their teeth...and their childhood."
Author Kelli Nielsen and Illustrator Kelly Hawkins have been long-time supporters of the CMSC. They were brought up in Skagit County and raised their children there. Nielsen dedicates her new book to her “wonderful” son Austin: “Thank you for giving me the words.”
Hawkins credits her two daughters with giving her “inspiration every day.” Nielsen said, “We are two moms whose inspiring dream is to bring quality children's books to market.”
