Paw It Forward

My dog Ella and I are honored that Cara Warren, the lady behind Paw It Forward LLC, chose Ella as Paw It Forward's very first dog hero. I wrote a children's book about Ella and how she "Paws It Forward" with kindness. And she really does, too. These were not made up examples. This is a picture book for younger children--the first I have written for such a young age group! 

In the words of Cara Warren of Paw It Forward LLC:

Pay It Forward’s best-selling author, Catherine Ryan Hyde, was inspired to write Paw It Forward by her real-life dogs Jessie and Ella. In the book, Ella inspires kids to change the world through kindness by teaching them the concept of Paw It Forward through her adventures. 

Kids will learn what it means to Paw It Forward and come to understand how powerful kindness can be. Grade-schoolers can read Ella’s story on their own, with a friend or an older sibling, and with their mom, dad, or guardian. Everyone who reads this true story will be inspired to join the movement and empowered to change the world!
