Children’s author and kindness advocate, providing schools a positive approach to encourage good behavior. PJ empowers children to be adventurers in kindness, so they can grow up to be loving, kind and respectful to themselves and to others.
PJ’s character, Sophie G Wanderlin, is a one-of-a-kind adventurer, who teaches children that they are special, that their big ideas matter and that kindness is an adventure. Sophie and her companion, BOB the Cat, along with Sophie’s friends, are on a quest to make the world a kinder place. All their adventures are centered around the “Colors of Kindness”, which is a way for schools to encourage good behaviors.
PJ has read to over 3000 children across several states, wearing her rainbow socks and spreading her influence to help change the direction of our children’s future. PJ's work is aligned with positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) set forth by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) influencing future generations to be loving, kind and respectful to themselves and to others.
