Children’s Book-Zena’s Sixth Birthday- Lessons Learned!

This very popular 34 page self-published children’s book ( available in english and french) is based on TRUE experiences of a local OCDSB elementary principal, Mr. Kool, fittingly named by a former grade 3 student of his.

A grade one, six year old student has a near brush with serious injury or perhaps death, when she thoughtlessly darts in front of a moving school bus on her way to meet her father. Due to an exceptionally alert bus driver, the girl’s life is saved. This unique book, beautifully illustrated by Jessica Fleury was made available to the public in September 2016. The book won a Canada Book Award and is a must read for 4-12 year old children, parents, educators, and bus and van personnel. A portion of the sale of each book continues to support Kids Help Phone. The book is dedicated to bus and van drivers who work tirelessly on a daily basis to keep all students as safe as possible.
