Children today face a multitude of challenges:  bullying, violence, stress at home, problems at school. 

I'm Deborah Krueger: author, Motivational Speaker & Gratitude Coach. I have written a book to help kids help themselves as they face these challenges: "The Red Pencil, a Dragon’s Tooth, and the Lost Treasure: A Gratitude Club Adventure."

It's the first book in a series, to be accompanied by workbooks. We plan to get it into the local schools, home-school programs, and 'in need' organizations for kids. We also plan to have it translated into Spanish to support our Hispanic population on the Central Coast. 

Some features about the children’s book: Starring three young school friends . . . learn how Randi, Ridge, and Casey discover the  “road to gratitude” as they encounter “sticky issues” that seem out of their control.  But are they really? Join us and find out! www.adragonstooth.com 


Meet the Author: Hello everyone. I’m an author, Gratitude Coach, Motivational Speaker & Certified Trainer. I rediscovered my vitality and realized my life’s purpose the day I found "Gratitude." When I realized just how much the "power of Gratitude'" was doing for me and could do for others, I wrote a book: “LET’S PLAY GRATITUDE! With Life’s Sticky Issues."

Now, I give presentations to teach what I learned, and to share the 4-step HALO Process I developed to overcome "life's sticky issues." My passion has turned into my profession. Please visit my website: www.letsplaygratitude.com

I have seen the misery that can be caused to victims of bullies. The Author of this book is selfless in her quest to help these victims. Thank you Deborah for your sacrifices to help our children!
