To help children integrate kindness, acceptance of others, and service to their community into their lives, and to provide under-resourced children with basic needs, along with an opportunity to read in a place to call their own.
Hello! My name is Sandy Ciaramitaro. As a teacher for most of my life, I've witnessed firsthand the positive impact reading has on children of all ages. When provided the opportunity and encouragement to read, children are better able to cultivate their imaginations, learn about new worlds, make new discoveries, and think for themselves. I believe providing safe spaces for children to both unwind and read is a basic human need. And I'm committed to helping provide that experience for all kids who seek a respite from this often-chaotic world.
I also believe that it is important for adults to help guide and teach children about the existence of universal virtues such as understanding, generosity, cooperation, and love. I believe this can be done in a fun and whimsical way so that kids can learn how to apply these models to their own lives. That is what inspired me to write The Good Eggs Children's Book Series.
I hold a Master of Arts degree from the University of Detroit Mercy and I have taught morality, ethics, and social justice courses at a private high school in Michigan. In addition to my teaching career, I have taught, developed, and implemented programs and curricula that are focused on helping children realize the importance of lives centered on love. The Good Eggs series is my contribution to supporting children as they learn about virtues, diversity, and service!
