Children’s Book Author Spotlight: Kristi Grimm

Kristi GrimmWhen you first meet Kristi Grimm you notice right away that she loves people. She makes eye contact with you and reels you into a conversation that makes you feel like the things in life really matter. She has a lot of passion for people and for storytelling, too. Together with her husband, illustrator Dave Grimm, she has created several children’s books, which were inspired by her son who always asks “Mommy, tell me a story about…”

Kristi’s books are lighthearted but focused on important topics. The books are educational and teach lessons while keeping children’s attention fixed on the story, as well as on the bright and eye-catching illustrations. My daughter has been flipping through these books all week and cannot seem to leave them alone.

Kristi’s spirit and unique life experiences help her create stories with an uncommon and refreshing perspective.

Kristi GrimmI am delighted to be giving away three of the Grimms’ books to one lucky reader. The three books in the giveaway are below:

Mommy, Tell Me a Story About a FishPearl is a pink fish who was born with very curly fins. Clark is a smart little shark who makes fun of Pearl and her curls. One day Clark has an accident with a boat and suddenly he looks different, too. Pearls learns that her difference is for a reason and Clark learns that when you are friends, being different doesn’t matter.


Diabetes and Healthy Eating was co-written by Charles Mattocks, celebrity chef and nephew to Bob Marley. This book helps make diabetes more understandable and less scary to kids while helping educate families about health eating.

DiabetesMommy, Tell Me a Story About What Daddy Does“Well, this is where our story must start. It’s about a Chimp with a very big heart.” In order to find out what Daddy does, you will have to learn about Charlie the Chimp too because they work together as a team to keep our world clean. Soon you will be swept into the world of recycling and learn how you can help Charlie too.
