Kids are bundles of happiness and energy! Sometimes, even the smallest things can throw off their positive mindset. This book, Imani Visits the Zoo, talks about the importance of remembering how exceptional every child is.

Through her books, Andrea’s goal is to empower children to find their strength, confidence, and inner awesomeness located inside of them. Her powerful messages include embracing all diversities and cultures and spreading kindness and appreciation. It is never too early to learn about loving yourself and being proud of who you are.

Andrea Coates lives in Greenville, South Carolina. She lives with her two adventurous children, three dogs, and wonderful husband. Traveling, visiting family, and participating in the many activities in her downtown area, are just a few favorite things to do with family.
