Life is a journey, a trail with a series of stops along the way that take us to our purposes. My life’s journey began in a coastal city in southeastern Virginia, in the US. Growing up there I found myself drawn like a moth to flames to books and the library.
After graduation from college, I continued along my path to purpose. I moved to Korea with my soldier husband, where I worked as a teacher. When I returned to the US, I began teaching pre-school age children. In the years that followed, I left the classroom to become an award-winning guidance counselor for the US Army and to designing award-winning leadership development training for a Department of Defense agency, where I mentored and coached mid-level leaders. The stops along my journey have a consistent theme of nurturing and helping others to become their best selves. When I think about it, transitioning from developing strong leaders to authoring children’s books that are steeped in positive, empowering messages was a natural next step for me.
The B. Harris Books concept centers around providing our customers with entertaining and character-driven books as well as reinventing the idea of “fun in learning” with quality products like our new interactive jig-saw puzzle game app.
Our store is not just a platform to buy children’s books, and games. We have also added customized T-shirts will positive and uplifting messages, and will shortly add several other learning and developmental tools to our product listings. Here at B. Harris Books we appreciate our customers and strive to bring you the best in books and products that will foster learning and social development.
