Grit: Your Child's New Favorite Motivational Book

It's important for kids to fall as that is how they learn to get back up; and to teach them that no matter what cards they were dealt, they can always succeed. That's why author Amanda Smart wrote Grit. It's a fun, illustrated, children's book about overcoming obstacles that kids, and even adults, of all ages will love. The book has a very important message: Whatever challenges come your way, don't give up!

Despite the hurdles thrown her way, she does all she can to accomplish her goals — she does not want life to pass her by. "Grit has gotten me through my own experiences," she says. "I wrote this children's book because it is something that everyone needs!"

She enjoys helping others and hopes to continue to do what she loves for many years to come. Amanda considers herself lucky to have a supportive family who has helped her. She currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts, and she loves to travel. She has visited parts of the world she never imagined she would.
