Summary: Linnie Mae is a 9 year old girl who lives a comfortable life in the suburbs with her parents. She has not spent much time in the city and definitely does not understand the homeless. Her mind is filled with negative stereotypes and scary images of those who sleep on streets. In one night, her attitude completely changes. During a volunteer excursion with her family, Linnie Mae meets some interesting people and hears some intriguing stories. In the end, she makes a connection with those she met and learns that all people are people. A homeless person is a person with a story just like her. LINNIE MAE’S NEW FRIENDS is a kid’s picture book about investing time in others, offering a helping hand, and personal self-discovery.

“What a great message about both volunteering and breaking down stereotypes! I look forward to many more books to come!”
“A good book for anyone to read, not just children. Our entire family has read this, and I will be sharing it with others to read as well. We are all guilty of judging people we don’t even know. This book is a good example of how you should get to know people before you put them into a specific category. Wish our kids would see more of these stories on television as well, instead of what is on. Great storyline! I wish there was even more to read. Bring on more!”
