There will be a virtual book launch for “Lunch Every Day” (KO Kids Books), Kathryn Otoshi’s latest book for young readers, on Tuesday, October 19 at 10:00 am Pacific Time.
Every day, Jimmy has “Skinny Kid’s” lunch at school. Under no circumstances will he be caught dead standing in this FREE LUNCH line. Even when called into the principal’s office, Jimmy just shrugs. “Yes. It doesn’t matter.”
Until a surprising act of kindness stops him dead. For a split second, a door opens in Jimmy’s heart. Who knows? Maybe he’ll just kick open that door.
Based on a true story, the book is dedicated to educator Jim Perez and “the lady who kept making all those breakfasts for him, day in and day out”.
“A sensitively told conversation starter for children about abuse, power dynamics, and compassion.” – Kirkus Reviews
