Stories from the Heart
with Purpose in Mind

Inspired by her children and a calling in her heart (read the full story here), Shelby started the Pals with Purpose series with hopes of instilling good values and life lessons into children’s books through colorful illustrations, whimsical characters, charming rhymes, and memorable stories. Giving Heart Books donates a book for every book purchased and gives 10% or more to charities and people in need. Check out some of the organizations here. Shelby hopes that her books can be one way to plant seeds in small souls where they learn about and spread kindness, love, and generosity around the world.

As the friends work together, Kaylee discovers not only her own unique purpose but also the most important lesson of all: that regardless of your skills, gifts, or talents, what truly matters in life is your heart.
