What do you do when you cannot find the book you want in the bookstore because it does not exist? Most people would let it drop, but not 6 year old Sami FitzGerald....
A natural extrovert, Sami loves people, enjoys helping others and loves to learn. Being home-schooled, Sami has been blessed with the ability to attend seminars and events with her parents. While other kids where coloring or doing something to keep themselves occupied, Sami was paying attention. Without knowing it, she was learning from some incredible teachers, such as Jim Rohn, Bill Bartmann, Artemis Limpert and Jeff Crilley. Sami has taken this knowledge and incorporated it into her desire to help others.
At the age of 6, Sami created “Colors Decorate the World” to benefit the children of St. Jude's Research Hospital. She asked friends and family to help by donating coloring books and crayons, and was pleased to learn that her endeavor lead to boxes upon boxes of art supplies arriving at St. Jude.
Sami’s lifelong promise is to make the world a better place.
It was this promise that sparked the search for a specific type of children's book in early 2007. Sami made a simple request. She wanted a gratitude workbook much like the ones her parents use. However, a search of the internet and bookstores yielded no results. Not one to take no for an answer, Sami simply told her mother that they could create the book because she was sure other kids would want one as well. And with that, "Fish Sticks, Books and Blue Jeans - Teaching kids to be thankful for everything (yes, even fish sticks) everyday!” was created.
"Gratitude, the act of simply being thankful for the people and things we have in our lives is something every one should practice. Unfortunately, children miss out on this wonderful experience because they are focused on the things they feel they are lacking….such as the new toy they see on the store shelf or the hottest fashion trends flashing across the television screen." - from Fish Sticks, Books and Blue Jeans
Come meet Sami FitzGerald and learn first hand what has Alexander J. Berardi, bestselling author and host of CounterThink.TV saying, "Everything I need to know about happiness, I learned from a six-year-old. Fish Sticks, Books, and Blue Jeans is a subtle and inspiring reminder to us all: If the only prayer you ever said was, "thank you," that would suffice."

When I grow up I have decided to be a “big kid” instead of an adult. What made me decide to do this? I watch my mom and dad and all of their friends have fun, but I still think they are missing out on the good stuff kids get to do…. I think there should be an option to grow up but still do kid things. This would make the world a better place because everyone would be having fun. In the world full of “big kids” everyone would get to do stuff like: Play outside everyday. Don’t just… Read more.
