This is a book written for children and adults in a humorous fashion telling tales of Little MisFit about the Life Lesson – that Life Isn’t Always What It Seems. It is intended to demonstrate that all of us at some point or situation may find ourselves as a MisFit and also how learning Life Lessons can help us to build confidence and succeed in life. Thus, the book as one reviewer said: “Is for the child in all of us!”
In Life Lessons and Tales of Little MisFit – Book 1: “Life Isn’t Always What It Seems,” we are introduced to the main character as she narrates her first memory at the age of three and ties it in to Lesson 1. The book continues through tales about Lesson 1 through her fourth year of primary school where we leave her. Book 2 picks up with LMF starting her next year of school at the age of ten and learning the next Life Lesson that “Life Isn’t Always Fair.”
Many people growing up are often made to feel inadequate or not to fit in in situations, as a former probation officer, executive/life coach and professor, Dr. Susan Grunin, learned through humor and working with others – particularly children and young adults, how to fit in those uncomfortable situations. She believes that it is important that children learn at a young age how to manage these issues and to use humor to build their own self-esteem. Thus, she created, Little MisFit, (LMF) a fictional character, who through humorous tales, shares life lessons that she learns as she is growing up. Through these stories, LMF describes how she learned to overcome many life challenges and accept who she is as a person. Furthermore, the tales allow adults to share their own tales without coming off “too preachy” and to be able to share their own life lessons with their children and/or grandchildren or other loved ones.
