In this little stinKer adventure, best friends Britt and Jen are enjoying a fun summer day at the pool with all of the StinkyKids. While playing Marco Polo, the kids hear a familiar sound…the ice cream truck. The StinkyKids excitement over these tasty treats quickly turns sour when Britt and Jen get into a disagreement over which flavor they should all buy. Jen tells Britt that she wants them to get the same flavor because “that’s what best friends do.” Britt gets upset as she does not like Jen’s bullying and does not want to follow her. Can these best friends be Leaders of Good and “work it out,” or will their fun day at the pool turn into just a wet and soggy afternoon? Can the other StinkyKids help Britt and Jen get over their troubles or will they all have to learn a lesson about what it means to “Have a Heart”?
StinkyKids Have a Heart is the third book in the StinkyKids series, which delivers another fun–filled story of learning from your mistakes and striving to “Always Be A Leader of Good.” Also enjoy StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors and StinkyKids See a Full Moon, available in hardcover print and digital formats.
Britt Menzies is a mother, wife and artist with a flair for originality. Inspired by her own two beautiful “little stinkers,” Britt is the founder, creator, and spirit behind StinkyKids®. While she was enjoying a career that allowed her to travel the world, she had always had a passion for art. The birth of her son inspired her to leave the corporate world and revisit her creative side. Today, a few years and a daughter later, the result is StinkyKids®.
Along with being a stay–at–home mom and entrepreneur, Britt is an active volunteer with Books, Bears and Bonnets, Inc., a non–profit organization founded by her mother in memory of Britt’s late aunt.
