Thank You for Visiting!

Caroline Brewer would not be who she is today – author of 11 books, editor of five books written by students, a former teacher, fearless literacy consultant, wildly successful tutor of children as many as 9 grade level behinds in reading, and founder of the Happy Teacher deliberate system -- if it wasn’t for children. Thousands of children, including 2nd graders who inspired her to write her first book.

Second-grade teacher Angeline Hall-Watts was a friend of Caroline’s when Caroline wrote a poem about hope and healing, shortly after 9/11.  Angeline wanted Caroline to share that poem with her students. Caroline was reluctant. She had adults in mind. But Angeline persisted, and Caroline finally decided to turn the poem into a story and the story into a book, called Kara Finds Sunshine on a Rainy Day. Caroline published the book on her own and donated all profits from the first 500 copies sold to charities supporting orphaned children in Uganda and homeless children in Nicaragua. A few months later, a boy in a group home for abused and neglected children in New Jersey, where Caroline lived, wrote that Kara Finds Sunshine “turned my life around.”
