Jarrett Krosoczka, better known as a children’s book author, recently released his first book for young adults, an autobiography titled, “Hey, Kiddo.”
A couple of key thoughts from him, gleaned from Rebecca Asoulin’s article in the Christian Science Monitor Weekly (one of my regular favorite reads), “Illustrating gratitude on the page and in life” (link follows)”
Krosoczka: “I wouldn’t change a single thing about my childhood because it made me who I am… I’m grateful for everything that’s led me up to this point.”
Asoulin notes, “[The] author regularly makes the case for gratitude: A thank-you reminds both giver and receiver of their importance and connection to others.”
In a TED Talk, Krosoczka expanded on the gratitude theme: “A thank-you can change a life. It changes the life of the person who receives it, and it changes the life of the person who expresses it.”
“Hey, Kiddo” was a finalist for the National Book Award, and showed up an several 2018 “best of” lists.
“Gratitude just permeates my work because that is who I am,” he says.
