Book Details

From the creators of PepToc, the virally popular telephone hotline featuring pre-recorded life advice from kids, comes a heartwarming collection of 50 handmade motivational posters created by youth from around the world. This warm hug of a book harnesses the love and inspiration we all need to navigate our increasingly complex and difficult world. Following the immense success of their hotline, Peptoc creators Jessica Martin and Asherah Weiss invited youth from around the globe to make posters with messages of encouragement, hang them up in their communities, and submit photos of their work to share. The result is this collection of disarmingly earnest, often hilarious advice that only children could give. Whether it’s the California kindergartener who advises his neighbors to “be grateful for yourself” or the 8-year-old from Alaska who suggests, “If you’re frustrated, go get your wallet and buy ice cream and shoes”–one of these wise youngsters will prompt even the jaded reader to pause, reflect, and see things in a new light. A tangible reminder of our human capacity for hope amidst hardship, this colorful collection makes a thoughtful, uplifting gift for anyone who could use a pep talk.
