What’s your inspiration?

As a parent and volunteer with young people, I noticed that some of the children’s books do not address realistic scenarios. Sometime kids cannot connect with stories that have “Mom in the field picking berries. Dad at work and grandma planting kisses on their foreheads. Some kids do not know their parents or any memories of their grandparents or family at all.

It’s important to let children know, “When things go wrong, don’t go with them.” If we don’t program the minds of our children, life will find a way to program them. We must begin programming to let kids know that they are stronger than their circumstances. The book series reminds children that they are special, unique and powerful.

I believe evil prevails when good men and women do nothing. This book series will help parents and school counselors saturate their student’s minds with good morals, character building exercises, and positive messages to build strong and optimistic children.


“You will love the innocence of Perfect Penny Brown. She has some pretty tough circumstances to deal with and she seems to always find a positive spin to her story. I believe we are all like Perfect Penny. Life can deal us some major hits, but if we use optimism and faith like Perfect Penny, in the end, we will be okay. If we use our imaginations and never let our situations get us down, like Perfect Penny Brown, we would think life doesn’t seem so bad. I know Perfect Penny Brown’s questions all too well; why was I born in an abandoned building on a floor? Why did my mother give me away? Am I trash? We all question our circumstances, but like Perfect Penny, I imagined a new life for myself and I created it. I am super excited and proud of my youngest daughter, Serena Brown Travis, on the creation of this character and book series. This will help your children get a Perfect Penny Brown perspective on life and help you, the adult, to always find life’s silver linings!” Mamie’s Baby Boy, Les Brown www.LesBrown.com

“I wish I had this series of books when my children were younger…”

“As an educator of 30 years I always look for books I can read my first graders after recess and during special times PERFECT PENNY is one of their favorite books. We need more books like “Perfect Penny” for our children and their parents.”

Mrs. Sabrina Garcia


This book is dedicated to the many children and adults who never heard positive words before or after your name. It is dedicated to the folks who never received a wink, pat on the back, hi-five, smile, or hug of encouragement. Perfect Penny was created to remind you of your greatness, your beauty, and unlimited value.


You are enough.

You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine.

You have greatness within.
