More About the Author

I love writing for women and families. I'm excited about the many positive responses I've had from my two new books coming out in March 2014--the non-fiction piece for mothers and daughters and a delightful, fiction picture book for girls ages 8 to 12. Both of these new works are heavily endorsed.

I'm on Facebook every week (www.facebook.com/FayKlingler) and love to hear from my readers. Also, I blog to my website (www.fayklingler.com) every week. I deliver by e-mail an author newsletter every quarter. If you would like to receive the newsletter, send me your e-mail address on Facebook. These three locations will soon show giveaways and special book launches for these two exciting, new books.

Format: Hardcover
Lu is an eleven-year-old girl, named for her grandmothers. She has a rich relationship with her grandmother. They play cards. They work together, and her grandmother is an inventive source of fun. The artwork is so good! Vivid watercolor portraits illustrate the bond between grandmother and grandchild. I love the love reflected in their faces as they face each other. From the first page I was drawn in, the fun Lu has with her grandmother keeps you turning the pages. The story is a circle. In the beginning you see the love and care that Grandma nurtures Lu, and then when Grandma needs her, the character and love that was so generously given to Lu comes back in full to Grandma. This book is as timeless as Love You Forever or Sammy and the Robots. I love to read and use the library heavily, but this is a book I will buy for our own family and give as a gift because its story of empathy and family love is so awesome. Congratulations Mrs. Klingler on a wonderful addition to the canon of excellent family books!

This is a beautifully written and illustrated book I can whole-heartedly recommend to parents--and especially grandparents--to read with children. It has a vital message: the power of words and self language and the effect it can have on our self esteem. Also, how everything is a matter of perception and how words can only hurt if we allow them to. I Am Strong! I Am Smart! is a sweet, heart-warming story about an 11-year old girl and her grandmother, and how they each help each other at their times of need. A lovely addition to any library shelf. Since the girl in the story is eleven, and there's quite a lot of text, this picture book is geared toward older ages as well. The illustrations are beautiful and perfectly complement the story. Highly recommended!

I thought the book was very well done. I loved the art, the grandma, and the self-talk lessons. I Am Strong! I Am Smart! brought a lump to my throat as I thought about being a grandmother myself. Though I only have one small grandson at present, one of these years I'll be old and gray like Grandma May in this book. I can only hope that my grandchildren will love me as Lu did her Grandma May, and like Grandma May, I pray that I might be able to make a difference in their lives.

This book touched on the subject of bullying in schools. Teachers are not always aware of what is going on. Luckily this little girl felt close enough to her grandma to reveal her hurts. The author did a beautiful job in weaving a cute story around these important lessons.

Having a strong support system is important at any age. I Am Strong! I Am Smart! begins as Lu is struggling with problems that children have. Her grandmother, who lives with Lu's family, teaches Lu how to deal with life's problems. She is positive and uplifting in teaching patience, handling bullies, and doing chores. Her messages of love and encouragement are amazing, inspiring, and appropriate for a young girl.

In a twist, Grandma has a stroke and it's Lu's turn to help her grandmother. She shows how she has internalized the messages as she encourages her grandmother.

This book is perfect for kids and adults. Some of the messages are needed for adults. We need to be reminded that we are strong and smart too.

I loved this new children's book I Am Strong! I Am Smart! The cute story of Luisa May and her Grandmother illustrates the love that they share. Grandma helps Lu learn lessons about loving herself by teaching her that she is smart and important after she has been bullied at school. Then when Grandma has a stroke, Lu turns around and helps Grandma realize how smart she is and how she can reach her goals of recovering from the stroke. This book would be a beautiful gift for a Grandma to give her grandkids or vice-versa. Any book that shares a message that every person is a special child of God and can be strong and courageous, is a winner. I will share this book with my family and those I know.

By Amy L on March 9, 2014
Format: Hardcover
At a time when grandma and grandpa are marginalized, and too often fall through the cracks. What a breath of fresh air it is to have sound advice and lessons from "grandma" on our shelves to influence young people. It doesn't hurt that those young whippersnappers can turn right around and hold us to our own words either!

As a child I wish I would have had this book to navigate all the difficult situations I couldn’t understand and didn’t have an advocate to help me with.

As a mother I am deeply grateful to have this book for my children.

Thank you Lu and Grandma May for sharing your story in such a simply delightful and full circle way.

This is a great book to help young girls realize the importance of self-worth. It's also a touching tribute to the bond between a grandmother and her grandchildren. Beautifully illustrated, "I Am Strong! I Am Smart!" stresses the importance of believing in ourselves. Sharing the story of a young girl and the influence of her loving grandmother during a difficult time, this book makes it clear that we need to ignore negative insults and develop a strong sense of self-worth. After the grandmother teaches this crucial concept, she suffers a slight stroke, and it is the granddaughter's turn to remind the older woman of her own importance in this challenging world.
