More About the Author
Natalie noticed that many children were having trouble making friends and finding acceptance from their fellow children. Most of them were experiencing bullying from children who think they are above them.
Being a young writer at heart, Natalie decided to write a bestselling children's book. This became her way to express her thoughts and her opinions about the obstacle that every child is undergoing. "Sewing a Friendship" is a book about how to make friends, how to build up self-esteem, and how to find acceptance from others. Indeed, the book became a wondrous success.
Below are the achievements of our young Natalie Tinti:

2. Bronze Award 2010 in Children Chapter Books hosted by Readers Favorite Book Reviews
3. Finalist 2010 in the Children's Picture Book Softcover Category hosted by International Book Awards

Natalie Tinti was only 9 years old when she started creating her masterpiece. "I didn't think of being a writer or an illustrator, or even a speaker at that age, even though I loved to draw," She said while speaking recently to a group of young people.
Natalie loves to speak with other young people. She wanted to help young people to fully understand the effects of their actions to others. This will help them realize the important part that they can play in helping others. "If more kids would learn to think this way, we'd have far lesser bullies in our schools and lesser children feeling alone, rejected, and unloved," she said.
After four years of hard work and perseverance, we couldn't blame Natalie if she would take a break. She spent most of her time in dozens of interviews and speaking engagements, and loads of newspaper press. She became so popular in the field of writing good books for kids. And yet, in spite of the popularity that she is experiencing, she didn't forget the reason why she wrote stories for kids. To reach out with children and to help them overcome the issue of bullying.
There are still more books ready to release and each book has its own moral lesson and values. Further, she has developed a new initiative to help other young people get their stories out, by putting together a children's book full of stories submitted by other children from around the world. The only question left to ask is: If she has come this far in 4 years, what will the next four years bring?

on the subject of friendship in a very playfull & exciting manner. The book is about
five girls and the problems they encounter with "sewing a friendship". They main story
revolves around the fashion show & "pink sleepovers". This book was written by a
ten-year old girl, who is able to describe the emotions & fantasies of the girls
her own age much better than any adult would. Thus, I would recommend this book to
any parent who wants to promote healthy relationships with friends in their child,
while keeping them excited and interested in reading.
The characters get to know Kiki, become friends and work together to accomplish their goals. The fashion show turns out to be a big success and they learn valuable lessons in friendship. I particularly like the beginning of the book where you will find an introduction to all the characters. Each character is outlined with information about their birthday, hair color, favorite food, and specialty just to mention a few. Each profile includes a full page drawing of the character. I know readers will be able to identify with the characters and maybe even imagine that they are one of them.
Did I mention that this book is authored and illustrated by a 10-year-old? Natalie Tinti has written this imaginative story that girls between the ages of 6 and 8 will love reading over and over again. The age appropriate vocabulary used by the author relates to how girls in this age group talk on a daily basis. Kids will relate to this text and will really enjoy the story.Read more ›
Sewing a Friendship starts with a picture of each of the characters in the book and character profile of each, answering the questions of birth date, age, family, eye color, hair color, favorite food, favorite color, and specialty. For the target age group Natalie is writing for, I found this to be a nice way to start the story. The reader then knows who the characters are that they will meet and have a visual they can refer to if they need to during the course of reading the book. As a young reader, I always loved character profiles, just a little snippet about the character outside of the actual text. Then I would compare throughout my reading experience to see if the author kept true to the profile, or whether I could spot any discrepancies.
The story starts with the wind blowing through town and checking on each of the main characters at each house along the way. Ms. Tinti has very unique character names.Read more ›
Once I judged the book completely and became contented with it more than my expectations, I handed over the book to my little one to explore and learn. Excited and enthralled on visualizing the colorful and interesting cover of the book, my little girl became deeply engrossed in the interesting tale of friendship. She could easily understand and count on the moral of strength in friendship and its importance in life as the characters of the story battled against the powerful with their strength of oneness and spirit of friendship. I wouldn't be shy to admit that even I spent few nights enjoying this beautiful tale of four little girls while reading out the bed time story for my daughter.
It is indeed one of those books which trains your kids with sound morals while they are busy enjoying their favorite colorful story book, thereby providing deep relief to parents like me who struggle each day to teach their children the true morals of life. Highly recommended!
