About the Author
This is the first book by author Andrew Kranichfeld. He hopes that Karen's Garden will encourage children to plant their own gardens and see what grows. The book is also a tribute to his late mother, Karen, who was his inspiration for this story. In 2010 Andrew lost his sight and it is also his hope that this book can be an inspiration for others to achieve their goals no matter what their circumstances or limitations.

The book by itself is uplifting and inspirational but meeting Andrew was especially inspiring to teachers, parents, and students. His positive outlook on life, despite overcoming cancer and adapting to blindness, was contagious. He makes his audience feel comfortable and encourages participation. When my students were writing him thank you cards,one child was wandering around the room with his eyes closed. When I asked what he was doing he said he wanted “to see how it would feel to be blind”. I almost cried at the sentiment and compassion that Mr. Kranichfeld inspired in my students. We look forward to him visiting our school again.
