Book DescriptionAll leaders must transmit a message that inspires changes in attitude and action among their followers. Whether in the family, at work, in the community, in education, religion, or government, leaders must instill values which motivate their followers to move toward what is worthy of respect and honor. First of all, however, the leader must have a clear understanding of his or her values.
Author Kristi Kremers has done it again. She has created more than a book. These pages unfold with experiences to captivate the hearts and minds of children. In fact, they often do the same for their parents and teachers. As a parent, you may have wondered how to instill positive values in your children. This book provides an eclectic toolbox that you can tailor to the age and circumstances of every child. Its active learning strategies are fun and fascinating in both the home and the classroom.
The book brilliantly combines principles, patterns, and play. The well-written explanations, beautiful artwork, and enjoyable activities focus on a common objective. A Leader Has Values also teaches children that they must recognize when NOT to follow a leader. Let’s face it; many world crises could have been avoided if only people knew when to follow and when to go their own way.
This little volume teaches the meaning of values and explores the types of values we must acquire and clarify. Ms. Kremers includes quotations from such esteemed philosophers as Gautama Buddha, Thomas Jefferson, Jim Carrey and Elvis Presley. It has also incorporated the wisdom and traditions of Native Americans. The author uses a case study of Chief Hole-in-the-Day and the Ojibwe people with discussion questions focused on their values, leadership qualities, and traditions.
From this heritage comes the teachings of the seven grandfathers of the Anishinaabe-Ojibwe. They include love, humility, respect, generosity, truth, wisdom, and bravery. These prized values serve as a foundation for interaction between family members. These creative discussions, worksheets, and activities are designed to help children personalize the value concepts taught throughout the book. One remarkable quality of the book is its application of values across various cultural backgrounds: Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, and American pop culture.
This fascinating collection of insightful resources will become a family heirloom for those using it. It is enough to cause a teenager to set aside a smartphone and have a conversation with her parents!

BE HUMBLE FOR YOU ARE MADE OF EARTH. BE NOBLE FOR YOU ARE MADE OF STARS.Character virtues are not automatic for children. They must be learned, absorbed, and received deeply into the heart and mind. They must stir a vision of personal value from within. That is the passion behind author Kristi L. Kremers’ writing. This book, her latest one, inspires both children and adults with a sense of their personal, intrinsic value. It is the story of a song – a song about life and leadership.
The message to a child receiving this book is about the song – the song that welcomed them into this world. That song rejoices in the sparkle that child gives us, even as it gives us glimpses of future blessing to others. The song celebrates with us in our triumphs and comforts us in our struggles. It saturates us with truth about who we are and why we are here. It shares insights from ancient traditions that awaken a child to the power of our words – or even our silence. It even reminds adults that kindness is always possible.
The book enables us to envision our too often hidden potentials that need to be released. It even paints the portrait of how our love for others can continue after they are gone.
The second half of the book is filled with thoughtful activities and discussions to have with your children. The format of this section is varied, using poetry and the biographies of how leaders in various fields have impacted the world. It overflows with ideas for reinforcing the truths of the book: asking questions, sharing a party, journaling, or watching a video.
The author’s model for leading children to love is three-fold. It includes mindfulness and well-being, self-esteem and self-knowledge, plus values and ethics. Visit Kristi's website to find out about even more resources – www.leadtolove.com.

Who Is A Leader?: A mindful approach for family & classroom discussions
“Who Is A Leader?” is a first of its kind children’s book on leadership. A traditional children’s picture book is coupled with family & classroom discussion guides and activities to promote mindfulness and leadership at home and in the world. The book showcases the leadership styles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Mother Teresa and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.
If you were challenged to explain who a leader is, what would you say? Could you explain it so well that a child would understand in a moment, but an adult would need more time to think?
This little book is a storybook for children and a book of wisdom for adults. It is a description of a leader, someone who has a mindful vision that others do not yet see - someone who opens the eyes of those same people to see past the limited horizon of their experience into the boundless realm of dreams. Through images and simple words, the author captures the essence of what a leader is. She nurtures a fresh and fulfilling hope for those who have leadership responsibilities but have forgotten what a leader really is.
