"I am Emmanuel" is finally here!

We are so excited to tell you about Kelly’s debut children’s book I am Emmanuel!!

Yes, Ruben’s Shoes founder Kelly Strongitharm has written a children’s book and she is donating all proceeds from the book to Ruben’s Shoes Society.

I am Emmanuel is about an eight-year old boy living in the Dominican Republic who likes to run, jump and sing his way into your heart! He has trouble listening sometimes, but that's because Emmanuel is busy dreaming big dreams, speaking up for acceptance and making friends all around the world!

Doesn’t that sound like a great book for the kids in your life??? In I am Emmanuel you’ll get an amazing story, gorgeous illustrations and you’ll be supporting Ruben’s Shoes Society. It’s a win-win! Kelly has already sold over 200 copies of her book in the first week of pre-sale (amazing!) and we'd love to see that number continue to grow.

For Canadian residents click here to pre-order your copy now. Books should be arriving in late March, just in time to add to Easter baskets. The book will be on Amazon at the end of March for all our international friends who would like to order a copy (or two!).

We can’t wait for you to fall in love with I am Emmanuel.
