Lil Herbie's Book Series

Herbie's New Home

Being a grandparent is an amazing job. Having a grandchild that has some challenges can be hard. Herbie was challenged with stuttering, not quite an unfamiliar challenge to his grandmother. She too was challenged with stuttering as a young child. Herbie's grandmother was determined to make the challenge a lot easier for him, by writing this very affectionate story for Herbie.

Children who stutter will experience many different emotions on any given day. Becoming frustrated can be an acceletrator to their inability to vocalize their thoughts. These fun books will allow your child to see what he or she can bring to the lives of others, and how special they really are!

Herbie Goes To School

This is book two of the Lil Herbie Series Book Collection aimed at children ages four to ten.


Herbie's family has moved to another state and bought a new home, and now Lil Herbie must go to a new school and make new friends. He is afraid and doesn't want to go. He fears all the kids will laugh at him because he stutters. But he finally goes to school, and soon he realizes it is not as bad as he thought.

Often the thing you fear the most turns out to be just in your own mind. Whatever kids are dealing with, weather it be stuttering, low self-esteem, or anything else, each child's voice matters, and they should always know they are special too.

Herbie's New Friend

Herbie’s New Friend is book three of the Lil Herbie Series book collection aimed at children ages four to ten. It is a perfect story for parents, teachers, and caregivers to teach kids that everybody is not created the same, and that’s okay because we all are unique and special. All the Lil Herbie Series books are geared toward social-emotional learning, teaching kids about compassion and self-love.
