Each digital story is read by the author, Britt Menzies, who brings the StinkyKids characters and situations to life through her engaging and colorful adaptations.
“I was motivated to write ‘StinkyKids Have a Heart’ because I was picked on and bullied as a child,” says award-winning children’s author, Britt Menzies. “When your heart is hurt by unkind words, it takes a long time for your heart to heal. I wanted to inspire young children to believe in themselves and make right choices, and know that the hurt will go away.”
“I love this book,” noted Kelli B. Ritter, Ph.D. and founder of Effective Parenting, LLC. “We all remember what it feels like to be hurt and left out by others. This book enables parents and educators to teach their children to be kind to others and take a stand against bullying.

Best friends, Britt and Jen are enjoying a fun summer day at the pool with their StinkyKids friends. While playing, the kids hear a familiar sound – the ice cream truck! When Jen tells Britt that she wants everyone to order the same flavor as hear because “that’s what best friends do,” Britt feels bullied and does not want to play with Jen anymore. Can these best friends be Leaders of Good and work it out, or will their fun day at the pool turn into a wet and sad afternoon? Will the other StinkyKids help Britt and Jen get over their troubles or will they all have to learn a lesson about what it takes to Have a Heart?
