About the book:
Ways to BE from A to Z is about how we choose to show up in the world. Do we choose to be mean and hateful? Or do we choose to be loving and kind, in spite of what’s going on around us? We can’t control all the things that happen to us, but we can control how we behave in the world, and this book is all about teaching children – and the grown-ups in their lives – that we can make the choice to live with integrity and love. How do you choose to be?

About us, a mother/daughter team:
Lori Tuominen is a coach and educator,  whose practice is steeped in positive ways of being. She has a Masters in Positive Organization Development and Change, a Certificate in Positive Psychology, and is a qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher. She helps individual and organizational clients learn to flourish and thrive; to choose how they want to be in the world. She can be found trompsing around the hills of Western Massachusetts with her husband when they’re not visiting Minnesota, where their four grown children and their families live. She’s thrilled to have written this book with her daughter, Anouk Holm. To learn more about Lori’s work, please check out her website here.

Anouk Holm is an illustrator, cartoonist, and writer. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and son. She had fun illustrating this book for her mom, Lori Tuominen. Her art can be found on Instagram @anoukholm.
