“Sherri delighted children with her reading of Is My Cup Empty? The book has a positive message that benefitted the students. As a football fan I enjoyed her Harry Dawg’s Game Day Rules which teaches good sportsmanship.

—Diane Kellum, M.Ed., Atlanta Speech School Media Specialist

“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston patients and families were so grateful to have Sherri Graves Smith come share her story, Is My Cup Empty? – it was a positive and inspiring message that stayed with them. Many thanks to Sherri!”

—Laura Schiener, Special Events, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston

“Sherri is beautiful person, inside and out! Her message is very inspirational!”

—Audra Segers, Director, Child Nutrition Program, Autauga County Board of Education

Is My Cup Empty? is a heartfelt children’s book about being optimistic, helpful and mindful. Being optimistic can be difficult for both children and adults. When life throws us challenges, it can be hard to always see the positive side of things. However, when I hear stories such as Sherri’s, I am inspired to be more optimistic and to teach this same optimism to my own children.”

“As much as we parents desire and work hard to give our children an enjoyable life, much of the success of our efforts depends upon the attitude of the child. Sherri Graves Smith does a wonderful job of coming alongside parents in the adventure of raising up the next generation…the positive message and great illustrations in Is My Cup Empty? make it a great addition to every child’s collection.”

“Interviewing author Sherri Graves Smith at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Theater in Los Angeles was one of the highlights of an incredible year for me thus far. Her book IS MY CUP EMPTY? is a MUST HAVE for anyone with children or those who teach children. I highly recommend it! I bought a dozen myself! Go get yours! Her GAME DAY RULES series is also high on my list!!”
