About the Children's Bookshoppe Stop


TCBS is rooted in a vision to encourage children everywhere to courageously face life's challenges. TCBS is also rooted in a heartfelt desire that together, families will enjoy reading these poetic, colorful expressions of inspiration, these motivational books for children.

I, Jacqueline Hortten, President, owner and founder of "The Children's Bookshoppe Stop", have created 12 motivational books for school age children. These books present children from various backgrounds. Illustrated characters possess various abilities as well as disabilities. These characters face a variety of challenges. My books teach children to not be prone to giving up, but to strive to reach goals by putting forth their best effort, no matter what the challenge may be.

In this series, each book has a gift page whereby one can personalize each encouraging book. In addition, there are a few more lines available for a note.
