What's Most People About

Publisher Summary

Michael Leannah wrote Most People as an antidote to the scary words and images kids hear and see every day. Jennifer Morris’s illustrations provide the perfect complement to Leannah’s words, leading us through the crowded streets of an urban day in the company of two young children. We see what they see: the hulking dude with tattoos and chains assisting an elderly lady onto the bus; the business man helping the girl who has fallen from her bike; the family showing concern for the homeless woman; all the myriad interactions of daily life. Most People is a comforting response to the dreadful news reports that surface far too often in our world today.

  • “When you see something bad happening, you may soon see someone trying to help. The helper might be you! Someone is always there being good, because being good is what most people do.”

Who Wrote Most People

Michael Leannah
Verified creative

I am a former elementary school teacher, a father and grandfather, and a writer. Goodnight Whispers is my second children’s book. My first, Most People, came out last year and won the Moonbeam Award for Peacemaking. Two more picture books are coming in 2019. I live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, with my wife, Geralyn, and my dog, Tonto. I keep a guitar next to me at my desk. When I need to take a break from my writing, I play a song or two. Then it’s time to go back to work.
