“S. D. Smith has the unique ability to combine easy-going humor with a wisdom that is both honest and hopeful. To meet him in person is to get an insight into the courageous optimism at the heart of his stories.”
—Heidi Johnston, Belfast, Northern Ireland
“S. D. Smith is funny, engaging, and full of wisdom for children and parents. My kids love his books and couldn’t wait to meet him and hear him speak. It was a really special event.”
—Randall Goodgame, Slugs & Bugs Family Music
“Whenever I have the opportunity to hear S. D. ‘Sam’ Smith speak, I always come away thinking and smiling. Sam has a unique ability to connect with his audience, whether with children or adults—he is personal, relational, knowledgeable, and engaging. But even more than that, he is motivated—he cannot hide his own enthusiasm for what he has to share. His connection with children is never just an act, but a genuine extension of his own life at home with four children. Sam is that rare combination of being a successful children’s author who also loves and naturally connects with kids, and that will make them want to connect with books and stories. He makes them think and smile.”
—Clay Clarkson, Author, Publisher, Director of Whole Heart
