I cannot rave enough about this remarkable young woman and her award winning book The Little Skunk Who Was Afraid to Stink! Brielle presented her story to Santa Barbara Police Activities League families and it was WONDERFUL! The message speaks at the heart of what some many children feel these days and encourages them to be themselves. The children were excited to share their passions and dreams and to take pictures with the author. Truly an unforgettable experience. Brielle is welcome at PAL anytime!!!”

Heritage Christian Academy was blessed to have Brielle Kelley visit our school. Brielle had the students attention from the time they walked into the room until the time they were dismissed. Her ability to make the students feel at ease created an atmosphere of trust and participation. There wasn’t a single answer given by a student that Brielle was not excited about and able to relate to the lesson at hand. The teachers and students loved the time spent with Brielle and I would invite her back to our school anytime.”

Students at Rivendell School had the pleasure of participating in a presentation by author Brielle Kelley. Brielle is a creative, inspiring young woman who shared her story and writing adventures with our students. Our students were inspired by her journey and dedication to her dream. As the principal of Rivendell, I attend numerous authors presentations. I was very impressed by Brielle’s ability to connect with her audience. If you want your students to have an opportunity to be inspired, and to learn that they too can achieve their dreams then Brielle Kelly is the perfect young author to have visit your school.”

Ms. Kelley’s presentation was engaging and powerful. The kids who attended were amused by Lenny the Skunk and enthralled with the idea that they could be grow up and be authors too.”

All the students at Notre Dame Catholic School in Kerrville enjoyed Brielle’s visit! She did a fantastic job engaging the students from PreK to 8th grade! She read a part of her book and then shared with the students the process of having a book published. Her energy and excitement could be felt by all the students! We are so thankful for the message that she is sharing in her book, “you are just perfect the way you are.”

The little skunk who was afraid to stink, is such a wonderful way to teach kids a lesson in life about courage, self-defense, and loyalty. My daughter explained the courage is about facing bullies, the self-defense is about standing up for yourself and others, and loyalty is about never abandoning your friends.”
