We are All Green on the Inside:
Amidst Appalachia’s fall foliage and vibrantly hued tree canopies, Jenna Stone published author, innovator, Fulbright Scholar, producer, teacher, and mother created We are All Green on the Inside, a first edition children’s book that teaches how kindness, understanding, and respect can become deeply rooted, as our differences connect us and instill a true sense of belonging.
As the leaves frolic together in the crisp fall air, their differing colors raise doubt, distrust and discrimination, yet they learn that no matter what color they are on the outside, they are each “All Green on the Inside.” Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Abraham Mendoza, this multicultural story has also been adapted for curriculum use in Preschool and Elementary School environments, as the spirited leaves teach tolerance, friendship, cooperation and inclusion.
We Are All Green on the Inside is available now on Jenna Stone's website. Jenna is also available for speaking engagements, book signings, and special events, both nationally and internationally. A fifteen-year Creative Writing and English teacher, she addresses many timely topics and engages audiences of all ages with positivity and the core spirit of this leafy bunch.

Recommendations for We Are All Green on the Inside
I have someone I want to introduce you to who’s VERY talented/creative/cool - the fabulous fun and fearless Jenna Stone. She has a kid’s book I think you should take a look at. This story is about Appalachian leaves who begin to change colors and experience discrimination due to fear of "contamination from the leaves that have already changed". The valuable lesson that these leaves learn as the story culminates is that no matter what color they are...they are "all green on the inside" which is very timely in an age of "teaching tolerance" and appreciating diversity. - Bestselling Author - Karen Salmansohn
