Black Author to Release 3rd Installment in Best-Selling, Award-Winning Picture Book Series

Lil Herbie is back again by popular demand!

Sherikka Myers, author of Herbie's New Friend

Nationwide — African American author Sherrika Myers uses her past to inspire her books. She grew up stuttering and was constantly ridiculed by her peers, but now she works diligently with children who stutter, are bullied, have low self-esteem, and lack self-confidence. In her third book, Herbie’s New Friend, Herbie, the main character learns what true friendship looks like when Reggie, a new kid at school, stands up for Herbie after bullies ridicule him for his stutter.

Not only does Reggie stand up for him, but he also instills wisdom beyond his years—that everyone is created differently with talents that make you special in your own way. Equating Herbie’s stuttering with his own poor eyesight, Reggie convinces Herbie of the truth: that nothing is wrong with them, and they are perfectly unique as they are.

The Lil Herbie Series is aimed at children between the ages of four and ten. Herbie’s New Friend is book three of the growing series and remains a perfect story for parents, teachers, and guardians to share with their kids. The entirety of the Lil Herbie Series books are geared toward social-emotional learning, teaching kids about compassion, having empathy for others and self-love.

“I want to help improve African American children quality of life by breaking down communicative and social barriers,” said Sherrika. She also created her very own anti-bullying African American mascot name “Lil Herbie” for kids to resonate with and learn from.
