    The Pink Monkey Book Could Become a Child’s Best Friend ATLANTA, Georgia—Meet Luis, a pink monkey who is picked on by others because of the color of his fur. The Pink Monkey book is the first in a series written by Kari Wells, successful entrepreneur and Bravo TV’s “Married to Medicine” star. The book takes children by the hand into a Colombian jungle adventure on a discovery of self-assurance. Children learn about how to be happy with who they are through the mischievous adventures of Luis. “I wanted to write a book my own children would read,” Wells says, “with a message about diversity and acceptance.” When Wells wrote about Luis, she chose pink fur for him because of the characteristics the color pink represent: the sweetness and innocence of the child in all of us; acceptance and unconditional love. She believes the latter is true of all of us no matter what color our fur is. Wells later learned of Cici Clovis, an advocate for families with gifted children. The Hoagies’ Gifted...

Of course, as is the magic of children’s books, lessons are best learned while being entertained, and especially alongside a trusted friend in a safe place. Kari also developed “The Business of Living,” a life asset coaching strategy based on the idea that “we all have the potential for financial success.” Kari is sharing her own financial success and fame with charities that are near and dear to her heart: Doctors Without Borders and Thriving Children Atlanta.< Less
