"You don't have to do 'something great,' you just have to do something": New Children's Book
Seth Pietsek thought that he was writing a business book about how peoples' worth is understood and valued in the working world but, instead, his nine-year-old daughter Sofia unwittingly led him to write a children's book.

Pietsek, a longtime communications professional and high school speech and debate coach who recently took a position at McMurry University, was looking forward to the extra writing time that he is afforded by working at the university level. But Sofia had a different idea. For her, her dad writing from his home office was really just an opportunity for the two of them to hang out more.
And that's when the author realized the irony of writing a book about valuing people when he wasn't fully valuing the opportunity he had to spend time with Sofia and her siblings, Jaxon, age thirteen, and Hudson, age eleven. He wanted to bring these lessons to a younger audience and, he says with pride, "to brag on his own kids."
Samantha Strong is a girl who dreams of being a superhero—of doing great things—and who practices for that future by doing old-school physical training with her dad. But the revelation comes when she realizes that her ideas of who qualifies as a superhero and what qualifies as a superpower have been limited to the fantastical and unattainable. Samantha's superpower turns out to be empathy, the ability to see and feel when others are hurting or need a friend, and the willingness to act on that empathy.
