It’s #NationalDogDay!

Today is #NationalDogDay, which is a great time to mention that I wrote a book with Dr. Gary Weitzman of the San Diego Humane Society. It’s called FETCH! and it teaches kids specific skills their dog may be able to master as well as the science behind it.





My journalism background continues to lead me down interesting paths as a nonfiction author, especially as I pursue more STEM titles. This Natio

Quotes by Aubre Andrus  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“If you had to pick a favorite place where you live, what would it be? It could be an inspiring place like a beautiful park or a lookout point. Or it could be a library, a café, or even your own front yard. Once you’ve settled on a special spot, bring sketching, writing, or painting supplies to this place. Make sure you have a comfortable spot to sit, then observe your surroundings. Notice the details, from the smells and sounds to the emotions you experience, as you sit. Now try to re-create this space in the creative medium of your choice — a story, poem, drawing, song, comic book, short movie — whatever you want. Express yourself via your chosen art medium. It doesn’t have to be perfect. When you’re done, challenge yourself to share your work with at least one person.”
Aubre Andrus, Project You

“Take a trip to the library and browse the movie section, or browse through Netflix or YouTube. There’s a documentary on just about everything, right? Pick a documentary about a subject that’s always interested you, such as a certain event in history, a specific place in the world, or a person or career choice you admire. Now pick a documentary on a subject you know nothing about and weren’t really interested in before. It should be something you would never normally watch. Head home, pop some popcorn, and get ready for a double feature. Start with the movie you never imagined watching… You may be surprised what you learn.”
Aubre Andrus, Project You

“Mindfulness Tip: When you’re outside, take time to notice things that really call to you. Maybe it’s the color of a flower, the smell of freshly cut grass, or even an ant crawling on the sidewalk. Savor those things that you’re drawn to!”
Aubre Andrus, Project You
