Hello HBE Families and Educators! I'm super looking forward to my visit on February 13th. There's a lot going on in the world, and we could all use more love and hugs! I'm a big believer that we're never too old for a good picture book. In fact, sitting down to read with our older ones can create a much needed time of connection, and serve as a conversation starter.

This page is set up for you to purchase signed copies of my books using your credit card, apple pay or pay pal. Online orders placed ASAP are greatly appreciated!! It helps me be able to pre-sign before the day of my visit 💖🤗📚

I Love You More (hard cover/jacketed)   $20 
I'll Hug You More  (hard cover/jacketed)  $20 
Te Quiero Mas (4x6 Spanish board book) $10
There are also I Love You, I Love You More, 143 and 1434 bracelets available on my website that can be added to your order.
Please use the discount code HAWKES when ordering and it will delete the shipping charges. Books can be purchased through the end of day Friday 2/17. Books ordered after 2/13 will be mailed to the school and distributed the week of the 21st. Those ordered before will be handed to the students the day of my visit. 
  • Include your child's full name, teachers name and grade
  • Who you would like the book signed to under "notes section" on order form. You can include more than one name if you like
  • Scroll to bottom of page to order
As a fundraiser 20% of all sales will be gifted back to the school -- so you may want to have a copy signed for a cousin, friend, or expectant mom! 

Ordering on a laptop seems to work best, if you order through your phone there may not be a notes section -- in that case please send an email to Laura@LauraDuksta.com  THANK YOU!! You'll receive an email from us if we have a question.
Part of my mission is to make the world a brighter place - so we're encouraging the students and staff to wear YELLOW shirts on February 13th so they shine like the sun and the stars they are! After my visit, ask your children to share the "I AM a Genius!" and "Keep Shining!" cheers! 

Thank YOU and Keep Shining! 
Laura Duksta

P.S. Sign up for my newsletter and you'll receive a free download of my book You Are a Gift to the World/The World is a Gift to You. It's temporarily out of print, so I've made it available as an pdf ebook. You'll also be kept up to date on my new book, No Matter What, You Are Loved - that your children will be getting a sneak peek of it "in the works!"
