Children's Book Author and Illustrator
I read Scooter and Sophie to my class of first graders. They loved it! They were especially captivated by the idea that this was a true story about real animals. I loved the message of diversity and friendship that is naturally woven into the story.
How A Mother Loves is a warm and simple story of comfort and love with illustrations that beautifully pair with the words. I was delighted to find a second book by this author! My nephew responds eagerly to each illustration as we snuggle together for a bedtime read. He so looks forward to discovering the picture of the real Little Dutch and her chicks at the end of the book.
My two children frequently ask questions about God that I do not know how to answer. Have You Seen God? does an excellent job of teaching children all the ways we can see Gods loving presence everyday. My kids also love the unique illustrations, Which appear to be hand-stitched fabric!
The best part of this story is that it has started a bedtime ritual of telling at least one way we have seen God in each of our days.
