About the book – Tribute to Historical Women

In Legends from Mom’s Closet, 10-year-old Sasha Olsen documents how she
spent a rainy summer indoors using her creativity and imagination. After
reading a stack of books about women like Frida Kahlo, Audrey Hepburn and Billie Holiday, Sasha’s imagination ran wild and she ended up in her mom’s closet picking through her clothes and her grandmother’s vintage pieces to dress up like all the female legends she had been reading about. Complete with photos of the looks she created and tips for other young girls on how they, too, can emulate these iconic women, Legends from Mom’s Closet will inspire readers to delve into the lives of truly remarkable women from the past to learn a thing or two about what it means to be legendary in today’s world.

This Children’s Book Encourages kids to Accept others differences

What does a Mother do when she wants to preach love and acceptance especially when her own son has down syndrome? She writes a children’s book full of colorful illustrations and engaging characters to share an important message to kids. This is what the book, Guion the Lion, by Rebecca Wilson Macsovits is about. The story teaches its readers to accept others differences… and similarities.

Little readers will learn how appreciating and accept others differences and embracing others’ ideas can lead to unimaginable fun! This book, page by page, reflects the words of Dr. Wayne Dyer “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” Add a little imagination to that and you have Guion and her pal, Rae’s story.

Find the book on Amazon – it will be available for purchase early next week!

Two New National Geographic Children’s Books with Conservation Themes

National Geographic Children's Books

Taking care of ourselves has a brand new meaning these days. As we are forced to slow down and also help our kids finish a school year off at home it is hard to ignore the topic of self-care. Not only are we to take care of ourselves, but it is a good time to remember that we are also tasked as a species to take care of our planet. I want to introduce these 3 children/tween books for summer reading that both cover the topic of conservations.
