This Little Light

It’s really fascinating to me that as I get older, that I’m realizing how many amazing, creative, women are around me. Some of them I see on a regular basis in real life, and others I only have contact with virtually (thanks, Facebook!). I have friends who are photographers (obviously), friends who can make amazing things with their hands (quilts, scarves, mittens, you name it), friends that are stylish & know their way around a closet in the most fun way possible, friends who are living out their dreams inspiring others, & friends who are writers. One of those virtual writer friends, Jessica Collaço, just released this sweet-as-pie book, Firenze’s Light. Jessica & I went to middle & high school together & I always knew she’d do something creative in her life. We re-connected on Facebook & when I saw that she had started a Kickstarter campaign to bring her dream of writing a children’s book to life, it was a no-brainer that I was going to sign up. I was so excited when the book was finally released & I’m beyond happy to say that it’s wonderful. Both Finn & Matilda made us read it to them every night for a stretch & every time I read it, I couldn’t help think about how cool it was that I knew the person who wrote it. If you’re looking for a beautiful new children’s book (seriously, I’m in love with the artwork!) that has a fantastic story of kindness & learning to love your uniqueness (without being heavy-handed & saccharine) I highly recommend checking out Firenze’s Light.

You can find Firenze’s Light on Amazon or on the publisher’s website
