One of the fun things about being is writer is seeing the unexpected turns your book can take. This is why a few weeks ago, when the nice folks at The Returnity Project contacted me, I was delighted to hear that they wanted to include MAMA LOVES YOU SO in their new “Returnity Kit,” a kit available to help moms who are returning to work after taking maternity leave.
Here’s a photo they sent me showing the kit. I know they chose the book because they loved how it’s a beautiful way to bond with your little one, but really, doesn’t the color palette of the cover look amazing in the kit?
Cuánto mamá te quiere (Spanish edition of Mama Loves You So) received an honorable mention in the board books category of the Campoy-Ada Awards.
“The objective of this award is to recognize books for children and young adult published in Spanish in the United States, that stand out for the content originality, its literary and artistic creation, and the excellent use of Spanish.”

I’m a bit late in catching up, but here’s another lovely review of MOTHER EARTH’S LULLABY by the Two Bookworms Blog. Thank you, Barbara and Julia! Just click on the link!
Review: Mother Earth’s Lullaby
…and what better gift to give than a book. Books shape minds, give people an escape, give us something to talk about and who doesn’t have a book in their heart that has stayed with them long after childhood?
This is why I’m so excited to see Mother Earth’s Lullaby listed on Word Spelunking’s Holiday Gift Guide. The list is populated with some outstanding children’s books and authors (J. Patrick Lewis, Jane Yolen, Robert Sabuda, to name a few). Check it out for some great gift ideas!
MOTHER EARTH’S LULLABY: A SONG FOR ENDANGERED ANIMALS is now available at bookstores and online! It only took ten years for this manuscript to become a published book (but that’s for another post, when I don’t have a deadline approaching!).
Additionally, my publisher Tilbury House, offers a 20% discount to educators! But even if you’re not a teacher, I highly recommend checking out this gorgeous book. Carol Heyer‘s illustrations are stunning and something to spend some time with. Here are a couple of samples but the book has so much more–condors, pandas, wallabies, toucans, vaquitas, wolves, deer, toucans, rhinos, nēnē, and owls. Enjoy!
