This book stopped me in my tracks. Exactly one month ago I launched my blog. But it started with an idea. An idea that I could share my passion for reading to my babies with other moms and inspire them to find quiet moments in the chaos to do the same.



Leave it to a children’s book to perfectly depict how it feels to put yourself and your idea out there. “At first...I didn’t know what to do with it... But it followed me.” “I showed it to other people even though I was afraid of what they would say... that it was silly... a waste of time.”



“But I liked spending time with my idea... I decided to protect it... I gave it my attention.” And in the hopeful optimism of a good children’s book “And then, I realized what you do with an idea... You change the world.”



I’m so proud of my little idea that has started to take shape. And grateful to those who have connected with it and especially my husband, for his support!



This book is so much more than a children's book. It is for anyone who has ever had an idea that begged for attention.
