“There may be a great fire in our hearts, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke..”
I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the talented Gladys Elizabeth Barbieri on her wonderful new book!
It has been an amazing journey to collaborate on “Rubber Shoes” with her, and my admiration to her extended from her beautiful stories, to what a fantastic, positive and interesting person she is.
I will keep the secret of the story for now.
But all I can say that there will be fire, fighters, and real friendships.
Something that parents could read to their children before bed …
Written by Nicole Maillis, Illustrated by Lina Safar.
“The Animals Sleep” is a beautiful bedtime story by Thomas Heffron & illustrated by Lina Safar, to be published soon from the American Society of Sleep Medicine ASSM.
The book is part of a new educational campaign that will inform kids about sleep and healthy sleep habits. Along with picture books, ASSM are developing lesson plans and resources for teachers to use in the classroom.
The idea behind this book is that it will use children’s love for animals as a hook to get them thinking about sleep, while the content also will easily cross over into science lessons.
Each spread describes a different biome or ecosystem where various animals live and sleep. So while each spread shows some sleeping animals, a major emphasis is on showing the variety and diversity of the nature landscapes.
Sweet Dreams :)
“The Forgotten Ornament” is a 32 pages fully illustrated Christmas tale written by Erik Daniel Shein, illustrated by Lina Safar.
