I am so happy with these reviews from these leading professionals in the field of child development:

“With delightful illustrations and rhyming words that extol love, acceptance, honesty and authenticity, Always be You is a treasure to be enjoyed by children and parents alike. I will be giving this gem of a book to every new parent I know.” — Deborah Carlisle Solomon, author of Baby Knows Best: Raising a Confident and Resourceful Child, the RIE® Way

“The beauty of this book is in both the simplicity of the message of authenticity, love, and acceptance, and in the unique dimensional visuals. A lovely book to remind parents and kids to be, and to be ourselves.” — Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, co-author of The Whole-Brain Child, No-Drama Discipline, The Yes Brain, The Power of Showing Up, and author of The Bottom Line for Baby

Always Be You is a wonderful book. It is artfully crafted and clear in its message, yet filled with heart-touching nuance. You will love reading this book with your child over and over!”     — Ruth Anne Hammond, author of Respecting Babies: A New Look at Magda Gerber’s RIE approach.

There’s still so much to do, but these words send a lot of positive energy my way. I hope that others will be inspired by my book, to slow down and accept their children for who THEY are.


Always be You – available for pre-order!

I’m excited to announce that I now have North American distribution, thank you Itasca Books! Yes, this means that you can order a copy from your favourite online retailer, although that one also does a great job at eliminating independent bookshops.

Always be You is available for pre-order from Central Books, my UK distributor, Itasca Books, my North American distributor, The Book Depository (free international shipping) and amazon. Friends, there are options!

And, as we’re only one month away, here’s a peek of one of my favourite inside spreads:
