We are thrilled to be offering a GIVEAWAY of a children's book by local author Yonette Belinda! What a great way to kick off summer reading with your little one!
Book Description from the Author: “We are Joined at the Heart” has received the Mom's Choice Gold Seal Award for bedtime stories. It is a book idea stemmed from a short poem I wrote for my daughter when she was just a toddler. I found she would say it along with me each night. This book was created as a special gift to Hannah, a way to turn that poem of deep, abiding love, into a colorful story that we could enjoy over and over.
The poem is the opening to the book:
“I will love you in the morning.
I will love you through noon.
I will love you till late, late in the afternoon.
I will love you in the evening and through midnight, too.
All day I will be loving you.”
In the book, the parents remind their daughter just how much she is loved, no matter the time of day or whether she is good or bad. Children need that reassurance that they are loved even when parents have to go away. The beautiful illustrations by artist Rosemarie Gillen truly bring this story to life.
As a working mother, there are times when I have to leave my daughter even when she wishes I would stay, this book shares a message with children that even if their parents are gone for work or because of a divorce or sadly even death, their love continues unendingly. it sets the foundation for an open conversation about the depth of love
