You Are A Beautiful Beginning
You can’t go wrong with Nina Laden! Sometimes when I can’t find my own words to mark an occasion or express sympathy, solidarity, empathy, or grief—I send a book. This one will be surely earmarked for the future as it’s a book that fits so many situations; the kid trying to overcome a fear, the friend tentative to start a new endeavor, the colleague who lost a loved one unexpectedly. Poignant and lyrical, the words, illustrations, and message are heartfelt and so so beautiful.
