In like a Lion and out like a…cardinal?

I’m pleased to announce the upcoming release of my children’s book, Sara Dippity!

Sara Dippity shares the story of a young girl who finds peace and healing through encounters with a cardinal in her backyard. Sara Dippity was originally illustrated when my daughter, Mary, was in 5th grade. We discussed the idea of creating new illustrations for the 10th Anniversary Edition but thought the original art helped share the story of healing from a child’s perspective.

The first printing quickly sold out! After many requests over the years, we decided to offer a second edition, including a glimpse of Mary’s growth as an artist (now a Senior at Olivet College studying Biological Illustration) and a page of healing activities for both children and adults.

Sara Dippity is listed in the Eluna Network National Bereavement Resource Guide
