Sara Dippity

Sara Dippity tells the story of a young girl who finds peace from difficult times through encounters with a cardinal in her back yard. Healing is shown through the use of added color as the illustrations progress.

Sara Dippity was originally illustrated when Mary was in 5th grade. We discussed the idea of creating new illustrations for the 10th Anniversary Edition, but thought the original sketches helped share the story of healing from a child’s perspective.

Our original printing of 350 copies sold out within two years. After many requests over the years, we decided to offer a second edition, including a glimpse of Mary’s growth as an artist over the past decade (now a senior at Olivet College, studying Biological Illustration) and a page of healing activities for both children and adults.

“Sara Dippity is a sweet and touching story that will help brighten a child’s heart through an emotional journey. Children will enjoy seeing the illustrations come to life as the story unfolds.”
